And that is the power of doing things constantly. It’s not like the habit of it. It’s much more than that. It’s part of your life. It’s so melted into your existence that it doesn’t really show up anymore. You can’t say it’s there, but you’re doing it. Just like I eventually drove hundreds of cars (and I mean it, hundreds of them) because it was part of my day to day job.
Simple. You have to CREATE before you can experience.
I set a goal (not so long ago) to move my wife and I to Austin. We are now in the process of realizing that goal. We have movers schedule and, if all goes according to plan, we’ll be in our new Austin apartment around the end of May.
How did I do this? Goal setting.
Well… more to the point… EFFECTIVE goal setting using a technique that I’ve not seen others use. It’s powerful though… and I thought it was worth sharing.

I get it. You’ve created some powerful goals… but then life happens!
Wondering how to keep focused on your goals? Here are a few quick tips:
Review Your Goals: It’s simple… not easy. Every time you review your goals, you are focused on your goals. That focus, even if for a moment, is a very small toward toward programming your subconscious mind. Every review offers an impression… a visualization. With every visualization your brain literally experiences the goal as achieved. The more times you experience something as real, the more real it becomes.
Be Consistent: In my case I review goals 2x a day. Once in the morning and once at night. Is this enough? Too little? Too much? Who cares?!? Consistency is more important than how many times you review goals. If you decide mornings are enough… they are! Consistency builds habits. If you practice consistency, you’ll program yourself to begin thinking about certain things at certain times. Once habit takes over you’ll begin to do this on autopilot and focusing on your goals becomes effortless. Focus becomes a part of who you are!
Create Exciting Goals: Let’s face it. If you have boring goals that aren’t worth getting excited about… why would you want to force yourself to focus on them? Sounds like common sense, but many people create incredibly boring goals. Those goals may have been exciting at the moment they were written, but after reviewing them over the days, weeks and months… they can lose their punch… their kick. SPICE IT UP! If your goals are getting stale, it’s OK to rewrite them in a slightly different way. Give them more detail or describe a different aspect of the same goal. The variety will help to keep your attention where it needs to be.
