3 Goals For The Day

Listen Now:

This is something I recently started incorporating and it has been working wonders for me, so I wanted to share it with you. It has helped me find direction and purpose in the way I spend time on a daily basis

I have been writing down my 3 goals for the day and returning to them at night to see how I did.

I’ve heard this tip come in a few different forms and I finally decided to test it for myself. What I do is I write down my 3 goals for the day on a sticky note that I put on the wall behind my bed. Other good options are to put a sticky on your phone, leave a note on your bed, or what I want to graduate to, keep it on a whiteboard. Writing down your goals gives you the accountability to achieve them, and everyone can use an extra push like that. This accountability is very strong, and statistics show, that you are 80% more likely to achieve a goal if it is written down somewhere.   

As for the goals I am working toward on a daily basis, I keep them simple and specific to that day. For me, it’s important that goals are doable, because there is no fun in setting yourself up for failure.  

Test it out today, or if it’s too late, tomorrow. Write your three goals for the day down either the night before or first thing in the morning, go about your day, then revisit those goals at the end of the day. These goals have a funny way of sticking in the back of your mind and driving your behavior.
