Did you know that if a person sets a goal and writes it down, the chances of them achieving their goal is only 37%? That is NOT very exciting; is it?
However, if a person sets a goal; writes it down; and in addition to writing it down also commits to their daily activities; shares it with someone like a coach, AND reports on their progress at the end of EVERY day, the chances of them achieving their goal goes up to 76%!
That is an incredible number; isn’t it?!*
