Here are some top tips to keep you on track:-

- Proper goals that have meaning and can be measured
- Writing them down – “What gets written gets done…” Bev Wilkinson or the management guru “What gets measured gets done…” Tom Peters
- Why? – the reason behind the goal – that is the motivation, see yourself having already achieved it. This is why it matters.
- Time to focus on achievement, ensuring within your how you have increments of time so you can see if you are moving forward with it.
- Replace weaknesses or temptations with new rituals.
- Goal buddy will help you work towards the goal.
- Most importantly reward yourself and celebrate accomplishment.
Systems lead to goals therefore a performance goal is always more powerful than an achievement goal. You may win the race however if you save 2 seconds on your last time that performance is a better measure than winning the race the achievement.
