Why Goal Setting is Important for Success
Lead a Life on Purpose. Live a Life by Design.
Does your life have a purpose? Are you living a life by design? We can live our life either by design, or by chance. Jim Rohn, success and business philosopher, famously said,
"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much."
By not setting goals, your goal is simply to give up your life to chances and take whatever life happens to you.
The Key Reason between Success and Failure
Why are some people more successful than others? Why do some people achieve so much in life while others achieve so little?
When you look closely at successful people in business, sports, art, science, politics, etc., one consistent factor which stands out is that successful people set goals and take action to achieve them on a systematic basis.
Earl Nightingale put it this way, "People with goals succeed because they know where they are going. It's as simple as that."
Why You Need a Systematic Approach to Goal Accomplishment.
Achieve More by Doing Less
It's all about results and efforts. With a system in place, you will ...
- focus time and effort on only things that truly matter to your goals.
- know how to motivate yourself when things are tough
- know how to create plans and make consistent progress
Without a working system, your success will simply take longer to arrive, and you will end up achieving less but doing more.
Achieve Success Automatically.
Research in psychology and behavioral sciences has found that there are a few things, such as visualization, regular review, time tracking, goal journaling, etc., if one can consistently and systematically do, he or she will immensely increase the chance of reaching a goal.
When you have a system that automatically guides you to use these goal techniques on a daily basis, imagine how much more success you can achieve in your life!
Introducing GoalsOnTrack, designed to be your ultimate tool to systematically achieve any goal you set. Powered with such a success system, you will truly achieve more and do less.
Keep Goals Organized and Stay On Track.
Why Paper-based and Excel Sheets Don't Work
The major reason that paper-based tool or ExcelSheet system don't work is simply because they are NOT motivating. When your goals become only a little complex, these old-school methods no longer offer you the kind of clarity and dynamic feedback that are crucial to your self-motivation and goal accomplishment.
But this doesn't mean you will have to use complicated software or tools instead. GoalsOnTrack was designed to provide you just the right amount of features that empower you to reach goals, while keeping it as simple and easy to use as a pencil and paper.
Why To-do List and Calendar Don't Work
The ultimate question is not how much or how little you get done. The question is: Are you working on the right things, things that really get you results?
You can be super productive and cross off a hundred items off your to-do list or calendar in a day, but are you anywhere closer to your goals? It's not about getting things done right, but rather getting the right things done.
Keep Goals Organized, Focused on Progress
When you observe people who are successful, from your friends and people at work, to famous people seen in magazine or on TV, do you ever find those people disorganized and out of focus?
Probably not. Why? Because they can't afford to. They have to be organized and stay focused.
We all have only 24 hours in a day. If you want to achieve more and be more, you will have to be super organized and intensely focused on what you want and what you do.
GoalsOnTrack is exactly the kind of system you want to use to achieve such a state of order and focus. Its real power becomes obvious as soon as your goals list grows more than 2 or 3.
Action-oriented Goal Achievement Approach, Benefit: Self-motivation.
To achieve a goal, big or small, the primary thing one has to do is to take action. There is no substitute for that. If you can achieve a goal by not taking action, you aren't really achieving any goals. You are simply watching life happen.
All GoalsOnTrack features are designed to motivate you to take action on your goals. Using this system, you can't make any progress unless you complete a task, or finish a sub goal. In GoalsOnTrack, setting goals means taking action. But the important difference from all other similar products out there is that you just don't take any action, you take only action that can move you forward with your goals.
Built-in Motivation Mechanism
One main reason we fail to achieve a goal is lack of motivation. Without proper amount of motivation, you won't be able to put in the time and effort to take enough action. Why are we unmotivated when we try to reach a goal? No immediate progress. That's the number one reason we get frustrated and lose our motivation.
GoalsOnTrack was designed to sustain and boost your motivation by linking your action, no matter how small, to goal progress, at both sub goal and overall goal levels. By using GoalsOnTrack, whenever you complete a task, you will see (graphically) instant progress on your goal. Once you see the progress, you're naturally motivated to do a next task, and then see more progress. This will launch you into a self-motivation and success achieving cycle that ultimately will propel you to accomplish any goal.
Build Habits to Support Goals and Make Changes
Goals and Habits
Habit is the core driving force behind all achievement and failure, great and small. Habit channels the creative force via repeated action. The reason it's so powerful is because it works at subconscious level. So in order to achieve your goal as quickly as possible, your best bet is to develop enabling and core behavioral changes, or habits, that support the goal.
Build Habits to Make Changes you Need for Goals
GoalsOnTrack Habits Builder helps you track and form good habits, and eventually help you make the changes you need. As you keep track of your habits, the system will feedback to you the strength of the current habits, how much longer it will take to form. It's the only tool that can help you do that. Once enough good habits are fully formed, your success is almost inevitable.

Bonus #4: Power Through Repose
Annie Payson Call
This increase of emotion has not always nervous fatigue as an excuse. Many people have inherited emotional magnifying glasses, and carry them through the world, getting and giving unnecessary pain, and losing more than half of the delight of life in failing to get an unprejudiced view of it. If the tired man or woman would have the good sense to stop for one minute and use the power which is given us all of understanding and appreciating our own perverted states and so move on to better, how easy it would be to recognize that a feeling is exaggerated because of fatigue, and wait until we have gained the power to drop our emotional microscopes and save all the evil results of allowing nervous excitement to control us.
