How to accomplish your goals faster!

By Darren Barr-Engstrom


The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) released the following statistics on goal completion:

  • Of people who consciously decide to set a goal, 25% achieve their goal.

  • Of people who decide when they will do it, 40% achieve their goal.

  • Of people who plan how they will do it, 50% achieve their goal.

  • Of people who commit to someone else they will do it, 65% achieve their goal.

The power of coaching lies here…If you commit to someone else that you will do something, you are more likely to complete your goal. This is where your own personal or business coach can help you reach your goals and what’s truly important to you.

The first step in any journey is knowing where you are heading.

If you are serious about accomplishing your top goals for the year, call or email today to set up a free coaching consultation to see what coaching can do for you.

Client Success Story:

"When I decided to run for political office as a city councilor, I was running against someone who was twice my age with years of experience on me. Now from the outside looking at the situation, you might have thought that I was going to lose for sure; the odds were stacked against me. However, I made a commitment that I was going to win. You knew that it would be easy to go back on my commitment and not try so hard when the going got tough if I only made that commitment to myself. So you had me write down on a piece of paper, “I intend to do whatever it takes to win my city council election by a 2-1 margin.” I was not only going to win, I was going to win by a large enough margin, that no one would question that I won the election fair and square. You had me sign and date my intention and mail it to those whose opinion really mattered in my life. I was on the hook, and made a committment that I wasn't about to let myself out of. Now there were times during the campaign that I wanted to give up, and just throw in the towel, but I knew that I had made a commitment to myself and to others that I would do whatever I could to win the campaign. This commitment was tested on the rainy days that it would have been easier to skip campaigning door to door. You reminded me of my committment and why I was doing what I was doing. With your help I outlined and carried out my success strategy which had me speaking to hundreds of people and calling the voters in my district to ask for their support even when it felt like I was stepping out of my comfort zone. My campaign team saw how committed I was, and how hard I was working, and put in as much effort as I did. Ultimately, I did win the election, and the funny thing is that I won exactly by a 2-1 margin. So it just goes to show, dream big, write your goals down, and then work your butt off to get there, and you will accomplish far more than you ever imagined possible."
