The eighth secret
The eighth secret is to remember this process is about creating a vision versus setting goals. Goal setting comes later. If you have heard me present, “Removing Your Roadblocks To Your Success?”, you will have heard me state that vision is far more important than goals.
I’m suggesting that this process right now is about vision versus goals and I am finding that the notion of goal setting is a hard habit to break.
As recent as my December 6, 2006 Blog I wrote the following about goals and now I am suggesting there is a better way:
I worked on my goals for 2006 on Monday, December 4, 2006.
One of the goals is:
– Prospect Speaking to associations and companies via Folios, E-Mails & Postcards to Speak at 35 sponsored Financial Advisor association and company events in Canada and the USA in 2007
On Tuesday, December 5, 2006, a very recognizable centre on influence invited us to present our Speaking Folio for consideration for the most significant Financial Advisor Public Speaking Event in the USA in 2007.
I’m laughing at myself right now because I’m noticing a typo, “goals for 2006” instead of 2007 which has since been corrected. It is no wonder that we got the call about the USA Financial Advisor Public Speaking Event the very next day.
Please understand that this writing is a Work-In-Progress of my own development at the same time as I share this with you.
