Overcoming Procrastination Achievement and Goal Setting

One of the most critical factors to attaining the life of your dreams is in the Art of Noticing. You see it is the art of noticing that will lead you to clarity.

The art of noticing is really invaluable in three ways:

  1. To guide you in your decision-making
  2. To highlight the valuable lessons that lie in decisions that didn’t quite ‘fit’ with your desired outcomes
  3. It highlights where you need to make changes in your life

People make choices and decisions every day, sometimes they are great decisions and they lead them towards their desired outcome, however sometimes the decision doesn’t quite ‘fit’ with their future goal. Where people get stuck is that they fail to ‘notice’, stop and ask themselves if a particular decision, thought, conversation or action was useful.

It is in the art of noticing that the greatest lessons can be learned. So how do you use this powerful simple tool in your life?

Here’s some action step you may want to being with.

Think back over the last couple of years of your life. Note down any instances or decisions that:

  • Did not leave you with a sense of joy
  • Did not lead you towards your desired outcome
  • Seem to be a repeat pattern in your life

What did you notice about them at the time, or did you just move on with your life?  Now that you are looking at the situation from afar, is there anything you notice which, if you altered your thoughts or actions, could change the way you act in the future? Or could change the way you ‘view’ or ‘see’ what happened?

The secret that many have not yet discovered is – you cannot ‘change’ anyone else, you can only ‘change’ how you ‘see’ them, or how you ‘see’ a situation.
