Someday in the distant future, 15, 20, 30 years from now..
Considering the goals you have set and working backwards, imagine it is 20 or 30 years from now. Write down all that you think you would have done in order to reach your goals.
- What habits?
- What efforts?
- What help did you enlist?
- What skills did you acquire?
Now, sort that list, chronologically. Imagine which of those things would have been implemented 30 years ago, which would have been implemented 20 years ago, then 10 years, 5 years, 3 years, 1 year, 6 months, 3 months, 1 month.
This exercise helps you take small bites and feel less overwhelmed by large or intimidating goals. By moving backwards on our life's timeline, it seems to break the process down so you can see where and how simple it is to get started now.
Time and organization
Start the day:
Wake up, drink a glass of water, stretch meditate, review your values, affirmations and goals. Start the day with what gets you on track. Doing this keeps you laser focused on what you are trying to accomplish and helps you stay in line with the values that nourish you!
It has been stated by many of the top experts that the 50/10 rule is the most productive way to manage time. This means 50 minutes of work and a 10 minute break, to stretch, refresh, hydrate, etc. This helps reduce burn out and keeps us fresh for any task at hand.
End of day:
It is wise to revisit the day, and the choices we make. It allows us to consider if we are still on track or give us a chance to figure out what we can do to get back on track, if needed. This is not a time to dwell on mistakes or shortcomings but rather see areas you could have improved or made different decisions for more favorable outcomes. If you find yourself recalling a moment like that from your day, simply relive it with any modifications you would make next time to have that more favorable outcome. This will store a positive memory and prep you better for if a similar situations arises in the future.

Vision Boards and the Law of Attraction
Visualization and Vision Boards are some favorite tools in goal achievement!
If you haven't heard of "The Secret", I recommend you find a copy of the book or DVD. You may even find it to stream on Netflix or for free on YouTube. In it, Visualization and Vision Boards are discussed (and so much more!)
Creating your own vision board is fun and easy. You can make a physical or digital version. All you need to do is locate images of things you love, things you aspire to have, things that represent what you would have when you reach your goals and either paste them on a poster board to display or create a slideshow of these images on your computer.
Examples of vision board images:
- Couples, Romance
- Vacation Spots (or vacation homes)
- Certificates or Diplomas
- Affirmation, Poems
Grab old magazines, books, travel brochures, property listings, etc and start cutting and pasting
