You’ve heard all the experts on reaching on goals but one of the best tips I have heard is from Warren Buffet – the man who is allegedly worth over $73B.
He has some credibility for us to listen & learn from.
Welcome to FR3 Minutes For Your Fitness Business with actionable tips this week to reach your personal & professional goals!
In a story, Buffett was speaking with the pilot of his private plane. He said to him surely you don’t want to fly his plane for the rest of his life. He then counseled his pilot in how to turn his dreams into reality in 3 easy steps:
- Write down a list of 25 career goals.
- Circle the 5 highest priority goals.
- Re-read the remaining the 20 goals and then avoid them at all costs!
Buffett said those 20 ‘other’ goals are what distracts you from achieving your top 5 goals. These other 20 will eat into your time, energy, resources and brain space for achieving your top 5 goals.
Imagine having the laser focus on just 5 goals. A goal for each of the following:
- Professional goal;
- Health & fitness goal;
- Relationship goal;
- Financial goal;
- Spiritual goal.
Then establish the actions steps to achieve these goals. Remember you cannot achieve a goal just by thinking about it, you need to write action steps and start doing those actions!
The key for any goal is for it to be a SMART goal when you write it down:
Many of you do this brilliantly with clients and staff. Well make yourself a priority and start your plans.
I love this advice from Buffet and now is the time to target your achievements for this year with some goal setting over the last quarter for 2018.
