To Do List



Did you achieve all your goals this year? Did you set any? Did you get things done? If so, what steps did you take to make them happen?


Yes you read that right. Steps.


You don’t get to the top of the ladder without climbing the steps. But sometimes we focus so much on what’s at the top, that we lose sight or motivation to get there.


There are many options to staying on track as well as keeping track of your progress.


I’ve never been a big fan of simple to do lists. They can get cluttered. And I don’t like vision boards, they just focus on the end result. I forget about phone notes. So what do I do.


I use an action board. It’s pretty much just a big visual to do list. But it works for me.


Action Board


I call it SWIFT. Study the picture above and you will get the idea


It consists of 5 Categories.


Social – This is any potential money makers. Hobbies/ Websites/ Contacts/ etc…


Work – This is anything that is bringing you money RIGHT NOW! Your job/ business/ etc..


Inner – Self Help, Mindset, and family. Whether it’s reading books, watching documentaries, spending time with family, going to church, etc. This is something that helps your inner self and makes you feel good.


Financial – This is your money issues. If you have a budget this is where you make sure you are following it. Check your savings and make sure you are paying off your debts.


Take Care Of – This is your physical goals. Your workouts, your diet, supplements, etc.



Personal Action Board
This is the actual action board i use.



I set 6 goals weekly in each category and don’t set new ones until they are all done. That’s 30 small goals a week. It sounds like a lot but it really isn’t.


I focus on one goal per category each day. 5 things to get done each day that make progress. Some are small and take less than 5 minutes. Could be a simple phone call or and email blast. You will find yourself setting up some things you may take for granted otherwise.


1 Goal per day in each category. Have at least 5 or 6 queued up for the rest of the week in each category. If there are interruptions or unexpected consequences, put them in the interruptions section and get those done ASAP! Before moving on.


Once your list is done, REWARD YOURSELF!


There’s no better feeling on a when Saturday comes and your ‘list’ is empty. DONE!


So why not reward yourself?


You will see progress and you will be that much closer to your goals. I guarantee it!!


Until Next Time





How To Stay Motivated

Ready to get things done?


We all have goals. Or at least we should. It’s easy to get motivated, but it’s even easier to get demoralized. Sometimes we can get frustrated that we’re not where we want to be. Or you may be thinking ‘success’ is taking forever. Let me tell you the secret to actually get things done and reach your goals.


Focus on the journey, not the destination.


Sometimes you can get so caught up on the main goal, that you lose focus on the action steps to get there. Do not focus on the desired result, focus on the specific actions that you are taking to get there.


Let me give you an example: Want to lose weight? Don’t focus on how much you want to weigh, focus on your exercise plan and diet. Want to make more money? Focus on what you are doing to make more money instead of focusing on how much money you want.


Make a list of smaller specific goals and achieve as many of them as you can. You will see progress much much faster than when you just focus on the end game. You see progress when you don’t just focus on the result.


When you see progress, such as you losing weight or you income increasing, you tend to stay motivated. It’s very encouraging.


Whether it’s a to do list, a journal, a board, notes; however you want to keep track, Set Goals and Achieve Them. You will always stay motivated.



See you next time
