Why Goal Setting and
Resolutions Alone Don't Work
by Leslie Sturgeon, WIW Founder

set goal, make plan, work, stick to it, reach goal - a success concept presented with colorful sticky notes
Friday, January 30, 2015
Palace Theatre, Manchester, NH


Yes, I have talked a lot over the years about goal setting and resolutions. We have had speakers on these subjects at WIW events. Many of the women in our group coach individuals on goal setting. But hear me out before you get your panties in a bunch and call me a hypocrite . . .


As the saying goes, you would never head out on a road trip without a GPS or map so why should you venture out in life without a plan? You can pull out your journal and outline your goals and dreams. You can cut out images from a magazine and create a vision board to help you visualize the life you have always wanted. You can do positive affirmations and wait for the Universe to make it all come true. Those are all well and good (and important) but here is the problem . . . YOU NEED TO TAKE ACTION. And you need to take a lot of action even when your enthusiasm is fading when you don't see immediate results. In your career and business, you need to be willing to do what others won't do and go the extra 10 miles to do it. Stop waiting for all these goals to become reality - they aren't going to until you do it. Get your butt in gear.


We are all busy people and I can hear a lot of you already saying, "But Leslie I don't have time. I will work on these goals when my schedule frees up." So you want your cake and you want to eat it, too. You want these goals to be achieved, but you aren't willing to carve out time to do it! You have less time in a day than I have, Mark Zuckerberg does, Oprah does and the person next door? That's BS. We all have 24 hours in a day. It is how we choose to spend those 24 hours that make the difference. The power of focus, time management and productivity can be another blog post, but I will tell you that if it is important, you will find at least 15 minutes a day to pursue your goals. Stop the excuses.


It is as simple as identifying the goal, brain dumping the action steps needed and adding these tasks to your to do list. Again, 15 minutes a day. Think about it - can't you plug away at the tasks needed to achieve your goal in 15 minutes? It isn't rocket science!  

While some may think what I am saying is harsh and bordering on rude, I am trying to make you realize that you must take action. I want nothing more than the women in the WIW community to have a fulfilling life and be happy. Plain and simple - just get 'er done! 


To read more of our blogs, visit our website HERE.  





To make headway on any task, set your clock,
alarm, cell phone or whatever for 15 minutes
and see what you can accomplish. You will be AMAZED. It almost becomes a game to see
  what you can do before the buzzer goes off!    

This applies to many things . . .

Accomplishing a goal, cleaning your office,

reading the newspaper, catching up on emails, etc. 


Laughter is the best medicine.  
Combine that with cool women and
great conversation and you have
one fantastic evening!

musical will provide refreshing
comic relief to your dread of the
infamous 'mid-life crisis'.
Finding humor in the situations

the cast will have you shaking
your head 'yes', whether it be mammogram
