Henna Inam writes for Forbes about one quick exercise you can do in order to maximize your chance of meeting your goals. Ask yourself the four following questions, as taken from the book Immunity to Change:
- What is the goal you’re committed to?
- What are you “doing” and “not doing” instead?
- What may you also be committed to?
- What assumptions are you making that keep you from your goals?
If you answer those questions honestly, you will likely be left with a new set of assumptions about how to achieve your goal. You need to use those assumptions to create a fresh list of executable actions and experiments. If this does not give you that boost you need, well, maybe you’re just helpless?
