Yep Black Friday is here and I have nothing to offer.
Apart from this true story.
Many years ago I was an able Seaman.
I've clocked up many sea hours including about 10 transatlantic crossings to and from Europe & Caribbean waters.
I've been through some horrendous storms and experienced some scary stuff.
Crossing to Europe takes a long time and gives a man plenty of time to think.
I used to sit my night watch navigating the Atlantic and planning goals for my future.
I loved the 4-6am watch simply because of the sun rise, heading east into the rise is phenomenal...
The sun rises across the Atlantic pouring sunlight into the deepest blue ocean without a ripple or breath of wind present, sometimes Dolphins come to play in the bow waves.
Natures sheer beauty is breathtaking and a money can't buy experience.
Anyway I digress from what I really wanted to talk about.
Recently I've had a few personal challenges and got stuck trying to find a solution to a problem.
And the answer came from the most unlikely source, (it always does)
I cast my mind back to my seafaring days and my night watches.
I found some goals I would achieve and some I wouldn't.
I figured the one's I didn't hit were the one's far out into the future or something a little bit too big to believe in.
I've research how the mind works and put many man hours into my findings.
Below is my Black Friday nothing to offer offering... which is worth more that a discounted sale.
My gift to you.
When you are setting goals have a big picture by all means but goal but also break your goals down into 4 easy steps as follows:
I recently had to be reminded sometimes we just need to take things hour by hour here in the now.
- Pick something believable and small to practice with. (say an extra 2 new clients?)
- Set a timeframe no longer that 3 months into future (really important!).
- Break the 3 month goal down into monthly, weekly, daily, hourly.
- Rinse and repeat with a new goal.
Promise me you will give this ago because if nothing else this one's a life saver and so simple it's often overlooked.
P.S. If you still struggle with the concept then drop me a message and I'll send you over a simple spread sheet you can work from to make it really easy for you. Right I'm off to spend some cash and grab a bargain.
