Whenever you make a decision, you know that you have to think about why it is you’re doing it.
What people often forget to do is write that explanation down.
As you actually move through whatever it is that you’re doing, it’s easy to change directions and begin to create sub-goals or completely different goals unrelated to what it is you set out to do.
You can become lost in doing it.
Writing the goal down when you make the decision does three things:
- It sets you with a clearer objective that you will reference as you do it
- When it gets complicated and you need a reminder as to why you’re doing it, you’ll have it there for easy access to set you back on track
- If something goes wrong, it’ll make learning from your mistake much easier
