This might sound like a tedious task, but I promise you, there is science that backs up the reason for taking this action. As you write your goals, ensure you are using the SMART format (Specific, measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time bound). When you write down your goals, write them as if you already accomplished them. Example: If your goal is to lose 10 pounds in a given amount of time, write down “I lost 10 pounds in a given amount of time”. There is a powerful message sent to your brain when using this strategy. Your brain will gear your behavior to make it happen. Plus by writing your goals today, when you look at them in years, you will see you not only reached them, but exceeded them. Write them somewhere you see them every day as many times as possible. Typing them is okay, but physically writing them down is much more powerful. Writing down your goals is a powerful tool that will cost you nothing, but very likely will result in infinite achievement and success when combined with writing a to do list as well.
