Mastering important skills: what is the most important yet least practiced skill you need to master you ask?
It is of course goal setting.
It is often spoken about but so few people actually DO it. A massive longitudinal study by the esteemed Yale University in the 1950’s followed the progress through life of their graduate class from 1953. They found that only 3% of the graduates actually wrote down their goals at the start of their careers, and 20 years later that same 3% were worth more than the other 97% put together.
So what is the deal? How is this supposed to be done for the highest chance of success? As alluded to previously, the first step is to go past ‘thinking’ about it and get into ‘doing it’. When I say ‘doing it’, I mean putting into action the precise steps that give your brain, your most powerful ally, the best chance to put you on an irrevocable path to success (whatever that means to you – but you better have health in there and you know why!)
The following steps relate to a proven method of putting it together which dovetails with how the brain has been shown with amazing modern day technology to actually work.
See Brian Mayne and Goal mapping for more information on this methodology of goal setting.
All the best for a great 2015. Remember, without health you have NOTHING!
