As a high achiever, you know that truly awesome, hard-won accomplishments only happen as a result of thoughtful self-reflection, planning and focused effort.
Measuring your progress is an important part of living a purposeful life.
I started writing down my goals when I was 17, and now, I have about 100 pages in a binder. I look at it almost every single day. consistently, I review the set goals and I have successfully accomplished 95% of them over the years.
What made this possible?
See! there is a real, affirming power in documenting dreams and keeping an inventory of successes.
I am also used to writing down my current goals and put copies of them everywhere. I mean every where like my briefcase, my car, my bathroom, my closet, my phone, I even see them in sleep. This caused a constant renewal of my purpose. Each time I see them, and I find myself getting off track, I take them out and look at them again, realigning my focus and activities with the results I want.
This would make you live a purposeful life.
