Keeping the Goal the Goal

When I was a young teenager I broke my left leg pretty bad. Snapped both my tibia (shinbone) and fibula (calf bone) in half. Broke the ankle at the same time too.

Doctors had to screw a 6 inch plate into my leg and drill a screw through my ankle to join the bones back together. I was in hospital for about a week doped up on morphine. Then on crutches for a few months while the bones healed.

Of course, I continued to eat like a teenage boy and gained about 20 pounds.

At the time I didn't know the first thing about nutrition or how to lose weight. So I was a little chubby all through high school. (You can imagine that was a lot of fun.) When I finally made the decision to lose the weight I started reading everything I could about nutrition, weight loss, and weightlifting.

One of my mentors was Dan John. He's an All-American discus champion, highland games winner, and football strength coach. Real meat-n-potatoes kinda guy.

One of my favourite Dan sayings is "the goal is to keep the goal the goal".

I've coached a lot of people over the years and one of the biggest challenges people face is keeping focused. "I need to find a niche and I want to get better clients and I have to build my team, oh and I need to get some money by Friday".

Let's back up a second and makes things a whole lot easier.

Pick a goal.

One goal.

Write it down on a 3x5 card. Circle it.

Now put the card in front of your keyboard so it's the first thing you see in the morning.

Your job isn't to change your entire business overnight.

It's just to keep the goal the goal. When it's done, set another one.

Whether it takes you a day, a week, or a month to complete that one goal, it doesn't matter.

Focus on one goal at a time and get it done.

You will be surprised at how quickly the results start to compound.

Talk soon,
