I have spent a number of months working really hard to get a few things in place, that includes new clients and contracts both private and corporate for training and therapy. Now it is all falling into place and although it will take a few more weeks until everything is fully up and running, the bulk of the hard work is over and the fun can begin.
None of this would have been possible if I had not practiced what I preach and used my goal setting strategy. Yet again it has proven invaluable and pretty much on schedule, because I set a goal of having these things in place by my birthday, which is actually today and I am sitting here working from home with a big smile on face. Not because it’s my birthday, although that does help, it is down to the fact that what seemed like a million miles away last year when I started planning it all, is now within touching distance.
Now, I have the attention span of a goldfish and this takes some doing for me to maintain that focus consistently and setting out clear, precise goals with well-formed outcomes and having them printed out on my wall makes a huge difference for me. Yes I love what I do for a living and I need to create a safe and comfortable future for my kids, so I have plenty of incentives to stay on track and get the work done, which has included many late nights and early starts. I’m sure there are many of you out there who have young kids and if you’ve ever tried working from home, particularly at the weekend, it is quite a challenge to get anything done, because rightly so, kids want to be with you and play games or sit and watch TV with you. All so much easier to do than work!!
If you haven’t seen my goal setting pdf, take a look at the Free Stuff tab on here as I have put it back there for another week, it is my birthday week after all and I’m feeling generous. Have a look at the other stuff there as well and once you’ve read it I’d love to hear your thoughts on it and I’d also love to hear about how you’ve used it and how it works for you.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.
