EveryDay Reminders

We want to keep our goals in our sight constantly while we’re working toward them. So how can we do that? Some people have Post-It Notes on their mirror or calendar or computer to remind them. I have a whiteboard on my wall that I use. Others whose goal include something concrete- like a house or a boat- have pictures of their goal in a place they always see- like their car or wallet.

One of the most powerful examples of keeping a goal in sight was written about by Mauricio Estrella, Associate Creative Director, EF Education First in a Huffington Post blog entitled How a Password Changed My Life. He used the need to change his password every 30 days and to use that password several times a day to access his computer. He began to use his goals to create the passwords and those constant reminders helped him meet his goals- such as forgiving his ex-wife, quitting smoking, going on a trip to Thailand and getting a cat. It’s a great, short read. Check it out here:

I don’t use a password on my laptop but I do have a passcode for my iPhone that I input numerous times a day. This article inspired me to figure out how to change it from numbers to letters. Examples of the passwords I’ve used are:
