And if your experience is like mine, one reason we don’t reach goals is because we don’t turn the goal into a plan, with specific actions taken on a regular basis.
And even if we identify the actions (which puts far ahead of most people), we aren’t always as consistent in those actions as we wish we were.
Put another way, when you have achieved your goals is it because you’ve taken your goal, turned it into a plan, created actions and then taken those actions consistently.
Irunurun.com is a tool that can be used on the web or on your iPhone as an app to help you with the final pieces of that puzzle. You take your goal plan and translate it into actions. The tool allows you to specify how many times each week you want to take this action (for example perhaps your plan is to exercise 4 times per week, but read every day, and do something else once per week – all of those are available options).
Once you set up your actions, the tool asks you to weight the relative importance of each action. Once this is done, you are set! (if you have goals set already, you can get this process started in 5 minutes).
You record your actions each day on the web or on your phone, and each week the tool gives you a score.
You can share your score and actions with others, have team goals and more (none of which I have yet explored). Taken at the simplest level, this tool can provide you with a way to track progress on important actions, hold you accountable for your progress, and set up a simple way for you to compete with yourself on the path to your goals.
If you would like to achieve more – whether the goal is personal or professional, I encourage you to check out this tool – as it might be just what you need to help you move towards your goals faster.
