In project management, we use a system that allows clients to follow a to-do list in order to stay focused and organized. Implementing a goal-setting system for yourself is a great way to ensure that you actually complete your to-do list. Set a goal to check off at least one goal per day, or at least contribute to a goal that can be checked off the next few days. This system will hold you accountable for what you say you want to accomplish. Also, when setting goals always put an end date to ensure that you have several opportunities of accountability. Sometimes we can cheat a little when we aren't working with a coach or a partner. After all, the goal is to get things done and not play games with your life!
