SETTING GOALS AND ACHIEVING SUCCESS
I have been a member of Michael Hyatt’s Platform University for several years now. For those who do not know about Michael, today he styles himself as a virtual mentor, whose mission is to help high achievers win at work and succeed at life. In his previous life, he was the Chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, the 7th largest trade book publishing company in the U.S. He is the author of a number of books, several of which landed on the New York Times bestseller list.
Among his other talents, his blogging expertise and willingness to share puts him at the top of my “go to” list. In early January I began reading about another program of his titled 5 DAYS TO YOUR BEST YEAR EVER. His approach to goal setting incorporates the most reliable methods, including the SMART formula (specific, measurable, actionable, risky, and time-keyed). Then he takes the process to a whole new level, incorporating things I typically did not ever associate with setting and achieving goals.
I decided to test this approach, bought the program, and initiated goals in each of the categories he describes. It is mid-February and I am amazed at the results I am achieving (I have been using the goals approach to business and life for many years). His workbook makes fast work of recording information and the resources he makes available are rock-solid.
Incidentally, I read a number of the testimonials from students, many of whom have repeated this program a number of times. While the program is closed now for this year, I invite you to do several things:
- Check out his web site: michaelhyatt.com
- Get on his mailing list (this one is worth it)
- Mark your calendar for mid-December 2017 for the opening of the next edition of 5 DAYS TO YOUR BEST YEAR EVER. You will be glad you did.
