When it comes to staying on track and completing a task, I am the type of person who must write everything down! No matter how minor or major the task is, it gets jotted down, the same goes for all my goals and dreams that I have, everything gets written down. Dominican University in California, did a study on the art and science behind goal setting and found that people who simply write down their goals are 42% more likely to achieve them, how incredible is that! It has to do with how our brain is wired. When we think about our goals, we are using the right hemisphere of our brain and when we write them down we use the left side of our brain, which impacts our logical thinking. When you tap into both sides of your brain with one idea, it’s like tapping into a powerhouse and ideas, plans and strategy begin to unfold.
It's also important that when we write down our goals and dreams that we are consistent, writing weekly if not daily. We must also write from a place of having the goal or dream, not wishing or hoping but having. This opens our subconscious and our mind begins to see the act of accomplishing, which is very powerful force to enhance our drive and ambition.
For the #VOTW, try writing out your goals and dreams, keep a note book on hand and try to do this daily. Watch how your drive and motivation are enhanced, this process requires action and that is brought on by the simple act of writing.
