4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals – Taylor Jacobson’s Story: “Appropriately Scary Goals”

goal-achievement-series

This is part of the 4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals series, a walk-through of the process I use to accomplish many things throughout the year. I’m also highlighting stories from people who’ve accomplished big goals in their life or business.

Today, Taylor Jacobson shares why having a clear goal is crucial to motivation and prioritization. He’s currently working on Focusmate, the social network for productivity. Taylor’s a four-time founder, behavioral science expert, and Forbes Coaches Council member who’s consulted to well-known eight- and nine-figure startups. Using themes from behavioral science, Focusmate eliminates procrastination by giving users human presence and accountability at any time for any task through a video-based virtual coworking experience.

Check out past posts in the series to read more about clarifying your goal or creating a plan, and be sure to leave a comment about your experience.

The four steps each also have worksheets that help you walk through this process. If you want them, be sure to answer Yes!! on that section on the Insiders signup form (if you’re already signed up, you can update your profile by using the same email you used before).

4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals – Step 2: Plan and Take Action

goal-achievement-series

This is a continuation of the 4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals series, a walk-through of the process I use to accomplish many things throughout the year. I’m also highlighting stories from people who’ve accomplished big goals in their life or business.

Today is Step 2: Plan and Take Action. We’ll go through a process to define all of your action steps, and ensure you don’t miss something obvious. I’ll also help you create a timeline (even if you’re not a “schedule person”) and find the right person to share your goal with. Then, you’ll use your plan to get started on the goal! If you haven’t read it already, I recommend catching up on Step 1: Assess and Clarify before continuing on to this second step.

Keep reading to learn more about Step 2 and then come back next Tuesday (Jan 24) to read Step 3: Break Barriers and Collect Small Success.

The four steps each also have worksheets that help you walk through this process. If you want them, be sure to answer Yes!! on that section on the Insiders signup form (if you’re already signed up, you can update your profile by using the same email you used before).
