How to take action with your goals

  1. Choose an action and an attitude that will make the highest contribution toward your goal. The actions are the daily habits that make everything else easier. The attitude is believing that it will work.
  2. Give yourself instructions to follow. Write down what, when and how you'll do it.
  3. Commit your action and attitude to at least 66 days. Studies show it takes about two months to make an action become the new normal.

If you focus on your habits, your goals will take care of themselves.
