Hi Ypn’ers! If you are like most people, you are planning to do one of two things for the New Year:
1.) Get motivated and try once again to set a new goal for the New Year, or…
2.) Don’t even attempt it because you have been there, done that, and are tired of setting goals every year only to disappoint yourself by not achieving them.
There are many things that I am not very good at. For example, I have good form but swim at the speed of a sloth in the water. I am also probably the most directionally dysfunctional person you will ever meet. Don’t challenge me on this. I have come to terms with this fact and I accept it. But one thing I have always been very good at is to understand WHY people do what they do, or don’t do what they do. In every circumstance there are specific reasons why we are successful or not, shy or outgoing, look up or look down, speak high or low and so on.
In an effort to not bore you with the psychology of it all, I will just say this: There are very specific reasons why you have or have not hit your goals in the past or why you will or will not going forward. I have the fortune of keynoting conventions for groups all over North America and recently I covered this very topic. If you want to figure out how to set your goals for 2012 and actually achieve them… then enjoy this short clip!
