My mother and Jim Rohn are two of the human beings that had a profound and real impact on my life in my early twenties (when I knew everything already…duh). They taught me how to live a good life. Did you know there’s a secret to living the good life? This week I recorded a podcast called Creating Your Good Life that is dedicated to my mama. Happy would-be 60th to her. In the podcast I talk about how setting goals in 6 focus areas can help you achieve the dreams you have not only for your business, but for your whole life. (You can listen to it here: BossUp! Podcast.)
You’ve been told 4,871 times that it’s important to write your goals down, but you’re still not doing it. Maybe you’ve tried and were really good about it for a few months, but got out of the habit. I get you. It’s easy to do. Here’s the thing – you need to be writing down your goals if you want to be successful. Seriously.
What if I told that you people who write down their goals are TEN TIMES more likely to get what they want than those who don’t? It’s true. And I’m not just talking about business either. This applies to your whole life: Personal, Spiritual, Financial, Health, Business, and Relationships. BOOM.
I created The Good Life Mini Guide to walk you through these 6 areas of goal-setting.
- You’ll start by writing down your biggest, most wild and scary goals for each focus area.
- Next you’re going to break it down by creating two step goals for each big goal.
- And last comes the real work. It’s time to break your step goals into action steps which are the activities that keep you on track and moving toward that big goal.

Still not convinced you need to be writing down your goals? Ok, let me drop some science on you!
A Harvard Business study found that:
- 83% of the population does not have goals
- 14% have a plan in mind, but are unwritten goals
- 3% have goals written down
The 14% who have goals are TEN TIMES more successful than those without goals. Even better, the 3% who took the time write down their goals are THREE TIMES more successful than the 14% with unwritten goals even. The reality is that most people are not writing down exactly what they want and because of that they aren’t living The Good Life. If you want to be in that 3%, download and print The Good Life Mini Guide and start now!
I hope that having a guide will make it more do-able for you. I have been going through this guide myself with some of my team and I have to say it’s a lot of fun. I’m dreaming big, but I’m also putting it into perspective by breaking everything down into manageable chunks.
