Happy New Year! A Recommendation

BarroMetrics Views: Happy New Year! A Recommendation

Happy New Year, guys and gals!

The time of year when we form our resolutions – resolutions that are honoured more by their breach. One of the reasons we don’t attain our resolutions is because we don’t manage ourselves – we ‘don’t manage our time’.

If you fall into this category, I may be able to help……

……On New Year’s Eve, I attended a promotional webinar by Paul Evans on goal achievement and self-management.

I signed up for the course because it is a great course: lots of new info, templates and a robust, integrated process. Best of all, you can sign up for the 5 Stone Course and software for US$20.00.

That’s right $20.00! Fab value.

So, if you are looking for a way to keep your New Year resolutions, have a squiz at http://launchyouryear.com/

Here is something of great value. By the way, I am not affiliated  in any way with the recommendation. I am passing it on because I think it is great value. Open only till end of Jan 2, 2015.

  2. Hi Ray,

    Happy New Year!

    Thank you for the recommandation, bought it!

    I have a question, as I browse the blog archives I notice that during 2010 you ran some videos exploring NOT ideas. I can’t find any links to the videos/forums. Are they still available somewhere? I think video examples of the application is of great help to NOT people. Thank you!

  3. Thanks for sharing Ray. Working my way thru it.

    My view is that we need to be careful about the goals we set and maybe goal setting has limitations. I feel it is a balancing act (like most things in life).

    There has been a lot of research into goal setting and its effectiveness.

    Some useful links for starters:

  4. Hi Chris

    Thank you for the comment.

    I agree there has been much research, especially since end 2012. The post-2012 information changes much of the pre-2012 landscape.

    In my view, the articles quoted have info superseded by the new discoveries. I did not watch the youtube reference so my comments below are limited to the articles.

    Indeed the attachment problem raised in Pavlina’s article is now shown not to be just a problem encountered in goal setting but to life in general.

    And, the thrust of Williams’ article, that goal setting alone is insufficient, is unlikely to meet with dissenters open to the new research.

    I am a big believer in the path of mission, vision, goals, action plans, habits and routines to get me to where I want to go.

    But like most things in life – we need to keep up with recent developments.
