30-Day Discipline Experiment – Day 14

Success is amped and ramped up when we set goals.  Yesterday several of us had the courage to set some public goals.  Today I want to share a very cool tool with you that will help you track your success with achieving your goal.  A subscriber shared this site with me the other day.

It’s called www.joesgoals.com.  It’s an amazing little program that doesn’t require a software download…so you don’t need to get permission from IT to use it at work.  You can set yourself up in a matter of seconds.  You can use this tool to set personal or professionals goals.  And it’s FREE – one of our favorite words!

Here’s a description of Joe’s Goals from the web site.

What is Joe’s Goals?
Joe’s Goals is a simple yet powerful tool to make tracking your goals the easiest part of accomplishing them. Use the simple single page interface to setup daily goals and track them with just a click. Watch your daily score to gage your success and use negative goals (or vices) to confront and overcome bad habits that finally need to get the boot. Share your success with your friends and family or post your personal score badge to your blog or MySpace page. Add as many Goals as you want and update them all from a single interface.

Here’s a screen shot of my goals page:

You can add journal entries for each day too–see the bottom line?  I called my journal “Healthy, Happy Living.”  Neato!  Try it. 

Tracking our goals takes our commitment (and discipline) to the next level.  Ready to do that? 

Click on the blue box below to see my goals.  You can root around and see how this tool works!  How’s THAT for public goals!

    Hi Cheryl,

    I love this site too! And I notice there are no check marks yet in the Go to the Gym row. = >

    So I want to offer my favorite question to ask when a part of me wants something and another part is clearly resisting it.

    It’s this: Ask the resisting part “If I go to the gym and start getting the results I really want, what’s the worst thing that will happen?”

    Ask this from a quiet and non-judgmental space and then just wait for any sense of an answer. You might get something visual, you might hear words or you might get a physical feeling.

    Our resistance is actually pretty wise and loving and often really believes it’s protecting us from something. Try it and see what comes up.

    Hey Cheryl,

    I happened to be checking out Joe’s blog and came across his reference to another blog post on how to make the most of your Joe’s Goals chart:

    http://blog.lodewijkvdb.com/2008/04/track-your-goals-and-habits-with-joes-goals.html

    I love how he uses logbooks as dividers for different goal areas and also for showing planned vs actual activities.

    This thing just keeps getting more useful!
    Enjoy!

    Susan

  5. Hi Susan – your question about resistance is interesting. I don’t think my resistance is that “deep.” I’m thinking…..I can go to the gym or I can go home, put my feet up, get something cold to drink, write a blog post, get dinner, and have time to check in with my friends at the coffee shop at 8.

    Mine’s a question of choosing what I want to do in the moment. That’s the piece that needs to change. Making the gym look and feel more attractive is my goal. I’m doing this by printing off the gym schedule, getting my exercise bag filled and ready, and marking on my calendar the days I want to commit to. Once I do that, I’m there! And I’m close.

    Thanks for the link about personalizing Joe’s Goals. I’m growing more fond of that every day. Cheryl
