The top three keys to achieving your goals in 2011

What will you accomplish in 2011?  Have you set your goals yet?

Dr. Gail Matthews of Dominican University conducted a study and some research on the subject of goal setting.  Here are her conclusions:

Conclusions:
1.    The positive effect of accountability was supported: those who sent weekly progress reports to their friend accomplished significantly more than those who had unwritten goals, wrote their goals, formulated action commitments or sent those action commitments to a friend.
2.    There was support for the role of public commitment: those who sent their commitments to a friend accomplished significantly more than those who wrote action commitments or did not write their goals.
3.    The positive effect of written goals was supported: Those who wrote their goals accomplished significantly more than those who did not write their goals.

On Wednesday, January 5, 2011 I will be announcing the details of my personal goal setting workshop in which we will use the above principles to achieve goals in 2011.  If you would like more information about the workshop, send me an e-mail at phil@philhardwick.com.
