IDEAL  is an acronym for the five things common among all successful goals.  What you may not realize is that you already practice these five things!  If, however, you don't apply each one deliberately, and as a process, you cannot make your best effort to improve, achieve, and become what is important to you. 

Learn how to apply IDEAL to your life of business, because IDEAL applies to you!


Don’t live on autopilot! 

Stay active in telling the story of your life or your business.

Sometimes, we get caught up in routines, lose focus, and stop creating, building, and becoming.

I'm here to remind you:  you have aspirations, beliefs, desires, and time (you're still here!). I'll help you achieve your goals. What do you want to realize in your life or business?

INTEND:  Step 1 of 5

We're not aimless; we act with intention.  Most of us believe that we know what we want.  The issue here is not clarity about what we intend, but, rather, clarity about the requirements to achieve what we intend, be it a personal or professional goal.  Being clear about what we intend involves knowing what resources are essential for our success, how we could fail, and accurate awareness about our starting point – where we stand today.  Are you clear about how you'll succeed in your endeavors?
