What is The 2190 Rule & How Can It Help You Stay Focused on Your Goals?
Today is the start of a new month. When you reflect on the first quarter of the year, which ended yesterday, what can you confidently say that you have accomplished? If there are some things on your list that you didn’t quite complete, then here’s 4 tips on how to stay focused on your goals for the second quarter.
Before we get into those tips, the one word we have heard, the past few days, is “CONSISTENCY”. If you want to accomplish something: a goal, a strategy, etc., you have to be consistency. Consistency may become monotonous and tedious but if you put in the work, you are bound to reap the rewards of our efforts.
You also may be wondering: well, what is this 2190 rule & how can it help me get focused stay focused? The 2190 rule is this:
- Set a goal – determine what is you want to accomplish. It could something personal or business related. Write it, and the steps you plan to take, down so that you have something in writing to review each day.
- Find a strategy – a strategy could be: a marketing plan, lifestyle change, etc. that will help you accomplish or get closer to your goal. If it’s something that will help promote/grow your business, then identify the tools you need to get the job done.
- Focus on your goals – commit to going hard for the first 21 days. That’s the first part of the 2190 rule. If you do something for 21 days straight, it then becomes a habit. Commit to doing the task/lifestyle change every day for the next 21 days so that it becomes a habit.
- Repeat for the next 90 days – Yep, you read that right, 90 DAYS (which if you think about it brings you to the end of the 2nd quarter)! Anything that we set our minds to do & do it consistently for 90 days then becomes a lifestyle change. Hence, the “2190” rule.
You’ve got this…Accept the challenge to implement the 2190 rule to get focused. Find ways to focus on the goal at hand. If that means turning off the TV, cutting out some activities, eliminating some non-income producing activities from your schedule, coming off social media for anything outside of growing your business, then so be it. Challenge yourself and see if you can do it. We believe that you can.
