Key Ideas

Create Successful Habits

If you’re aware of negative habits, replace them with affirmative ones. Continue your new habit until it becomes second nature. Phase-out the old habit by replacing it with a NEW, empowering habit.

Be Accountable To Someone

Being accountable allows an impartial observer to assess your work. It is advisable to work with people who have walked your path or who have had similar experiences. 

Alternatively, someone who is completely unrelated to your interest may also serve as a watchful eye as they offer an unbiased perspective.

Focus On Smaller Victories

Focussing on smaller victories along the way gives you the self-confidence you need to forge ahead. 

You might stumble upon setbacks along the way during the pursuit of smaller goals that will serve as valuable lessons since they allow you to iron out the creases before pursuing the larger goal. 

Develop An Insatiable Hunger

Discover the reason for pursuing your goal. Why do you want it? Who will you become once you’ve attained it? What will life look like when you’ve reached your goal?

When you develop an undying commitment to achieve a goal, roadblocks and failures are merely speed humps instead of stop signs.

Goal setting gives focus

Life is designed in such a way that we look long-term and live short-term. We dream for the future and live in the present. 

Setting goals provides long-term vision in our lives.

Practical goal setting
  • Evaluate and reflect. Regularly write down where you are right now, and if you are happy with your current level of satisfaction.
  • Define your dreams and goals. What do you want? Schedule some quiet “dream time” and think about what really thrills you. Then prioritise those dreams.
  • Make your goals S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-sensitive)
  • Have accountability. Find someone to hold you accountable to your goals.

The Dip
Across language learning, company building, and any kind of creative project, there is a dip. The Dip is the long stretch between beginner’s luck and real accomplishment.
Extraordinary benefits accrue to the tiny minority of people who are able to push just a tiny bit longer than most.
The Start before the Dip
In any goal that has to be accomplished, there is a Start. It usually gets overlooked, as it's always there. 
The Start is a much bigger problem since you can’t reach The Dip if you don’t get through The Start, and many more people fantasize about doing something than actually do it and give up.
