Four quick tips to help you get the momentum rolling FAST!!!

Sometimes when I’m working to get back in the groove after some time off I spin my wheels trying to get the momentum rolling. So, in case you’re experiencing some of the same, here are four quick tips to help you get the momentum rolling FAST!!!

 

Here’s what to focus on right away to get your momentum rolling fast…

  1. Get focused! 

Make sure you have a clear goal/objective to accomplish. For this time of year I steer my clients toward an objective they can accomplish by the end of the year. It’s like the final sprint at the end of the race. I know it sounds simple, but too often I get blank stares from people when I ask them what their goals are. Pick a target! Get focused! Play big!  Go for it!

  1. Create a reward!

For gosh sakes, create something exciting and worth playing for. Don’t just set a goal that makes you work harder. Work toward something important and when you reach it treat yourself to something awesome. Your goals need to include more than “getting stuff done.” I’m talking a real prize. Play for a goal like if you hit your target you take the family on a special trip for the Holidays, or plan to buy something you’ve always wanted. Give yourself something to get excited about then GO GET IT!!

  1. Identify 3 to 5 key success actions. 

This is a must do!! The trick to reaching goals is to move them from the future to the present by taking specific, deliberate, and consistent actions right now. So, identify the 3-5 actions you must take daily that will get you to your goals. Keep them simple though, don’t get complicated. I suggest setting aside specific time each day to take these steps. 

  1. Track your progress. 

Reaching goals takes specific attention. You must be on purpose, you must stay focused, and you must make adjustments along the way. How will you know if what is working without tracking your efforts? Believe me, you’d be shocked how many people don’t even remember what they had for breakfast let alone what they did throughout the week. Track your key actions. Do it daily. Review it weekly with your coach and commit to making performance adjustments each week. 

 

Follow these four steps. They are not hard. You can do them quickly. Setting up this whole process can take you less than 15 minutes and you’ll be on track moving forward and building momentum in no time AND you’ll be playing for something that will be really awesome to achieve.
