Internal Goal Work
You can have the best-laid plans and goals, but without the internal work or mental motivation to achieve your goals, reaching your goals is that much tougher. Once you identify your goals you must then make the time to do what it takes to make these goals a reality. As a business consultant's mantra says: “Ideas are only as good as their implementation.” Use the following equations to make your goals a reality.
Time management equals organization. Make room in your schedule to plan, create, file, and otherwise organize ideas and information.
Organization equals energy. The more organized you are, the more energy you have. Organization helps keep you clear-headed and focused, further inspiring you to move forward and achieve.
Energy equals productivity. It is very difficult to produce if you don't have the energy or motivation. Energy is the driving force behind your ability to produce results at work and at home.
Your career is only one important cog in the wheel of productivity. Each cog is dependent on the others to keep running smoothly and with minimal effort. The more cogs that are broken, the more power you need to keep the wheel turning, and the chances of straining the wheel are greater, potentially thwarting your efforts to reach your destination.
Productivity contributes to goals. The more you can produce, the more effectively you reach your goals. Achieving your goals will allow you to find success in all aspects of your life, helping you to find satisfaction with your income, well-being, relationships, and much more. Another benefit of achieving your goals is that, generally, once people hit their goals, they feel confident that they can redirect their energies and reach even higher goals that allow them to stretch even further than they originally thought possible.
