Your Greatest Self.
To be ambitious for wealth, and yet always expecting to be poor; to be always doubting your ability to get what you long for, is like trying to reach east by traveling west. There is no philosophy which will help man to succeed when he is always doubting his ability to do so, and thus attracting failure. No matter how hard you work for success if your thought is saturated with the fear of failure, it will kill your efforts, neutralize you endeavors and make success impossible.
- Charles Baudouin
S.M.A.R.T is a mnemonic acronym, giving criteria to guide in the setting of objectives.
You should know exactly what you are planning to do with the expected and desired outcome.
Measuring progress is supposed to help you stay on track. Have a set up that enables you to know when you have reached your goal.
You can develop the attitudes, abilities, skills and financial capacity to reach your goals but they must first be achievable.
Are you thinking relevant? A goal that supports or is in alignment with other goals would be considered a relevant goal.
Attaching a time to your goal makes you accountable and means you have something to work towards.
Are You Ready to Aim Higher?
Our connected world makes it possible for people to actualize dreams, ideas and initiative in ways our forebears could not even dream of.
1. Whatever you want to know is accessible instantly.
Want to collect fountain pens from around the world, want to learn how to collect truﬄes, want to ﬁnd someone to build a mobile phone app for you in another continent, want to retrain, want to research how to bicycle across the world…? No problem. It’s all at your ﬁngertips.
2. Need to locate expert help?
Then connect with people who can help you. The soaring development of the social web has demolished barriers between you and the expertise you need. It empowers you to ask friends of friends (and friends of friends of friends) if they can oﬀer advice, make introductions, share experiences.
3. Tribe up.
Whatever it is you want to start doing-a business, a work of art, a social project, setting up a partnership of website information architects-there are people somewhere in the world who share your passion. Want to find people to trade antique fountain pens with? There are thousands of them. It doesn’t take Sherlcok Holmesto find people who share your passion. You can support each other, learn from each other, do business with each other. The author Seth Godin calls these groups of shared passions: “Tribes.”
4. The “barriers to entry” have collapsed.
OK, so that’s a business term and we’re not just talking about business. But the point is that the cost of setting up many businesses or even non-business projects has collapsed. Most digital start-ups don’t even need an office but work from shared space or coffee shops. This has, for example, had an impact on the venture capital world. The power used to be in the hands of the VCs because you needed money to set up a business and they would exact a heavy price for the cash. Now that it doesn’t cost so much to start up, the power is with people who have ideas and the “gumption” to make them happen.
5. You’re already at the centre of the universe.
And if in fact you are starting a starting a business or collecting fountain pens from around the world, the world, the global markets are wide open for open business. From your front room.
