Goals

Inspired by Jack Daly who publishes his yearly goals, I’ve decided to do the same.

I personally like to use Tim Ferriss’s Dreamline tool (Excel Spreadsheet – 448KB)  to set goals for each quarter (90 days).  I set up to 5 goals for HAVING, BEING & DOING. Plus I like to document annual goals at the start of each year.

My process:
Every quarter, I set my goals, show my ‘council’ — two friends who I trust — and at the end of each quarter sit down with each of them to evaluate how I’ve gone.   I do the same for them. We usually do this ‘off-site’ as an excuse to get away!

GOALS 2013:

The big goals for 2013 are:

  • Write and publish a book with Toby [Business]
