The Power of a Post It Note

in Goal Setting


In 1953, researchers surveyed Yale’s graduating seniors to determine how many of them had specific, written goals for their future. The answer: 3%.

Twenty years later, researchers polled the surviving members of the Class of 1953 — and found that the 3% with specific, written goals had accumulated more personal financial wealth than the other 97% of the class combined.

Do you have specific, written goals for your business?

If not, it is time to start.

One of the simplest ways to start setting goals is to write this month’s money goal on a Post It note and stick it on your computer where you see it every day (and usually you’ll see it multiple times a day if you are a frequent computer user).

I wrote my money goal on a Post It note on July 1.  Next to the amount that I wanted to earn for the month July, I wrote that I ‘easily and effortlessly achieve my goal’. And guess what? Money has easily and effortlessly come to me this month–I am almost to my target profit goal.

The power of the Post It note is that it creates an intention of what is wanting to be created. Creating a clear intention often inspires direct actions to take. THAT’S where the power ultimately is. Taking action in a way that will increase your business success. Sometimes we need a yellow sticky note to prompt us to do that.

Tomorrow is August 1, the perfect time to start experiencing your own Post It note success. What will your money goal be for August?
