Mid-Week Goal Setting

“If you have to eat two frogs, eat the ugliest one first.”
– Brian Tracy


Happy Wednesday!

Whether your week got off to a fantastic start…

Or you got sidelined by a surprise task and are just catching up…

Wednesday is a great day to check in with yourself to see if you’re moving towards the goals you set on Monday for this week.

So starting today we’re going to send you a quick tip to get the most from your week so you smash through your goals with joy, fulfilment and a sense of control in life and business.


Mid Week Goal Setting Check-in

Take out the list of 3-5 most important tasks you set out for this week.

Then as 3 simple questions:

  1. What am I grateful for today?

(this sets your mind into ‘abundance’ mode!)

  1. What needs to happen TODAY to make sure I complete these 3 -5 – no matter what?

(Put a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on your office door, Escape to a coffee shop and put on some music and just crank, Delegate it to your assistant, etc)

  1. What can be pushed off until next week so you can check these off your list?

(Not all things are urgent)

“You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will”

Productivity Hack

Are you finding little epiphanies and life’s to-do’s are distracting you throughout the workday?

You might want to try Laterbox.

Laterbox turns your new tab page into a prioritized to-do list, with a special box at the top for you to type in any sudden ideas, realizations, or requests from the supermarket on the way home from the office.


At the end of your workday (which you can customize) Laterbox sends you everything you’ve dropped there in a neat list via email.


This way, you can set aside non-essential tasks for later without fear of forgetting, and with no need to dedicate valuable brain space to remembering over the course of the day either.

Quick Tip


When interacting with new leads and prospects, remember:


They are the hero of their own personal journey.


You are there to help them reach their goals.


You are the mentor, the helper – the source of knowledge and wisdom and the person that ENABLES them to achieve their desired outcome.


Every interaction with a prospect should make them feel like you are putting them first – you understand where they are and where they want to go, and you have the knowledge and authority they can trust to make that journey happen.


To do this, ask questions.




You should be listening for 90% of every conversation you have with a prospect.


When you’re done listening, summarize and repeat back to your prospect what they’ve told you, and confirm that you’ve understood their problem and desired solution.


Then request a second meeting where you will offer your help AFTER taking time to consider their individual needs.


Take action and make magic happen this week.
