Every few months I end up giving a workshop on Goal Setting. I’m a proponent of writing down your goals and developing a personal goal strategy. In 2006 Harvard Business School Press published an easy to read article on the benefits of goal setting called “Increase Your Personal Productivity and Effectiveness.”
But while presenting last week on this topic, I shared an action phrase that I’m often guilty of. I mentioned the term “Ready, Fire, Aim.” I’m such an advocate of taking action that I sometimes forget to aim!
Well, the group kicked around a few more “Action Sayings” so I thought I’d share them.
- There are two types of people, the quick and the dead.
- Time waits for no one.
- Ready, Fire, Aim
- Never up, never in – must have been a golfer in the crowd.
- You snooze, you loose.
So there you have it, my current “fave” five action sayings.
