Do you use the Amy Method of setting and achieving goals?
Not sure? Let’s test it:
- Decide setting goals is the way to go, because, A goal without a plan is just a dream, is a wicked cool quote even though it doesn’t quite fit…but you figure the first step is a realio-trulio goal.
- Decide on Goal, after further analysis, decide it scares the crap out of you, set a more reasonable goal.
- Write it down, really like the way it looks, decide to set more goals.
- End up with 10 goals written in green and purple ink in a nice notebook. It is a beautiful thing.
- Satisfactory sigh.
- Get busy with overflowing toilet (generic life-happening example).
- Occasional memory sparks of goals.
- More toilets overflowing.
- Settle in to life as you know it–not bad.
- Read article with statistic that people who set goals are 80 Bajillion times more likely to achieve those goals if they read them every day, also, if they ACTUALLY have a plan.
- Find written goals, become overwhelmed with making plans for all ten. Decide on three.
- Go about day…forget to make an action plan for each of the three goals.
- AUTHOR INTERUTION: Remember that the whole point of wanting to write a blog about creating a easier, fun, exciting, better life is so I can learn right along with you–I have taken so many wrong turns! I want to share my missteps and discoveries so we all come out on the other side a little better.
- Decide to write post on setting goals…
- So, uh, write goals (not to-do lists, whoops).
- Write (reasonable) action plan.
- Set a timeline with all the goals and the plans.
- Print out and leave on bedside table. And bathroom closet. And purse. Also car.
- Find a GOALS partner! Let them know (that’s kind of key)that they are your goals partner. Check in with them!
So. There you have it on why you should NOT follow the Amy method! Well, the last five are pretty good. The trick is to do it all in one day. A Goals Day! Yay! What’s your number one goal?
