In one of his lectures, Jim Rohn suggests waking up 30 minutes earlier than you normally do, and taking that 30 minutes to sit down with a pad of paper and a pen. You should do your best to remove everything from your mind except your goal.
Write the goal at the top of the page, and then think about how you could reach that goal. Think as many things as possible. Think about what services or products people might want or need, or how you could adapt what you do right now to help more people, or provide a better service to the people with whom you work now. Write down everything that comes to mind. Even if the ideas seem ridiculous, write them down. It’s likely that most of them will be useless, but even one great idea a day can change your life. At the end of the thirty minutes, look back at your ideas. Also try to do this once a week, looking back at all 7 days worth of ideas.
The idea behind this is to get your mind thinking early in the morning. It’s like a warm-up for your brain. Once it’s warmed up, you’ll find that it will continue to think of ideas throughout the day. Write those down too. You should always have something with you to write in wherever you go.
These ideas will do two things: 1) they will help you figure out how to get where you want to go, and 2) they will help you to keep your goal in mind throughout the day. When your goal stays before you constantly, you will achieve it.
