Recently, I ran across an article written by Larry Galler who is a professional coach and consultant for high-performance executives, professionals, and small businesses. In this article Larry suggests that; in many situations when working with an individual who can't or won't be motivated to achieve ambitious goals that the best tactic or practice may be to scale back the size of the goal and shorten the time period for the achievement. Larry has a very informative newsletter at http://www.larrvgaller.com
I remember way back in my early years as a portrait photographer, a mentor of mine known around the globe as Don Feltner would always use the expression…“success is hard by the yard but a cinch by the inch” while describing the many steps in building a marketing campaign…the task is huge if you look at it as one major project but if you take it apart and look at it in little pieces it does not look so impossible.
Another expression that I have heard from several of my mentors is; “How Do You Eat an Elephant?” Answer: “One piece at a time.”
The same is true with goal setting. If you dissect the large, seemingly impossible “big goal” and break it down into smaller or sub-goals, it then becomes much more realistic. As I was searching for new info on setting goals, I stumbled across a neat site where you can actually download a FREE demo program that will help you manage your goals. More advanced versions are available as well. Check it out at http://www.goalenforcer.com/blog/
So, if you are not serious about goal setting and tend to shy away from goal setting, I suggest that you at least give it a try and just watch yourself accomplish that task “as easy as running a hot knife through butter.” (You’ll be surprised at how easy it is!)
Remember – 2 batteries offer more power that just one!
