Grandma Mary Says Keep the Promises You Make to Yourself

Pep talk with Grandma MaryYou might think that promises to other people are more important but you need to respect your own promises, too.

Here are my thoughts on how you can be more successful at keeping those promises.  I also have a different take on “SMART” goals – watch the video to find out.


Here are my tips on keeping those promises:

1.  Don’t over-promise.  Keep it simple so that you can achieve it.  Focus on one small thing at a time.

2.  Do it first.  Put those big rocks in your day before getting to the other work.

3.  Make it concrete.  Don’t say “I’m going to blog more” and expect to know when you’ve done it.

I have some other good nuggets in the video so make sure you watch.  And tell me what goal you are working on now in the comments below!
