Hard-wired for Success
Most of us are familiar and maybe even comfortable with setting short-term goals—losing 10 lbs. by my cousin’s wedding in July, saving money every month for a trip to Yosemite next summer—you get the picture. But, what if I told you that setting long-term goals is what really sets us on the path to life-long success?
In a recent psychological study conducted by Alberta School of Business, researchers made a remarkable discovery – once we set a long-term goal, our subconscious mind will never “erase” it (www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/08/110826192433.htm). Our brains are hard-wired to pursue our long-term goals! The key phrase is “once we set a long-term goal.” As we mentioned yesterday, the first phase of setting a goal is writing it down. Today’s tool helps you do just that very thing. If you have any questions or feedback, please contact us by subscribing to this blog.
