If you’re like me,  even setting goals can be difficult. I mean, I knew that I had a bit of an issue with commitment but there have been so many things in which I’ve committed to well such as having a good marriage for 20 years, staying sober for 22, etc. so I thought I was done with that ole commitment phobia.  But I realize that is exactly what is going on with me in regards to compiling, editing, re-writing and revising my book.  I need to create a structure for my work replete with days, times and the task for accomplishing my work.

Just like one of my “gem” clients has shared through his process of turning around a family business and getting it back to gold, there is specific work that has to be done for a finite period of time that will require extra effort, time and panache for him to meet and exceed his goal in getting his company up to a place that will enable him to hire talent who can take some of the load off.  It can be hard to set goals and see them through to success when the “seeing through” process may be uncomfortable and require extra effort on top of hard work…but it can be done.  I know that in the past what has helped me set goals and see them through has been to divvy a big  goal up into portions so that I can see improvement, accomplishment and the horizon, one step at a time.

How about you? What goals do you need to set and commit to seeing through today?
