Tip 3

Do you write down your goals? If you do you're more likely to get what you want.

 

Here are simple ways to set a goal and note your achievements.

 

Setting an income goal

If you want to earn $50,000 a year, that's $1,000 per week, $200 per day, and if you charge $50 per hour, that’s four chargeable hours a day. Double all these figures if you want to earn $100,000 a year.


Goals and your to-do list

On Friday decide the goals you want to achieve during the next week and write them on Monday in your diary or in your electronic calendar. Every day write a “to-do” list with the actions needed to achieve the goals. The list should have about three to five activities.

Turn to Saturday in your paper diary and list your achievements or put them in your electronic calendar.

You may not have signed a multi million dollar contract, discussed the formula for changing the world, but I bet almost without exception you have achieved much more than you realise, simply because you didn’t write it down at the time. Or thought it was not worth recording.
