It’s February, which means that many people who made New Year’s Resolutions and big goals for 2021 might be falling off their horse right about now. It’s sad, but it’s the truth. And as we discussed previously, that failure can stem from a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that they jumped right in instead of taking the proper steps to increase their chances of success.
As I discuss in my book, those last two things–the Commitment Team and Accountability Appointment–comprise your Fall off the Horse Plan.
That’s right, there’s a Fall off the Horse Plan. Why? Because no matter who you are or what your goal may be, there’s always the possibility that something will happen that will knock you off track. That’s just life. And since it’s almost inevitable, it’s best to plan for it!
A blogger recently wrote a positive review of the book on her site, and the Fall off the Horse Plan resonated with her. She said, “I enjoyed the empowering tone behind the Fall off the Horse Plan chapters, where one envisions what types of falls and issues they could have, with steps on how to get back on and people who will help them. Often, many books strive for positivity in goal setting and mindset, but fail to address what happens if something goes wrong.”
If you follow the goal-setting process laid out in PROJECT BOLD LIFE, you’ll have a Fall off the Horse Plan in the form of the Commitment Team and Accountability Appointment to help you get back in the saddle.
As Pam McElvane wrote in her review of the book on the Diversity MBA site, “regardless of whatever challenges you may face, success is always possible.” If that challenge is falling off the horse, as long as you’ve got a person or person you’ve made a public commitment to, as well as an appointment to hold you accountable in the future, your Bold Goals are still within your reach.
Keep living Bold, and if you fall off the horse, get back on and keep going!
All the best,
