Want a surefire way to stay on track to reach your goals? Track! Tracking has many benefits and may even help you to reach your goals. Here are some of the great benefits of tracking:
It makes you more accountable. Whether you’re tracking your daily lead generating activities or you’re tracking your runs each week, tracking holds your feet to the fire and keeps you accountable to your goals. Knowing that you have to document your activities makes you more likely to make them a habit, and less likely to forget to do them.
It helps you to grain perspective. When we’re trying to achieve our goals, it’s easy to lose perspective along the way. If you have a bad day or experience a setback, it can make you feel like a failure. However, when you track, you’re able to look back on your progress over time and see that a day that doesn’t go your way is a small hiccup in the grand scheme of things.
It’ll motivate you to reach your goals. Knowing that you have to account for your goal-oriented activities each day helps you to stay motivated on those days when you’re just not feeling it. Also looking back at the successful completion of milestones also provides motivation when you need it the most.
