A renowned university studied how people spoke about making a change or achieving a particular outcome in their life and the associated likelihood of them achieving it. The results were enlightening, to say the least.
* Of those that said, "that's a good idea," they had a 10% chance of success,
* Of those that committed and said, "I'll do that." They had a 25% chance of success.
* Of those that said WHEN they would do it, they had a 40% chance of success.
* Of those with a SPECIFIC PLAN of how to do it, they had a 50% chance of success.
* Of those that committed to SOMEONE ELSE that they would do it, they had a 60% chance of success.
* And of those that SET A SPECIFIC TIME TO SHARE THEIR PROGRESS with someone else, they had a 95% chance of success.
So the secret to successfully making any change, or achieving any goal, is an ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER, someone who cares enough about your success and who communicates with you at least once a week to make sure you are doing what you say you are doing.
A place for casual conversations (that don't fit anywhere else.)
