YOU CAN SET GOALS
Goal setting Myth #22
I have too much stuff in my life to set goals
IF that stuff is achieving, contributing, helping others, securing your own future then you are good to go. If that stuff is holding you back it may be some “bad habits” you have picked up.
They may not be bad in themselves, but they hold back your success. These could be “I have to watch all my favourite TV programs”, or “I have to go to the pub with my mates after work”, or “I have to sleep until 7am every morning”.
If you have a “bad habit” that needs changing, try the “27th June” technique. Set a date in 30-days in the future and give yourself permission to indulge in the habit then, but NOT BEFORE. Put up posit-it notes around the house, car, office with that date on it. No one else need know what it means.
Here is the kick, if you give in before the date you have to start again, so hang in there. By the time the 30 days is up you won’t feel the need to indulge in that habit anymore. The thing you gave up could now become a reward for achieving a milestone or goal.
The “27th June” technique can also be used to create a new habit. Why 27th June? Ask me.
