Step 1: I would like to invite you to share in the comments section your short-term or long-term goal or goals. Don’t be shy. This is a safe space where judgment is never permitted.
Step 2: After you list your goal, I would like you to list one or more steps that need to be taken to move you toward achieving your goal. Think deeply and choose steps that have been most impacted by procrastination. You might even list why you have been procrastinating. I am a firm believer that affirmation statements are supremely helpful in promoting positive change in our lives.
Step 3: Lastly, please write a commitment statement about how you intend to follow through with the steps you listed. Also, include a way you plan to reward yourself when you take this step. Be as detailed and creative as possible. And, remember to have fun!
Here is one of my goals, steps and commitment statement.
Goal: I really need to renew my passport. I will be traveling oversees later this year and need to have my passport renewed before I leave. My flight and hotel are already booked so this is something that needs to happen soon.
Step(s): The first step that needs to be taken is for me to print out the paperwork to send in the renewal. The second step and third step is to fill it out and then send it in. In my commitment statement I will keep it as simple as possible just to make sure I actually follow through. Here goes!
Commitment Statement: I am committing myself to printing out the renewal paperwork first thing tomorrow. My reward will be a lovely hike with my beautiful lady. Once I print the paperwork I can plan to take the other two steps. The first step tends to be the most difficult!
Ok, now it’s your turn!
Ready? Set. Go!
