If you've come across the area of 'keystone habits' then this wont be unfamiliar. One of the most recognised Keystone habits is goal setting.
For me the single most important skill for success is your ability to set and accomplish goals. I've become fascinated with the power and focus goals offer to achieve things that matter most.
In December 2015 I set a series of goals that were small, large and life changing. As I began to explore them I noticed something about one of the goals I had set.
This goal had dominated a lot of my actions but had contributed to achieving almost 100% of my smaller goals set. I immediately sat back and wondered how that had come about.
There was the answer. This goal was based on the one quality I would need to master in order to make every other small goal a reality. That goal was a skill goal. The ability to learn faster and teach it to others.
I named this skill a 'Keystone goal' - a goal that is skill based. A skill that if focused on could help you accomplish a large majority of other goals you set in the short or long term.
How do you discover and set a 'Keystone goal' that helps drive the right activity to achieving your other goals? Here are four things you need to do that will set you up for successful goal achievement.
1. Write out your goals and get specific with why they matter, when you want them and what would need to be true to achieve it.
2. Mark out the goals in 30, 60 and 90 day increments
3. Determine the one core skill you will need to master to achieve those goals
4. Set short, medium and long term goals around that skill. Set daily time to work on it between 30 min to an hour, get started and track weekly progress.
What are thoughts on this Keystone goal?
Do you recognise any Keystone goals in your life today? (skills you're working on without knowing that are contributing to your success)
