How to turn great ideas into great results

Strategy 4: Set goals and track progress

If you want to build momentum and credibility, win over the doubters, and ensure that you're having a positive impact, setting goals and tracking progress is vital.

In my latest article, I discuss the value of doubters, the importance of problem definition, the benefits of "anti-goals", and how to set goals and track progress to ensure we can turn our great ideas into great results.

Obstacles are those frightening things you see when you take you eyes off your goal.

Quick bite:

When facing a huge task or seemingly impossible goal, we can get paralysed. One way to get moving again is to ask ourselves "What is the simplest step I can take right now that will move me in the right direction?". We aren't trying to complete the task or achieve the goal, just take one good step.
Hat-tip to Greg McKeown and his excellent new book 'Effortless' for inspiring this quick bite.
