Here is an easy idea to keep your goals out in front of you so that you can makes your dreams come true. Most goal achievement gurus will tell you that goals must be written down. Goals that aren’t written down are just wishes, goals that are written become plans.
Why not take this one step further? I think you should write down your goals every day. Oh, not the whole thing, as the saying goes, ain’t nobody got time for that. Just use your password. We all have many passwords that we use to log into our computers, e-mail, Facebook etc. Why not make your password your goal statement?
I have used this tip for years. Here are some examples (not my real passwords, I don’t need my bank account wiped out!) but examples of the types of passwords I have used.
When working on my Ph.D., a huge goal to be sure, the log in for my computer was PHD2008! It was a simple reinforcement of my goal every single day.
When I wanted to learn to sail, my password was Sailorgirl. Dieting? Getfitdontquit. Moving? Madisonbound!
Maybe your goal this year is Grateful2015 or Runwiththewind. Maybe you want to Choosehappiness or Simplify. Maybe you want to Livemy passion or WorkSmarter. Perhaps you would like a cheeky reminder like 2015Goddess or Buyin’aHarley. It is a lot more fun and personal than Tiger12345.
If you haven’t changed your passwords in years, it is probably time. Change them to something that reminds you of your goals.
Live well, Michele
