If you are still on the fence about your goals for 2021 or you are not used to setting goals, you have come to the right place! In today’s episode of Relentless Growth, Chris walks us through some ways to approach your goals this year so that you can live the life you have always wanted. When setting goals, it is so tempting to get caught up in busy work and limiting beliefs, which is why Chris is a strong supporter of the approach used in The ONE Thing. We hear about this method and why it is so effective in its simplicity. Chris also shares another strategy, where you start at the end, envisioning your goal, and reverse engineer your actions. The third and final model for achieving your goals is for businesses that are looking to soar. Although these are all slightly different ways of getting to your goals, they all emphasize action. If you do not have actionable steps to get to your desired outcome, you are setting yourself up for failure. Remember, small steps lead to massive change, so focus on taking daily steps and have faith they will get you to where you need to be. We wish you well on the year ahead and hope that you’ll join us for the wild ride that 2021 is sure to be!
