By now, you guys probably know that I'm a compulsive goal maker. I've got aesthetically pleasing goals hanging on my walls, I've got a list of new things I want to try over on that sidebar, and my advocacy for the Pomodoro app verges on awkwardly zealous.
And for me, there's a special power that comes with writing down my goals.
Like, with a pen! With my hand! How novel! And apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks so. A Stanford University Study found that when people write down their goal, it increased the probability of them achieving it by over 70%. Seventy percent!
And even more powerful? Sharing those goals with you guys so I have to follow through with them.
To that end, I'm teaming up with Clare of Checks and Spots fame to share our monthly goals for Write to Change.
Here's the deal:
Write down just one goal for January. It doesn't matter whether it’s a big or small change – it just has to be something you want to achieve by the end of the month.
Then, take a photo of it and share what you’ve written on Instagram and tag it with #writetochange or post it on Yes and Yes's page.
By sharing our goals publicly, there’s no hiding. Think of Write to Change as outsourced self-control! When we're accountable we are far more likely to fulfill our goals.
At the end of each month we’ll revisit our goal, reflect on how we went and set a new focus for the coming month.
Join the fun - I can't wait to hear what you guys are going to accomplish this month!
