Basically Incredible Goals

By Matt Booth
It is getting close to New Year ’ s Day . What are your goals for 2022 ? Are you thinking about them yet ? For over 20 years , I ’ ve been carrying my goals with me . I don ’ t just set New Year ’ s Resolutions and forget them for a year . When it comes to goal writing and accomplishment , there are three things I believe you should do . These three basic steps to take will lead to incredible results . 1 . Write down your dreams 2 . Review them monthly 3 . Carry them with you
The first thing you need to do is take your dreams and write them on a piece of paper . When you capture a dream on a piece of paper , the magic starts to happen . Take the dreams floating around in your head and turn them into realty . The basic act of writing them down allows you to plan and create action steps for success . When you write them down , you can see them , feel them , smell them , and even touch them . This is the first step of accomplishing your goals .
The second step is reviewing your goals monthly . This isn ’ t as difficult as you think . I ’ m not talking about hours each month ; you should review your goals for 10 or
15 minutes each month . The process of reviewing your goals on a monthly basis activates your mind , and you will automatically start breaking down bigger goals into action steps . You will turn goals into SMART goals or a dream map or a process that works best for you . Reviewing your goals and keeping them top of mind each month is a big part of accomplishing your dreams and living in an incredible life .
The third piece of this basic goal accomplishment method is carrying your goals with you . According to research , less than three percent of Americans have written goals , and even less carry them . If you are among the three percent of Americans that have written goals , there is no reason you shouldn ’ t carry them with you . Just about everyone I know carries a device with them at all times , even to the bathroom . There is no excuse for not having your goals with you .
As we approach 2022 , start thinking about your resolutions and dreams and where you want to be in the future . Try this basic goal accomplishment strategy that I ’ ve been using for over 20 years to turn my dreams into reality . Write down your dreams , review them monthly , and carry them with you . If you do this basic simple , even boring process for a minimum of 12 months , I guarantee you will see incredible results . •
“ Writing , reviewing , and carrying your goals starts a chain of events that will make your life basically incredible .” — Matt Booth
