Goal achievement has a concrete agenda when you commit your plans to writing. It’s like having a visual promise sitting right out in front of you every day that won’t let you forget it. And that goes double if, like me, you have a tough time remembering what goals you met or made last week…
So, if you really want to get an accurate picture of your progress and what it takes to reach your goals, start tracking yourself on a daily basis. Some people call it a daily diary, others journaling and as corny as it may seem, it works. It works because it leaves no room for guessing games or fooling yourself. Your actions (or inactions) are right there in black and white.
Over time a journal can show you what has worked and what didn’t. Take your stories of success and use them as the groundwork for future successes or as inspirational motivators when you find your courage and discipline waning.
You don’t need fancy paper or books to journal. In fact, there are great phone apps and computer software products that can keep things digital and private. But for me, putting ink to paper just seems so natural.
Whether it is to keep your ideas or memories from fading, or to keep motivation at its peak, writing is a common theme through every stage of successful goal achievement. Got a goal? Write it down. The act of writing creates a promise: a promise you can keep.
