“Starting with the proper intention is everything…” Tweet This

There is incredible power when one “begins with the end in mind”. Dr. Stephen Covey’s “Habit #2” from The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. And, that’s exactly where you’ll want to start to create the right habits that will propel you towards your goals. Beginning with your ultimate goal, reverse engineer the outcome by asking what habits and skills you would need to get you there. This is the quickest way to achieve your goal.

In this episode, we tackle the basics of crafting habits that are in alignment with your goals. From the minimum success criteria, targets and frequencies to discovering your deeper “Why?”.

This episode will help you to take inventory, reassess and, if necessary, realign your habits to ensure they are moving you in the right direction. Real, enduring success is cultivated through consistent actions OVER TIME (habits).

You can’t finish what you don’t start. Are you ready to take your first steps?

A few of the things we cover include:

  • Why you need to create a tracking system
  • The magic of setting your bar low
  • The importance of the methodology: tracking periods, target days, frequencies and minimum success criteria
  • The power of beginning with “the end in mind” (your ultimate end)
