How To Score Big In 2021!
By Mason Hancock
Since I joined Team peak, setting goals has become the key focus of my life!
We have weekly, monthyl, quaterly and year indivual goals, plus the same for the team!
On top of that we also have 3, 5 and 10 year team goals too!
This has meant I have had to get good at setting and achevieing goals fast, so ehre are my top tips for success!
Before setting any goal you first need to know, why are you setting them? If you understand this, you are far more likely to stay on track during difficult times and ultimately achieve them. By writing goals down you can be upto 42% more likely to achieve them as through this exercise you are combining the conscious and subconscious parts of the brain.
Upto 95% of our personality and decisions are said to be determined by our subconscious brain, this is the area of the brain that also controls our breathing, digestion, blinking and so much more, these are the things we do without thinking.
So by doing this exercise consciously think about your goals, putting pen to paper and writing them down you are aligning your conscious goals with your subconscious actions and decisions. The goals themselves have to be specific to you, and there needs to be an understanding of how achieving that goal will affect you. It's fantastic writing “i will be a millionaire by 50”, but how will that specifically affect your then situation.
Once you’ve done that, next you need to work backwards creating smaller goals, again specific to you that will help you to achieve the overall goal. A common example of this is 90 day, 1 year, 3 year, 5 year and 10 year goals.
Dream big, imagine how you want your life to look in 10 years time, then understand what needs to be in place for that to happen.
Then start to break it down, if in 10 years I need X,Y and Z what does my 5 year goal look like to be on track to achieve it and so on and so on.
This is an exercise i’ve been doing myself and personally it doesn't happen overnight, but by coming back to it week after week i've started to understand myself better and started to create goals for my future self.
