It’s back to school time

and whether you are sending your kids back to school or you are going back to school, Dr. Seuss always has great wisdom. Dr. Seuss may be thought of as a children’s book author, he is really a life author for everyone.

If you have kids you are sending back to school, you should tell this quote every morning when they leave the house. You should post this quote on their mirror in their bathroom if they have one. It’s important for our kids to start early believing they can achieve their goals. This quote by Dr. Seuss tells us that we are off to great places and we can be great.

“There are mountains to climb and summits to reach.

These are the lessons to our kids we should teach.

Get up early, don’t dilly or dally,

Go get your goals if you are a Tom or a Sally”

OK, it’s not Dr. Seuss, but I gave it a shot. If you are going to school yourself, whether you are young, in high school, or going to college. You will need to set goals. Determine what you want to do, what grades you want to receive. Once you know that, you can work with the teacher to learn what it will take to achieve the grade you want.

Most likely you will have specific tasks for each teacher or professor. Learn what is require and write down what they are and when they are due. That will be the first big step. If you know what you have to do and when you have to complete them, you can then start scheduling your days to work on each task. I like to work on the toughest ones first. If I can knock the most difficult items first, then I should have time to breeze through the easy assignments.  How about you?  How have you been working on your assignments?

Do you find it hard to plan working on your tasks. Maybe you need some help. You can pick up my Goal Achievement Success System Action Worksheet and use it to outline your daily goals. The measurement worksheet will allow you to track the tasks each day that must be accomplished. When you complete those tasks. I want to help you do great in school. Mom’s and Dad’s work with your kids or let them work with you if you are the one going to school. That’s right. You may need some help from the kids if you are going back to school these days. Even Tiger Woods has someone he works with on his swing.

If you need help, let me know. We can schedule a 20 minute Clarity Call to talk about where you are and what you are working on. We’ll talk and give you some actionable tips to get you started. We’ll put a little GASS in your goals and get your engines going.

If you want to set up a 20 minute Clarity Call, email me at Tony at GoalGettingPodcast.com. We’ll schedule something and get you on track.

Remember. You’re off to great places, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so be on your way.
