181. How Billionaires Set Goals (Part 1)

Mar 18, 2019 | 0 comments

Are you living a life by default or are you living a life by design?

Most of us are living a life by default. We wake up, take action, experience some successes, experience some failures, then repeat – but we get what we get by default. When billionaires set goals, however, they cast a vision into the future, then look backwards and set goals to the now. That’s how we live a life by design.

In this episode, we’re sharing the first half of Jay Papasan and Geoff Woods’s keynote presentation at the Keller Williams Family Reunion Convention 2019. This part is about the high-level principles of goal setting like a billionaire, and in the second part, we will dive into the tools billionaires use for goal setting.

In this episode, you will learn…

  • [3:40] How you can start goal setting to the now
  • [11:20] What you can learn from Gary Keller about getting clarity on your goals
  • [16:00] Where in your life are you currently chasing distractions and saying no to what is truly the priority?

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you want to achieve extraordinary results, you can’t set goals looking forward. You have to have a vision for where you want to end up so that you can look back and identify the path that will get you there.

When you do that, you will know how to separate a true priority from a distraction.
