How to achieve your goals

We've all got goals, but how do we make sure we achieve them? Today's guest blog investigates...
There has been lots of scientific research done towards the benefits of something called 'Goal Setting'. Here's a stat that might make you think - you are 80% more likely to achieve your goals if you share them with people.
The reason I bring this up is simple. How many people have their goals written down? Do you see your goals everyday? I get young people I work with to write their goals down and ensure that they are constantly seeing them and acting on them. I use something I made called a 'Goal Setting Contract' the young people write down their goals, say when they are going to achieve them by and then sign and date it. I then keep in contact with them to see the progress they have made.
What three things are you going to have achieved by this exact date in 2013? Write three goals down, make a commitment and promise to yourself and then sign and date it and ensure you see them daily. I have my goals saved on my wallpaper of my phone, my home screen on my laptop and on the wall in my bedroom.
So what do you want to achieve?
