New Year’s Resolutions

OK, I know it’s only October 14 and New Year’s resolutions are made at the beginning of the new year. But wouldn’t it be great if January 1 rolled around and you had a 78-day head start on self-improvement? Talk about hitting the ground running.

In this spirit I offer you a link to Brian Tracy’s post, “Unlocking Your Productivity.”  Back in my sales days I spent many an hour on the road listening to Tracy’s tapes.  I’ve always found his material to be not just positive, but actually useful in day-to-day life.  Don’t get me wrong.  We can all use a daily dose of positive motivation, but all the enthusiasm in the world is pretty useless if we don’t know what to do when we get out of bed in the morning.

Unlocking Your Productivity” is all about goal-setting.  There’s nothing new about goal-setting, but admit it, you’ve probably filled notebooks with goals and objectives (I know I have) and then stored them away never to be seen again.

We’re living in a unique time.  We face challenges personally and in business that we may never have seen before.  Following Tracy’s advice on setting goals and solving problems will help us survive and even thrive in this difficult economic climate.

The challenge is to get out yet another notebook and follow Tracy’s advice.  But this time, instead of filing our goals away for some future archeologist to find, how about keeping them on our desk, reviewing and tweaking them every day, and actually making something happen.

To sum it up, in the words of the famous shoe-maker,

Just do it!
