Good one for achieving what you want
Craig Ballantine took over the reins of Early to Rise from Michael Masterson. I thought that there was no way anyone could fill the void – but I am so pleasantly surprised to find that Craig is as good and sometimes even better at sharing and mentoring.
Here is a link to a video Craig has just made about achieving your goals. It starts off the same as most goal setting advice – write down your 10 year goal – be specific – i.e. own 20 cash flow properties and be retired with all expenses paid for with the rental income, living in Waimanalo close or on the beach in a decent 3 bedroom house with separate cottage, have a little condo in town to spend time in Honolulu. (That is Aunty’s goal and I am sharing it for the first time!)
Then, instead of breaking it down into 1 year, 2 year, 5 year goals, he said to forget about that, and instead, do a 90 day plan – identify your #1 priority for the next 3 months that will bring you closer to your 10 year goal, make that your 90 day goal, and focus on doing the things you need to do to achieve it. Aunty’s 90 day goal/plan is to get our house, office, papers in order. I have been putting out the little fires of clutter forever, and now it is time to really get it all organized. On almost all of my to do lists, “clean this” or “clear this” or “find this” has been a constant and a problem which limits my ability to do the things I really need to do to get financially fit and fulfill my big goals.
So simple, so do-able. Check out the video of Craig’s complete presentation. It isn’t too long, and it is just right!
