Last week, I wrote a post entitled, Why I’m Not Sharing My 2019 Goals This Year. I shared that research shows that we shouldn’t share our goals publicly as we’re less likely to achieve them. But who SHOULD we be sharing them with? In today’s episode, I’ll share what has and what hasn’t worked for me.
In years past, I’ve often shared my goals with just about anyone who will hear (or read) them. I’ve shouted them from the rooftops as if to say, “Look at my incredible ambition.” But I’m no longer doing that. Here’s why.
Before I get to why I’m NOT sharing my goals, let’s talk about why we DO share our goals.
There are many reasons why we might share our goals with others, but I believe there are three primary reasons.
Ever said to yourself or to others that you just don’t have the time? Well, that is simply just NOT true. Today’s episode will bust this myth and show you how to get the things done that you need to get done.
I just finished an amazing training with Jonathan Milligan and I HAD to share these 3 takeaways. If you want to watch the FULL training (and I suggest you do), watch it here.
If you watched Part 1 of Jeff Walker’s LaunchCon 2017 event, you know that it was absolutely awesome. If you haven’t watched part 1 yet, click here to watch it now. Mark Sieverkropp from my team attended and we had so many takeaways and lessons that we had to split it into two parts. Watch below for the rest of our takeaways from this awesome event.
If you attended Jeff Walker’s LaunchCon event in October 2017 in Dallas, Texas then you know just how awesome it was! If you didn’t attend, you missed out on some amazing lessons and takeaways. Luckily, Mark Sieverkropp from my team was there and in this video (and part two coming soon) he and I will break down some of the biggest lessons and takeaways from this awesome event.
There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
If you’re anything like me and read more than a few blogs, you’ve endured a month-long series of year-in-review posts. So here is another one. 🙂
When I looked back on the year that was, I realized that it was a year of ups and downs, wild successes and miserable failures, excitement and boredom. In other words, it was just like any other year. It was a microcosm of life itself.
What else should we expect?
The truth is, in most regards, 2015 was my best year ever (thanks, Michael Hyatt!). In others, it was more of a struggle, but I know without a doubt that those things will improve in the coming year.
Last week, I wrote a post entitled, Why I’m Not Sharing My 2016 Goals This Year. In it, I explained that research shows that we shouldn’t share our goals publicly. But who should we be sharing them with?
To best answer that question, I’ll share what has and what hasn’t worked for me.
Who NOT to Share Your Goals With
1. Anyone and everyone
I covered this last week, but it bears repeating. Don’t share your goals with anyone who will listen. The act of doing so feels too much like an accomplishment.
Don’t post them on social media or write about them on your blog. Unless you have a very compelling reason to do so.
Almost every time I have done this, I have failed to reach my goal.
