Jump Start Monday: Increase the accessibility of your goals

Get your week off to a great start with the Day-Timer blog. Each Monday we’re going to feature a new tip to help you gain a more productive week at work and at home.
Today’s tip: Increase the accessibility of  your goals 

How are your goals looking today? Chances are, you haven’t checked them yet. The truth is, most people don’t spend enough time viewing their goals each week, an activity which plays a crucial role in your planning framework.

Try this: This week, make a point to keep your goals readily within reach. Place them in the front of your planner, keep them on a note card in your wallet, tape them to your vanity mirror — whatever will trigger your brain toward remembering your goals.

Here’s why: Increasing the accessibility of your goals keeps them front and center in your mind as you make decisions regarding your time. You’ll make better progress when you’re more conscious of the milestones you seek.

  1. Thanks for the reminder Jeff – it certainly makes a difference when my goals are more visible, and oddly its an easy thing to overlook.

    1. Hi Olwen — I wholeheartedly agree. It’s so easy to get caught up in the morning rush and overlook the important things in our lives.

      Making your goals a visible reminder is a valuable method for staying on-track.

      Thanks for commenting — Jeff

  2. I need some advice on software that will help me transition from my paper daytimer to digital. I’ve been a daytimer user for many years. MY Company currently uses Outlook 2003 and since we are networked, I don’t think I can upgrade to Outlook 2007
