Take Positive Steps in 2012!

First of all, I want to welcome the many new subscribers that have signed up for this newsletter recently. And a belated HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Are you ready to make some nice changes happen in 2012? This article is a continuation of last month's article titled "Time to Set Some New Years Resolutions", which explained why goal setting is the first key step in making positive change, why it's so important to set goals, and how to set goals. This article continues discussing the process.

Once you set realistic goals, you know what you want. It doesn't matter if they are business, career, or personal goals, the basic principles and action steps are the same. Now you need an action plan, and it needs to be written down!

An action plan is like a cooking recipe. It's 1) a list of things you need to accomplish your goals (some may be physical things, help from others, etc.), 2) a list of steps that you need to complete to get to your end point, and 3) the time each step should be completed.

Doing an effective action plan is difficult for many people, especially if they've never done one before. Many factors need considering. One's personal challenges and limitations can easily get in the way. For example, if someone tends to procrastinate, they may keep putting off writing their action plan, and positive changes may never occur! A little help from the right person may be all that's needed.

Commitment is critical! People make positive changes happen if they really, really WANT them and they COMMIT to doing whatever it takes. Doesn’t it sound simple?

But, the devil's in the details. If it were really that simple, most of us would achieve more of what we want, and be more content.

My goal is to help simplify it for you!
