Setting Yourself up to Win | Make a Schedule

Part of being an effective leader is understanding how to lead yourself, too. It starts with managing your daily, weekly, and monthly schedule. It is called: setting yourself up to win.

I use the Self Journal to validate my goals, daily and weekly. (13 weeks per Journal)

What are your milestones for the week? This is my way of affirming what I will accomplish.

If you don’t establish an agenda, objectives, and goals – how are you accomplishing them? Meaning, without a target, you’ll miss it every time.

What are your daily activities and habits? These are things that I will do, not just talk about doing.

“How can a man hit a target he cannot see? That’s a pretty good question; here’s another one. How can you hit a target, you do not have?”

– Zig Ziglar

By not setting yourself up to win, you are telling yourself:

  1. I am focused on being reactive, instead of taking initiative.
  2. I don’t make things happen, I wait for them to magically happen, for me.
What did you learn? What did you win? What are you grateful for? Write it down.

You know what to do. But, do you do what you know? Your schedule will tell the truth.
