Well it's late January now. How are your goals coming? If you're like most people, they're quickly fading into the distance. While it's only been a couple of weeks since they discussed it last, Kurt and Steve re-hash the main components of successful goal setting. If for no other reason than to at least REMIND you that you set some goals a few weeks ago. Accomplishing goals requires YOU to consistently follow up on them, measure your progress, and to be realistic. Other wise you end up like everybody else: your in mid February and things are right back to where they were!
On this episode Kurt and Steve also discuss vision versus worry. When you're setting goals, trying to sell a product, or trying to promote a cause...do you do it out of vision or worry? When it comes to you and your goals, this needs to be done out of vision. Even though it brings on compelling short term emotions, acting out of worry never lasts. Only a positive vision of the future will keep you going when times get tough! Check out the episode for some tips on how to use this on your prospects and your marketing!
