Ever set goals and fail miserably or give up before you've even really started? This is a helpful video to understand a S.M.A.R.T. strategy for your goals, take daily actions towards them, have accountability for them and make progressive pivots on your weaknesses to learn and grow so you stay on track towards them.

It's important to incorporate focus areas for the day, and also affirmations.
At the end of your day, identify two major actions, identify your strengths and weaknesses and act upon your weakness with small and progressive pivots of character.
Accountability is also a big killer of accomplishing goals. The majority of people set yearly goals (resolutions) and are bright eyed and bushy tailed at the start, and dead inside by the end. This is because no one is holding them accountable for the completion of their goals but themselves.

Looking forward at a goal is good, but looking back and improving upon weaknesses can get you there;
- more effectively
- more accurately
