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.

O – Organic 

N – As if Now  

Accessible:

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.

Have you ever noticed that almost all great achievers never seem to miss an opportunity to get what they want?

I believe this is due in part to two very powerful forces working (more…)



“Tell me your goal and I will tell you WHY you haven’t achieved it… YET!

The way in which you have pursued goals in the past has very likely created the exact opposite blueprint of the one needed to achieve what you want. Those negative blueprints may be exactly what are keeping you from living your dreams” –Tom Terwilliger, 7 RULES of Achievement
