One Simple Step to Achieving More Goals and Holding Yourself Accountable Posted on January 26, 2019January 26, 2019 by Derrick Clark Several years ago I got into the habit of making lists. This alone isn’t a game change really, but, the unintended side effect of it is. See, I kept the notebooks as they were filled up and began to revisit them. At one point, writing yearly goals on the first page of each notebook also became a habit, and I have found that those old goals serve as reminders to keep moving forward. There is just something more profound about capturing a goal in writing than simply leaving it in your head. This isn’t ground breaking information though, almost all of us know this. How many are actually practicing it though? Someone once told me “give yourself some time, you’ll be very surprised to see where you end up in five years”. So, give yourself some time. A year is plenty of time to start and complete that business plan, write an article, get in shape or to begin countless other healthy habits. Put your goals down somewhere, look at them from time to time. You WILL be surprised of where you find yourself in the near future.
