Here's a question for you:
What would you like to have accomplished 100 days from now?
Why 100 days from now?
Well, why not? Besides, 100 is a nice round number.
You might think, ``That's not enough time. What can I possibly accomplish in only 100 days?''
Very much if you put your mind to it and use the right tools.
So what would you like to accomplish in the next 100 days?
Would it be:
Begin to save money. If you simply gave up that soda and/or candy bar each day, that $1-plus would be more than $100 by the end of the year.
Get rid of that excess weight you have been carrying around? Sure, it would be nice if you could get rid of a pound a day, just like saving a dollar a day. Though it doesn't work that way, you could be well on your way to getting rid of that extra weight.
Start the business of which you have always dreamed.
Get your priorities in order.
Change a destructive pattern in an important relationship.
Break a bad habit and replace it with a positive one.
Whatever it may be for you, there are certain key rules that should be followed to achieve your goals. Here are just a few to get you started:
The Rule of Ink - The dullest ink is stronger than the sharpest memory. In other words, write down your goals. Commit them to paper. Just this simple action greatly increases the likelihood of meeting your goals.
The Rule of Work - Richard Bach said “There is no such thing as a wish without the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however. " Goals require work, as do many things worth doing.
The Rule of Dreams - It has been said that “a goal is a dream with a deadline. " One of the keys to successfully achieving goals is to have a deadline that other people know about. This will help hold you accountable. And then if you really want to change your life, achieve the goal before the deadline.
The Rule of Persistence - In the battle between the rock and the river, the river always wins. Not because the river is stronger, but because the river has the power of persistence. Stick with it! Don't die of thirst a few feet from the water fountain.
The Rule of Action - Never leave the place where you set a goal without taking some action toward it. This prevents the No. 1 goal stealer _ procrastination _ from setting in, and it creates momentum toward your goal. Then, keep taking action and taking action and taking action and taking some more action.
