- Find a GoalBuddy. This is the most important step. Imagine you and your friend Peter are goal buddies. Your goal buddy is sort of an accountability partner for goals;
- You call or meet your goal buddy each week for 20 min. (e.g. Sunday afternoon or Monday morning);
- Let’s say you have vision goals for your health and fitness, relationships, etc. but we will take just one – a financial freedom goal as an example;
- You’ve told your buddy about your goals and why they are important to you;
- During the weekly goal buddy call (or meeting) you choose only one next action for each goal that you commit to complete next week;
- You take advantage of the compound effect of small steps – only one next action per week;
- Imagine. After only one year, you would have completed 52 tasks towards achieving your financial freedom goal. (or any other goal);
- Next weeks call you start by telling your buddy what you completed from the previous week;
- Sometimes you have not completed all tasks (happens more often in the beginning). In this case, your buddy does not judge or blame you. Your goal buddy just asks questions – Why? What did you learn? How can you do it better next time?
- Then you switch roles and you help your buddy;
- This happens every week. In a couple of months you gain more clarity about your goals and confidence that you can really achieve the dreams you have;
- Optional 🙂 Share this system with your friends, so that we can achieve our mission – much more people to live the life of their dreams.
I don’t know how to say it more loudly. This is simple but it just works!
