Simple, but extremely effective
on February 20, 2011
Think goals are just things you make on New Year's Day and then break by Valentine's? Think again. Goal-setting is a powerful tool, but you need to know how to create goals that are right for you and then map out a path to achieve them. Other goal-setting books that I've read have focused only on making the goals, but this book teaches you not only how to create focused goals, but how to break the larger goals into smaller, more manageable tasks with tangible results; each steps builds upon previous steps until you reach the desired result. In addition, the emphasis on affirmations during the process gives this book a unique aspect that further builds the effectiveness of the method.
I was a skeptic at first, but decided to try creating a goal that addressed my financial security issues. The goal that I had set forth on New Year's Day of finding a job was not happening. Once I used the tools in this book of really focusing in on what kind of job I wanted and why, I was able to create a realistic plan of action, be open to the right kind of opportunities, and get a job that not only will bring in much needed income, but that will fill my soul as well. The positive self-talk from the affirmations were probably the key that gave me the confidence to nail the interview.
Although this book is small, it packs a wallop of useful information that I will use over and over again.
