Here is a strategy to help you overcome this problem.
Most ambitious people are busy people and when you are busy it is easy to allow some things to slip by without you realizing it. You may have intentions of taking some goal directed action today but there are so many demands on your time already that today soon becomes tomorrow.
Unfortunately it often doesn't stop there. Tomorrow is also a busy day and so your goal actions get postponed again and again and before you know it you are well behind on your plans. Once this happens you are well and truly in the group of people whose goal setting words are exceeding their goal achieving actions.
The easiest way to assess this is to look at the last seven days. Now before you tell me that you can't use the last seven days because they were special circumstances let me tell you that every day is a special circumstance and unless you face this reality nothing will change. So let's use the last seven days for this exercise.
Question 1: On how many of those last seven days did you read over your goals?
If you are going to actually achieve your goals then you need to keep the dream alive. One of the best ways to do this is to read over your goals daily, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year.
Question 2: On how many of those last seven days did you put aside at least 10 minutes to visualize yourself already living your goal?
In order to program your subconscious mind you need to visualize yourself as already having achieved your goal and see yourself reaping all of the benefits that come with achieving that goal.
Question 3: On how many of those last seven days did you actually take some action that could reasonably be described as action designed to bring you closer to fully achieving your goal.
If you can't specifically write down what you did and describe how it qualifies as goal directed action then you can't count it. At the end of the day it is your goal directed action that determines whether you get your goal or not so you have to be strict in assessing what goal directed action you are taking.
People who get their goals actually take some goal directed action each and every day without fail and without excuses. If you are having a really busy day that is beyond your control still take some goal directed action no matter how small. Even if your goal directed action that day is so small that the outcome is insignificant what remains significant is that you reinforced the habit of taking goal directed action daily.
In order to break the habit of taking daily goal directed action all you have to do is miss one day. That also means that to keep the habit all you have to do is take some goal directed action today. Don't think about what action you are going to take tomorrow or how long you have to keep taking this daily action just focus on taking some genuine goal directed action today and you are still in the game.
