Wishy washy goals no good By HELLEN SWALES, director, Experience Upper Hutt COMMERCE COMMENT Successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do. Highly accomplished people are pretty lousy when it comes to understanding why they succeed or fail. The intuitive answer is that you are born predisposed to certain talents and lacking in others. But setting goals and having a focus certainly helps. Here are a few pointers that anyone can be apply if they want to be successful. Get specific when you set your- self a goal. I will be in bed by 10pm every week night'', leaves no room for doubt. Seize the moment to act on your goals -- decide in advance when and where you will take each action you want to take. Planning will help your brain detect and seize the opportunity when it arises, increasing your chances of success by roughly 300 per cent. Know exactly how far you have left to go -- achieving any goal also requires honest and regular moni- toring. Check your progress fre- quently -- weekly, or even daily, depending on the goal. Be a realistic optimist -- believing in your ability to succeed is enormously help- ful for creating and sustain- ing your motivation. But whatever you do, don't underestimate how difficult it will be to reach your goal. Goals worth achieving require time, planning, effort and persistence -- being ill- prepared for the journey ahead will significantly increase the odds of failure. Focus on getting better, rather than being good -- Believing you have the ability to reach your goals is important; many of us believe that our intelligence, our personality, and our physical aptitudes are fixed -- that no matter what we do, we won't improve. As a result, we focus on goals that are all about proving ourselves, rather than developing and acquiring new skills. Have grit -- grit is a willingness to commit to long-term goals and to persist in the face of difficulty. Grit predicts which cadets will stick it out, so good effort, plan- ning, persistence and strategies are what it really takes to suc- ceed. Embracing this knowledge will help you see yourself and your goals more accurately. Build your willpower muscle -- when it does not get much exer- cise, it becomes weaker over time. But when you give it regular workouts by putting it to good use, it will grow stronger and stronger, and better able to help you successfully reach your goals. Focus on what you will do, not what you will not do. Plan how you will replace bad habits with good ones, rather than focusing only on the bad habits them- selves. If you want to change your ways, ask yourself: What will I do instead?'' Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm -- Winston Churchill Gardeners were keen Subjects from worm farms to land- scape design were discussed when Mitre 10 Mega held their green- fingered gardening evening last Wednesday. About 150 people attended the two-hour event, which featured 23 classes on a range of gardening topics. Several local businesses includ- ing Archibald's Art Supplies, Tussock Construction and Megason Irrigation Specialists also came to demonstrate their products. Mitre 10 spokesperson Amy Blake said it was a great night. It was just an evening for all the keen gardeners to share tips and tricks. It was quite good for people to see how other local busi- ness could help with gardening.'' Ms Black said the classes were a mixture of quirky and informa- tive''. We had a snail race, that was quite interesting. One that was quite popular was Brett Keno's stone sculpture'' They also gave away spot prizes including a worm farm and a gar- den hamper of products and tools. Ms Black says they plan to hold another evening next winter to help prepare gardeners for the cold season. It's great to have local busi- nesses working together to help grow Upper Hutt.''
