Memory of a goldfish
I’m one of those people that if you tell me something in passing and I haven’t got a bit of paper to write on I will literally forget in about 30 seconds…
Years ago when I was studying one of my peers would make a point of constantly telling me that I always forget things and over time it use to make me feel stupid.
I thought enough is enough and at the age of 33, I was diagnosed with Dyslexia. My type of Dyslexia plays around with my memory retention. I now make sure that whenever I am due to go away or need to make notes that my little note pad is by my side. I am no longer the Goldfish but “Mr. Organised”.
I love to be creative, and with this, in mind, I invested in a whiteboard and it helps every day to plan or even prepare for something. But nowadays it’s the “Magic Board”.
I write down my goals every month on the board and there is something powerful once you pick up that marker pen and then it touches the board!! Once I see my goals written visually there is a connection I feel pumped!
Too many people subconsciously believe that simply thinking about doing something is as good as actually acting on it. They confuse thinking, deliberation, and analysis with action. Don’t get me wrong: when you’re setting up goals, you should research. You should get enough information so you can make a truly informed decision.
Wherever your focus goes, you will find your energy flows towards it and I cannot emphasize this enough. If you are focused on something, it is then easier to direct your time, energy and commitment to it. Writing down your goals can enable you to then get clear on your focus and what really matters.
Whether it’s a board, paper or even sticky notes setting goals is a personal thing for you and in this day in age, how much time do any of us actually spend time getting to know us?
Think about that I bet if I asked you about one of your friends, family members or even co-workers? You could tell me within seconds something unique about that person or people?
Use a piece of paper or even aboard and not only write goals, give yourself some much needed praise this is your board and let you see your accomplishments and I bet you will feel great.
That’s the beauty of using goals it gives you a sense of purpose and achievement!
We all deserve a little magic in our lives!!
