I have been thinking I will be blogging or writing a post on a day to day basis. The problem with us is that we just keep thinking and so I created a challenge for myself. This was after I stumbled upon the most prolific Slide show ever which was a revelation in so many ways.
First it actually taught the power of writing your goals, and if you may have the audacity to share it with the world, I would like to use the word here, because its a commitment with the world not to yourself that you keep changing the goal post, it would make a lot of sense and also give you enough pressure to deliver on those promise.
So when you write the goals and make it public you take the whole responsibility and put yourself on a mirror and then align it to your activities accordingly the time and place factor for you to achieve your goals.
To make the pursuit worth it put it a place where you often see yourself. May be the mirror or your closet to keep yourself reminding about it. You can even make it the facebook cover page till it is realized. I can sense your irritation if any, this will help you look at only that wherever you are.
You remember the birds’ eye view from Arjuna’s perspective. He saw only the eyes not the whole bird neither the trunk it was perched on nor the wings or the feathers. He was focused so much and it meant a lot in terms of achieving the target of hitting the bird without fail.
So when we make it public, there is a big chance for us to be aware that we have made our self bare and we would be vulnerable if we don’t even try. Here’s another catch, even those who make their goals public have attained 70% or so and 70% is a big number mind you given that we have had enough goals and moved many a goal posts according to our whims and fancies simply because we never told anyone.
There is this phrase we are getting used to; ie no new year resolutions right. That once in a while is fun, but when it comes to personal goals it need not be yearly. It can be monthly, weekly and daily then you can afford not have a yearly resolution.
On a day to day basis we need to contribute to the goals. Say to achieve 30 posts daily there is a need to assign a time to finalise everyday’s post. Thats a challenge that will be analysed and worked upon. You cannot copy paste a post for sure then there’s no fun. Anyways its worth a try.
Write down your goals, help yourself to read it loud and better still tell the world you want to do. Never mind even if you don’t make it but don’t let it go untried.
So here’s to a happy writing a goal with a time frame and share it to not just yourself. That would make all the difference. You will win it irrespective of the result for sure.
Its an introspection for you every time you look at the goal and every time you are inching closer to it.
That makes it 29 posts to go! #Experimentsuccessfullystarted
