How to win everything with just a note in your pocket

What are your goals now?

I know it's like curing in church to say “It's nice that summer is finally over, ”but I do it anyway.

The reason is simple: It's exactly at this time of the year most of us have the most energy. We feel refreshed and ready to grab hold of the big tasks, we want to change and improve.

But most of us (me, that is) need clear goals to avoid just putting out fires.

How to do:

1. Take out a sheet of paper and a pen and write down everything you need to accomplish before Christmas.
2. Fold the note nicely and put it in your pocket - then let the note follow you from garment to garment during the fall so you will always be reminded of your goals when you find the note in your pocket.
3. At the bottom of the note, type what you get if you reach your goals. (It's your reward, it's very important.)

It's a piece of cake having my own boss in my pocket that always prioritizes me!
