Journaling your goals - Parts 3 and 4

Parts 3 and 4 are up! The latest newsletters in my ongoing journal series on goal setting tackle confidence and commitment (Part 3) and your steps to success (Part 4).

Did you know that confident goal setters are more committed to their goals, use more effective strategies to achieve them, put forth greater effort, persevere longer, and are more resilient to failure?

Boost your confidence with the Goal Setter Journal Page -- Part 3:

When you're ready to take action, write a list of the steps you'll take to achieve your goal. Then, here's the trick: take those steps and break them down into even smaller steps. After that, you might even want to think about breaking them down again.

This is my rule of thumb: if I look at my next step and think, "Ugh. I'm not sure I can or want to do that," the step is too big. I divide the Ugh-I-can't-do-that step into several smaller steps so I can get moving right away, rather than stalling my progress by procrastinating on an action I don't want to take.

It works! Give it a try.

I'm putting the finishing touches on this week's newsletter, which is all about tracking your progress toward your goal. If you'd like to have it delivered straight to your inbox, click here to subscribe.

Best wishes and happy journaling!
