Let’s be honest. We all have aspirations to knock out a goal or two and hopefully retain the habits that helped us reach the objective. For some it’s weight loss, improved organization, complete a educational degree, tackle a half marathon or increase sales. Whatever the goal is it can be overwhelming and thinking of the end result just makes it look out of reach.
I was reminded at my weekly sales training led by my coach, Matt Nettleton from Sandler Sales Training, that with commitment and a plan any goal can be accomplished.
One of my non-work related goals is becoming a better freestyle swimmer. To improve my 100-yard swim time by 15 seconds seems untouchable. But knowing what I need to do every day by breaking down the goal into little chunks makes it manageable.
Matt gave me simple ‘Attitude Behavior Journal’ focused on three keys:
- Define leading indicators of success.
- Model consistent behavior.
- Be accountable.
Seems way to easy, but how often do we break big goals down into little chunks?
