If you have always been procrastinating on how to get started or going with your goals, try this interesting method. Write a blog.
“What? You are asking me to publicly declare my goals?” Before you start thinking that this is another fruitless suggestion, would it convince you if we are to tell you that famous professional life coaches such as Anthony Robbins actually encourage people “to make commitments to others who hold them to a higher standard” about their goals?
When you make public announcements to people you trust about your goals, tendency is, you will do whatever it takes to achieve your wildest dreams so as not to disappoint them. You will be less likely to stray from your bottom-line.
“Alright, I am convinced of benefits of announcing my goals. But why must I have a blog?” A blog gives you more advantages than what a verbal announcement can provide. It helps you to
(1) Expand No. of People You Are Committed To Imagine declaring your goals to entire internet community! Being online and available 24 by 7, almost anyone who have access to your blog url would be able to share your joys and frustrations in pursuit of your dreams. Even your loved ones working or studying overseas would be able to know your progress through internet. Surely you would not want to let them down by procrastinating on your goal tasks?
(2) Focus and Review Your Goals As you write about your goal progress in blog, you are actually focusing and reviewing targets and methods in your goal plan. Say for example, your goal is to lose 20 pounds in 6 months. After sticking to a non-fat diet for 3 months, you find that your weight loss remained stagnant upon reviewing your past blog records. At this time, it may be appropriate for you to change your approach towards achieving your goal. You may want to add some exercise into your goal tasks, or change timeline of your target. Sometimes, if you allow readers to add comments or suggestions to your blog, you might also receive an interesting tip or two from your friends or public who have “been there, done that”.
