Borders Books' self-help section grows and grows.  There's a niche
for you: start a chain of Self-Help bookstores.  that way you could
ALWAYS help yourself to….uh…never mind..

I can't bring myself
to buy any (more) of those books, which means I must've decided I'm
beyond help, but every once in a while, it probably doesn't hurt to
review the basics.  That what this blog is for, and you'll have to
click the "read more" link to see below the fold.

This may seem
elementary, and almost insulting, but ya know…I got something out of
it, even though I've heard it all before.

As self-starting freelance entrepreneurs, We voiceactors could use a reminder every once in a while about having staunch discipline in the things that keep us focused.

So….indulge me?  It just might
be worth it.  List by: By Aneeqa Waheed (don't ask).

Decide What You Want
First, decide exactly what it is you want in each part of your life. Become a
"meaningful specific" rather than a "wandering generality."

Write it Down
Second, write it down, clearly and in detail. Always think on paper. A goal
that is not in writing is not a goal at all. It is merely a wish and it has no
energy behind it.

Set a Deadline
Third, set a deadline for your goal. A deadline acts as a "forcing system"
in your subconscious mind. It motivates you to do the things necessary to make
your goal come true. If it is a big enough goal, set sub-deadlines as well.
Don't leave this to chance.

Make a List
Fourth, make a list of everything that you can think of that you are going to
have to do to achieve your goal. When you think of new tasks and activities,
write them on your list until your list is complete.

Organize Your List
Fifth, organize your list into a plan. Decide what you will have to do first and
what you will have to do second. Decide what is more important and what is less
important. And then write out your plan on paper, the same way you would
develop a blueprint to build your dream house.

Take Action
The sixth step is for you to take action on your plan. Do something. Do
anything. But get busy. Get going.

Do Something Every Day
Seventh, do something every single day that moves you in the direction of your
most important goal at the moment. Develop the discipline of doing something
365 days each year that is moving you forward. You will be absolutely
astonished at how much you accomplish when you utilize this formula in your
life every single day.

Action Exercises
Here are two things you can do to put these ideas into action immediately.

First, decide exactly what you
want, write it down with a deadline, make a plan and take action – on at least
one goal – today!

Second, determine the price you
will have to pay to achieve this goal and then get busy paying that price –
whatever it is.
