How to never miss an appointment with yourself ever again

I hope you had a great weekend! I know my lovely Canadian clients did! :)

It's Monday. It's March 1st. We all have great intentions for the day. For the week. And for the month. Yet, many of us miss appointment after appointment with others, and mostly, ourselves.

Here's how to prevent that from happening again:

Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz in their book, The Power of Full Engagement, describe a study in which a group of women agreed to do a breast self-exam for a period of 30 days.

100% (yes, 100%!) who said when and where they were going to do it completed the 30 day exam. Only 53% of the others did.

In another study, drug addicts in withdrawal (can you find a more stressed out population? I also think many of us are food addicts so we can relate) agreed to write an essay before 5PM on a certain day.

80% of those who said when and where they'd write the essay completed it! In this case, NONE of the others did.

Bottom line: If you want to get something done, decide when and where you're going to do it. Otherwise, don't expect to do it.

Tip: On your Daily Feedback tell me what time you intend on exercising and where. In fact, for any nagging task that makes the outcome list write when and where.

Let's go! (Right now, wherever you are!)
