Advice on booking travel… and bucket list ideas – #TravelSkills summary

Most weeks I participate in the #TravelSkills Twitter chat (Fridays, 12pm ET/9am PT, for one hour). They’re always around a topic related to travel, and people share great tips and interesting stories.

4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals – Step 3: Break Barriers and Collect Small Success

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 3: Break Barriers and Collect Small Success. We’ll talk about how to recognize and continue your current progress even if the excitement’s worn off (and even if it doesn’t seem like you’ve made any progress yet). I’m also including ideas for continuing to move toward your goal even when facing challenges. If you haven’t read them already, I recommend catching up on Step 1: Assess and Clarify and Step 2: Plan and Take Action before continuing on to this third step.

Keep reading to learn more about Step 3 and then come back next Tuesday (Jan 31) to read Step 4: Reflect and Celebrate.

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).
