Tracking what you do could be the key to success

What are you doing each day to take you closer to your goals?

What are you doing each day to sabotage your progress?

Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is we’re doing right or wrong when it comes to achieving our goals, and often we’re unaware of what we’re doing wrong if things aren’t happening for us!

Yesterday I came across a great tip to help you to work this out!

It’s called “Tracking”.

Tracking involves writing down each and every thing you do, positive or negative, that relates to your goal.

That’s it!

Sounds simple right?

Alright, let me break this down for you, so you’re clear about what I’m talking about here. Let’s say you want to lose weight. Here’s what you would do:

  1. Grab a small notebook which you can carry with you EVERYWHERE.
  2. Every single time you put something in your mouth, write it in your notebook (it might also help to note the time that you ate too).
  3. Every single time you exercise, write it in your notebook.
  4. Every single time you skip exercise in order to do something less active, write it in your notebook.
  5. Go through your notes every day and highlight the positive things you did to move you towards your goal, and also the negatives.
  6. Count how many negatives you have. Aim to have less of those tomorrow!

You can apply this method to anything. If you want to achieve a high mark in a course you’re doing, or you want to reduce debt, or you want to improve your sales, anything! Apply this to anything that requires that you do something every day to get you closer to achieving it.

I’d love to hear how you go with this process! :)
