A plant and a goal will die in the dark. Goals need sunlight to make them grow.
Get your goals out in the open. Give them plenty of open air by sharing them with all who will support you.
Goals that are open thrive because they:
- Create accountability
- Get attention
- Serve as a reminder
- Create excitement
Goals hidden in the dark die because they:
- Are neglected
- Become silent
- Morph into an unhealthy fungus
A great idea to get your goals out in the open is to place them in places where they can always be seen.
- Your blog
- Office desk
- With your mentor
- Give a copy to friends and family
- Print them on a business card and hand them out
It needs to be very well known what results and goals you are striving to achieve. Even though you may “tell” someone what you expect to achieve, the written word is still more powerful.
Therefore, make sure that the goals you are hoping to achieve are posted and on public display.
Also, make sure that you acknowledge others who share their goals with you. A little nourishment goes a long way!
