"The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it." - Chinese Proverb

June is here so now that it is 1/2 way through 2013...it is really time to get serious and set purposeful goals that you can achieve before the end of the year.

It's time to really zone it down, focus and totally commit to taking the necessary action.

All the fun in the world cannot make up for a lack of genuine satisfaction with what you have actually achieved.

The strategy is to identify and commit to clear goals. We need to know what we want to get out of the next hour, the remainder of the day, the rest of the year, the next five years, and the rest of our lives.


All goals should be SMART goals. This acronym means: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely.

SMART goals can be set across all key domains of your life i.e. home, work, recreation. They can be short, medium or long-term goals.

Experienced goal setters will always ask, 'Does this add value to my life?'

It's a great question. It ensures that we are always moving in a valued direction, and that we are setting goals that are healthy for us, which will enrich our lives.

It is important to build both tangible and intangible goals into your life. By ensuring that you are always 'creating' and 'learning' you are remaining fresh and energized.

An achievement focus encourages us to take any opportunity for development and improvement that we see. Achievement brings purpose, meaning and momentum to our life. We feel more confident and self-assured for having achieved...a feeling of satisfaction.

Develop a specific plan to get there, identify the timeline required and put in the immediate steps required to get there and take ACTION.

To excel and achieve your goals, takes a mindset that you believe you will and that you can.

What you can achieve in life is limitless, you are only ever limited by your imagination. The possibilities are endless and you are surrounded in opportunities.

To get more you have to do more and this usually means pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. When you feel a bit uncomfortable that's where you need to be and you just have to keep going and push even harder.

So come on get those goals on track and make 2013 your best year yet... Do something today your future self will thank you for!!
