Step 3 ~ RULES FOR SUCCESS
Yesterday’s exercise probably wasn’t as pleasant as the previous part of the exercise but that is OK; we can now extract learnings from what you didn’t achieve so that you can ensure you make the next 12 months different.
So we’re now going to identify your ‘Rules for Success’. What I want you to do is go over all of the things you have achieved over the last 12 months and work out what it was that you did during those times that enabled you to succeed.
By going through the goals that you have achieved and also going through the goals that you didn’t achieve you can put together your personal rules for success, the rules that you know you have already proven that if you follow these rules you succeed.
It is a good idea to keep these rules for success somewhere handy, to keep reminding yourself of them. Then next time when things aren’t going the way that you want you can refer to your rules of success. I keep mine pinned above my desk as a constant reminder.
So take some time now to review the previous year and work on your own personal set of rules for success.
What are the rules that if you follow them you succeed?
Then look at the things that you didn’t achieve, what were the rules that you weren’t following that if you had followed them you would have achieved these goals?
- What do you need to start doing?
- What do you need to stop doing?
- What do you need to continue doing?
- What do you need to do more of?
- What do you need to do less of?
- What strengths can you draw on?
- What are your rules for success?
- Where will you put these to act as a constant reminder?
