The process of achieving our goals is made up of hundreds of incremental steps. How can you make sure you stay on track with all those steps? Jim says that the best way to stay on track is to literally write down your activities on a day-to-day basis. He calls this getting the most FROM the day.
By keeping a written record of your life, YOU STAY ACCOUNTABLE. You're able to REVIEW and REFLECT. You can see what worked and what didn't work. You can squeeze more value and lessons from the day that you can use to be better and do better in the future.If you haven't listened to the video above, please do. It's amazing. Below, you can see how I've illustrated the fantastic points that Jim Rohn shares:
CHOOSE THE ALL
Earn all you can
Make all the friends you can
Read as many books as you can
Develop as many skills as you can
See as much as possible
Do as much as possible
Make as much of a fortune as possible
Give away as much as possible
How do we "Choose the All"? By doing the best we can. How do we do the best we can? By reflecting on our activity so that we can always be improving it. How do we reflect on our activity? By keeping a written record of it.
And now for the golden question: How do we keep a written record of our activity in the most effective and efficient way possible?
Well, for me, I have been putting all this into practice by using my Life Binder on a near-daily basis. It's been by my side for the past 5 years and has helped me develop an awareness around my goals and my progress that I never had before.
To help you experience what I mean, I've taken some of the best bits of my Life Binder and put it into a single-page FREE printable that you can download HERE (no subscription required). Use it to PLAN, DO, and REVIEW your performance each week. You're going to feel amazing as you put it to work and revisit it every day. Hmm, I think my next post will be a video on how I use it myself! :)
If you like the printable, check out its family - the Ultimate Life Binder - a whole kit of printables designed to help you DO THE BEST YOU CAN and CHOOSE THE ALL. I know you'll LOVE it. :)
Here's what some people are saying about the Ultimate Life Binder:
I love the simplicity of the design and look forward to staying organized and on track in 2016 thanks to the Life Binder. Thank you! - Katie
EVERY Year I spend days/weeks/months searching for the right planner. Each year I'm disappointed because the one I found fails to meet my planning needs. Finally though, I found what suits me! - Lameisha
The printables were exactly as I wanted, simple, elegant and will hopefully prove to be an effective tool in helping to organise my life in 2016 and work out what my priorities are. I feel that the item is competitively priced and my correspondence with the seller was very efficient and courteous. - Karen
