Here we are on September 23, 2009, 100 days from the 2009 finish line.
We might have set lofty goals for the year , but time and circumstance might have derailed our plans.
Is there a means of getting back on track?
Why is December 31, 2009 Important right now?
One of the most valuable lessons to be learned, in terms of achieving goals, is to begin at the end. When working towards any goal, most people begin at the logical beginning . The problem with starting at the beginning is most of us are focused on where we are right now. It is natural to begin from where our current strengths and weaknesses are. Then what we normally do is put one foot forward based on those things.
So What’s wrong with that?
We may spend valuable time chasing things that don’t matter and ignoring the things that do matter either because of ignorance or unwillingness to commit to finding a better way. Those that have the greatest chances of finding the solutions to their problems or challenges are the people who seek first to discover what it is that they do not know. To have the right answers, you need to possess the right questions.
Are these your questions?
. What specific results have you achieved so far this year?
2. Are you healthier, wealthier, and wiser?
3. Are you winning, losing or just holding ground?
4. What results are you committed to achieve
by the end of the year?
5. How have you grown and what have you
learned this year?
6. Is there any unfinished business that needs
to be tended to in your life?
7. Are you actively pursuing what’s most
important on a daily basis?
8. What habits do you need to change to
ensure better results?
9. What is the key issue that inhibits your
ability to perform at your best?
10. Want to do something to positively change your situation?
