  Week 3 Introduction

Goals & Habits

This week we’re moving on to Part 2 of the Better You Course and zeroing in on what it takes to build healthier habits and improve our productivity. The reason we’re just now getting into habits (the building blocks of personal growth) is because of how important Part 1: Identity & Beliefs is.

In Part 1, we talked about your beliefs and identity and led off with the most important quote of this entire course: “You become what you think about.”

Last week, we also talked about getting clear on what you want in this season of your life because the reality is, if you don’t decide what you want in life someone or something will decide that for you. We also talked about how the secret of motivation is to be fueled by your “Why” and raising the necessity of hitting your goals.

You should now have a better idea of what you believe about yourself, what you value, and who you want to become. Hopefully you’ve been doing the action steps and truly integrating this in your life. Remember, this advice is just one component… Believing this for yourself (through taking action) and finding community (through sharing this course experience with others and teaching others about what you’re learning) is what will actually make the difference.

This week, we’re talking about goals and habits — but what we’re really going to dive into is how to create systems that will future-proof your success.

As our quote of the week says: “Goals are good for setting a direction, but systems are best for making progress.”

Going to the moon is a clear goal, but having that goal doesn’t get you any closer to the moon. Creating a system for getting to the moon is what actually lands a spaceship on the moon with a crew of people. The system is rocket science, physics, engineering, astronomy, and every other detail that allowed us to get there.

Going to the moon requires a very complicated system, so in comparison, your system of success will be a piece of cake. We’re simply going to create systems for maximizing our days so that we eventually accomplish our personal and professional goals. Let’s do it!
