To Do: Write down your goals

Today’s To Do Item:

Write down your goals.

Committing your goals to writing can have a massive impact on the likelihood of their accomplishment. And it’s free. Just do it.

“The average stream of consciousness includes about 1,500 thoughts a minute. If your goals are only in your mind, they are invariably jumbled up, vague, confused, contradictory and deficient in many ways. They offer no clarity and give you no motive power. You become like a ship without a rudder, drifting with the tides, crashing into the rocks inevitably and never really fulfilling your true potential.” — Brian Tracy

They’ll never know it if you never show it

Please support your favorite content providers.

Just a reminder that the people who create pages and content that you like will never know it if you never show it.

It seems a shame not to show your support or say “thank you” when it is as easy as clicking a button, leaving a comment, or sharing something.

If you simply consume “free” content — that someone put time into finding or creating for you — and you never show appreciation, express encouragement, or provide feedback, there is a greater chance that your content provider will eventually disappear for lack of support.

And while there will always be more free content on the ever-hungry Internet, many people, pages, and blogs are not given the chance they deserve to truly shine because content consumers take them for granted.

Many people, pages, and blogs who want to attract a larger audience without spending a fortune on advertising, resorting to annoying self-promotion, or who aren’t directly connected to someone willing to promote them, can only do so effectively with your help.

All of the pages, blogs, and even commercial sites that haven’t reached the tipping point appreciate your support much more than you probably imagine.

They’ll never know it if you never show it.

Share and Tell Wednesday

Your mission, if you choose to accept it…

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to find an opportunity to give someone *sincere*, positive praise today.

Or tell someone’s boss or manager that the person who helped you (or others) is doing a great job.

Or write a positive review for a product or establishment that you appreciate.

Accentuate the positive.

A mission of kindness

Your mission today, if you choose to accept it, is to perform a random act of kindness.

Pay for someone’s toll or coffee.Put some change in an expired meter (*Note: may be illegal in some states). Share an artist’s work. Make a donation to a cause or help promote it. Help fund a Kickstarter project. Have flowers delivered to a receptionist. Let the Wookie win.

Or just make a stranger smile.

One’s education never ends

Your mission, if you choose to accept it today, is to learn something completely new.

I mean it, go learn something you didn’t know before today. Even just a simple, interesting fact is enough.

And then, if you want to be even more awesome, share that fact with someone.

A mission beyond your comfort zone

Your mission, if you choose to accept it today, is to get out of your comfort zone at least once.

Take a new route. Favor your other hand. Try to appreciate a song from a genre of music you don’t like. Initiate a conversation with a stranger…

Small or large, whatever it is, just do something differently today and gain a new perspective or insight.

Stretch yourself.

And have an awesome day.

*Disclaimer: You accept full responsibility for the outcome of any missions you choose to accept.
