The Road To Guarantee Failure

Sunday, October 29, 2006

This is for all the people who want to have goals but not achieve them.I've found this funny, full of wisdom article on Achieve-IT
, and there are a few parts that I love from this article.Very true, and also funny.I love this list ..

  • And while you’re at it, you might want to set a goal of getting a job doing something.
  • Avoid planning incremental steps - It’s likely that if you have made it this far you are already following this rule already! Take a goal - even a specific goal like “I will double my income by this time next year”. Then simply leave it as-is. Don’t write down any tasks or steps you’ll need to complete in order to achieve it. Just consider the goal a wish and nothing more. Creating a step-by-step plan will only confuse matters because it’s all too easy to take action on simple steps. Action in the direction of your goal would lead to success and you definately don’t want that.
  • Talk - Because talk is easier than action, this step one of the easiest steps for you to take. Try to fill up as much of your day with socializing as possible. Talk about all the things you will do someday or that you were gonna do. Just make sure you don’t mess it up by doing anything productive. Action is your enemy. Embrace your excuses!
  • Wait until you are motivated - Let’s face it, it’s much too difficult to go jogging or open a mutual fund account when you simply don’t feel like it. So just wait. Waiting gives you the peace of mind that someday, you might do something. But not yet, the timing isn’t right and you aren’t motivated anyway.
  • Don’t set a date - Setting a date when you expect to achieve your goal is too much pressure. Who needs it?
