I recently fell in love with a goal-setting workbook called Pick Four*. In Ron Dawson’s interview with us a few weeks ago, he mentioned this goal-setting strategy. (Ron always has brilliant business insight. I rushed to Amazon to learn more about this book.)
Seth Godin published the book based on Zig Ziglar‘s goal-setting techniques. Seth asks readers to pick four goals, write out ‘the story’ of accomplishing these goals, and write a daily summary on the accomplishments (or non-accomplishments) in working towards the goal. It’s easy-peasy, simple!
I’ve recently started charting out my goals for the first quarter of 2012 with Pick Four* and I’m finding it very helpful and FUN. What I like about this tool (versus others that I’ve used) is the daily journaling involved. Taking five minutes to reflect on my goals and accomplishments daily is helpful in achieving goals. And, the idea of picking four goals ONLY goes nicely with my own goal-setting strategy where I never focus on more than three or four goals at one time.
I highly recommend Pick Four* for your goal-setting!
