To keep me motivated creatively I often listen to Tony Robbins DVDs.
I regularly do his hour of power morning "pick me up " exercises and usually do his goal setting workshop at the beginning of each year.
I have been doing this for the past seven years.
At the end of each year I list all the things I want to achieve for the following year and pick the top three that I want to achieve within the next year.
Then I go out and take one small step immediately towards the top three goals that I have identified.
Sounds easy doesn't it?
It is easy if I follow through.
The trick is to follow though.
I intend to follow through fort the next year with the aid of this blog.
It would be great to do a review a year from now to see I have accomplished.
It would be even better for me if you wrote back to me and told me what you intend to accomplish creatively.
Lets make it into a blog game.
How about you write to me and tell me what you are going to be doing in the coming year, creatively and tell me NOW?
Goal setting and reviewing help me to keep focused and on track, especially during times of recession, when it's easy to feel overwhelmed.
As Anthony says, take some time out to sit down and focus on all the things you have accomplished during the past year, and give yourself a giant pat on the back.
