The most commonly used, dare I say “overused” goal setting worksheet formula out there has to be the familiar S.M.A.R.T. goals formula – which stands for….

Specific

Measurable

Attainable

Realistic

Timely

 The SMART goals template has indeed helped thousand of would-be goal achievers move from desire to possibility.

All good for sure and certainly better than no specific criteria at all… but I believe however that the SMART goals formula falls short in several areas and may actuary be one of the many reasons most people fail to achieve their final desired outcome.

In my book 7 Rules of Achievement  I outline what I believe from my own personal experience and from having coached thousands of people through the process is a better more effective way.

I call it the -  A.C.T.I.O.N. GOALS CRITERIA – and it is designed to create, not just a “written” goal, but rather a more crystallized, powerful and effective “outcome achievement statement” and kick off the process of  programing (without any ambiguity) both the conscious and unconscious mind to move congruently in the direction of the goal seekers desired outcome.

How to Create Your Outcome Achievement Statement using the ACTION Goals Criteria: Goal Setting Worksheet

The proper guidelines for creating an achievable outcome or “Outcome Achievement Statement” can be summed up as “ACTION”

A – Accessible  

C – Clearly Stated and Concise  

T – Towards and Timed  

 I – Impassioned 

O – Organic 

N – As if Now  

Accessible:

This means simply that your objective must be accessible. Meaning it must be within reach and (more…)

Have you ever had the experience of holding back or not doing something because you were afraid it wouldn’t be perfect? Or maybe you doggedly and tirelessly worked on perfecting something before revealing or releasing it -and by the time you did (if you ever did) it was to late or you completely missed the impact it might have had earlier? Or maybe you got so caught up in making sure it was “just right” that you missed out on the fun or reward of just freaking doing it.

It happens all the time.

I can remember as a stupid kid missing out on a really cool and what should have been fun bike ride all my friends were taking just because I had to make sure my bike had the perfect spit shine… I was seriously bummed.

Case in point:

Last week I sent out an email (perhaps you received it) announcing a very special teleseminar I was doing with lifestyle strategist, John Rowley. The email started with a silly spelling error that I nor my computers spell check (which I depend on heavily) had caught.

Here was the line from that email:

“If you have ever been asked for advise or have even been given advise… you already have an idea of exactly what coaching IS NOT!”

Did you catch the errors? (more…)



Well, I think we can agree that we don’t want to be just anywhere. We want to be where it is we want to be, and we want to know for sure we’re there.

Creating personalized easily recognizable and undeniable road signs, landmarks, and mile markers, to help you recognize where you are on your journey is imperative. Those same signs will also tell you exactly when you have arrived at your destination. It is important to understand that the terrain itself will look different than the map you have created. The map is the overview; the terrain is (more…)



Achievement Process 7 of  7

In this video I share the 7th RULE  in the Achievement Process and what it’s going to take to claim and hold your turf against some serious opposition. This RULE perhaps more than any other RULE in The 7 RULES of Achievement can make or break your ability to succeed.

New friend, West Conner gives a heart-felt testimonial for me, Tom Terwilliger and my new book, 7 Rules of Achievement.

Achievement Training part 6 of 7:

In this video training Tom Terwilliger, The Achievement Mentor and #1 best selling author of 7 RULES of Achievement goes beyond the tangible application of the first 5 RULES of Achievement and invokes the power of IMAGINATION.



Achievement Process part 5 of 7

I explore how the map is different than the terrain and that evidence of progress is critical in eliminating frustration and failure.  Make sure you have determined in advance what you must see, hear, or feel to know with absolute certainty that you are making progress and when you have arrived.

-The Achievement Mentor



Achievement Process part 4 of 7

It’s all about identifying in advance the resources you currently have and the resources you are very likely going to need to reach the finish line. After watching this video and putting the lesson into practice there will never be another “legitimate” excuse for not reaching your desired outcome.

Stop Breaking The RULES and Start Achieving Your Potential
