Every morning my 5 year old son gets up eagerly waiting to find out what shaped chocolate will be in his advent calendar today.
Having things to look forward to really drives our behaviour and motivation. Many people wait until New Year to set outcomes (and then often forget). NLP focuses on outcomes and how to achieve them.
Why not take a little time right now to get out a piece of paper and write out your outcomes.
Start with big dreams – spend 15 minutes and write down any crazy dreams you have – things for the distant future.
Now focus on the next 3 years – what do you want in the next 3 years?
Now the next year – what do you want over the next year?
Now do the same for 6 months, and then a week.
Finally what actions can you take today to start to make these dreams reality?
