Have you ever said to yourself…
“Where did my year go?”
Sure you have. But, most of the time it was in response to someone pointing out how fast the year came and went.
Remember how you started the year on a high note. “This is the year!” you said.
You put your head down and started working. Full of enthusiasm and hope, you told your friends that you didn’t have time for their parties, going to the movies, or that barbecue (that you really don’t like going to anyway) because “you have work to do.”
They gave you that look… The one that said suuuurree. I’ve heard that before.
And, they’re right. You’ve tried and failed before. In fact, your last mistake almost caused you to give up on your dreams completely…
This time would be different.
You were unfazed by all the comments from family about your “new project.”
You happily spend your free time creating products, laying out plans, and daydreaming about the day that you make it big…
…or at least make enough money to stop stressing about bills and finally go on a real vacation.
As the months passed…
You found yourself less and less enthused about the progress of your side project. It wasn’t making the money that you’d hoped for…
You had four projects that were incomplete. The software you thought was going to take you to the next level was sitting on your computer unused. The gurus you’d been listening to had conflicting ideas and you didn’t know which one to follow. So, you did nothing.
You’d started learning how to market on Facebook but got distracted when someone told you YouTube was the way to go. So, you turned to YouTube videos…
The videos weren’t your thing but you did them anyway until you found out that Instagram was the place to be…
And, you can’t forget about all of the wealthy execs on LinkedIn. To wrap it all up, your website was still “under construction”…
At some point, the simple plan that you began the year with was now so congested and complicated that you scrapped it…
Because you knew what you needed to do.
You just had to do it.
You redoubled your efforts. You resorted to to-do lists. Each week that list got longer and longer while your list of completed projects barely grew. And, now you’re ashamed to even look at the list…
The happiness is gone.
But, when friends and family ask you, “How’s business?” You smile and tell them “I’m still building” because you don’t want to let them know…
…that you’re struggling to make real progress
…you’ve lost your focus
…and you’re flat out scared to do anything more than read blogs, post inspirational quotes, and watch how-to videos.
One day while sitting in your favorite chair drinking your third cup of coffee (trying to get yourself fired up to work on your business), you decide to make another plan.
The only problem is you don’t know how to make a plan. The past year is proof of that.
You know what you need, though. You need a system.[/text_block]
The ideal goal-setting system
…would have what you needed all in one place and help you get things done without having to relearn some complicated steps and be super organized like a biochemist with OCD. (That would be awesome!)
In a final effort to find some solace, you ask God for some help. You tell Him that the perfect system for you would…
- Help you narrow down my goals so you don’t get overwhelmed
- Help you overcome my procrastination and other excuses you give myself for stopping and starting
- Stop you from being tentative about what you want to do so that you can walk in my purpose (or personal mission)
- Teach you how to find the time in my schedule to write and create so that you can continue to have successful days
- Give you a good time management system so you’re not frustrated and all over the place
- Help you prioritize so you can finish my projects
- Help you decide the right steps to achieve my goals after you write them
- Determine what’s really important to you instead of always doing for everyone else
- Keep you focused so you don’t go after every new idea you come up with
- Help you set realistic goals that you know you can achieve when you want to set outrageous goals that you know you can’t do in the time you want them done
- Show you how to break out of my comfort zone and take risks even when you’re scared to death of what people will say
- Jump back on course after a slump and build my self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth
- Get the knowledge and skills you need to be unstoppable
Soooo… off to the internets you go looking for answers.
You find books that say time management is the key. While others say you should manage your energy…
One system says focus on your long-term goals. Another says long-term goals are too far off to focus on…
Time blocking and weekly schedules sound like they might be a good thing to do but you’re not sure exactly how to do them…
Then, there was something about eliminating social media and not looking at your email because it’s distracting. That made sense, too, but does that mean you have to spend every waking hour working?
That’s not the life you want. You want more freedom not another job…
You just want to know what you’re supposed to do to build a successful business step-by-step and the answers you’ve found were good but they weren’t organized.
If only you had a system that would put everything together…
Would Be The Golden Chalise of Achievement
This of course is the point where I’m supposed to offer you the golden chalise of goal achievement. Sorry, I don’t have one of those.
What I do have is a simple system based on science and personal experience. This is the system that took me from a big-dreamer to a big-doer.
With this system, you will start finishing the stuff that you start. Your friends will be amazed at how much you get done. (I’m not kidding. I here this almost every week!)
And, you won’t sacrifice the time you have to spend doing the things that mean the mnost to you or lose out on spending time with your favorite people. (Check out the feedback from a couple of my students below.)
Now, if you’re ready to procrastinating on the stuff that you know you want to get done, simply click the “I’m Ready” button on this page for access to the e-course that will show you how to make your life happen.
To your success…
