Did you see my last post about choosing one breakthrough goal in 2021 – a goal that would uplevel every area of your life?
(If you did choose a goal, and you can reveal it publicly, drop it into the comment section and share it!)
Sometimes big goals, like your OolaOne goal, seem scary and unattainable. So the Oola Guys – Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl, authors of the book Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World – recommend a handy tool that helps you take small steps toward your goal every day: the humble 3x5 card.
Every morning, grab a 3x5 card and divide it in half (by drawing a vertical line down the center). List the things you need to accomplish for work on one half—and the things you need to accomplish at home on the other. Whatever is important today, write it down.
When you’re finished writing, your list may surprise you.
If you find your card is filled with tasks, errands and calls that don’t really move you closer to your biggest life goal, it’s time to reassess your priorities.
For example, if your goal is to be 100% debt-free, could you do one thing every day toward eliminating your debt?
Instead of writing down “Order that necklace for Tanya’s birthday,” your 3x5 card might read: “List outstanding bills in a spreadsheet.” Instead of “Start new car shopping,” your card could read “Move $100 from checking account to auto loan.”
See what I mean? Once it’s written down, you can see what makes sense (or not), and write a different to-do list that gets you closer to your best life ever.
As a Certified Oola Life Coach, I help clients determine their OolaOne goal, then prioritize their daily tasks and—most importantly—stay accountable to accomplishing them week after week. In fact, I’ve joined forces with Dave and Troy to bring my followers the Oola formula via a 10-week coaching experience
