Elon Musk is famous for his great phrase:
“Stop being patient and start asking yourself, ‘how do I accomplish my 10 year plan in 6 months?’ You will probably fail but you will be a lot further ahead of the person who simply accepted it was going to take 10 years.”
Musk was absolutely right. You don’t have to play it safe and be like everyone else. Imagine if your goal could be achieved in 90 days. Imagine if your life could be transformed in 90 days. What are you waiting for?
Well, in this article, I’m going to share with you 5 ultimate steps on how you can achieve your goals in just 90 days…
1. Focus on just ONE goal
You cannot allow yourself to lose focus and scatter your efforts if you are determined to achieve amazing results in 90 days. You must focus on just ONE goal.
Concentrate your effort, your time and energy on the only goal that is going to make the biggest impact in your life.
Hence, the first step you should do is to ask yourself, “What is the one goal that if I achieved, everything in my life will change?”
Your mission is then to concentrate monomaniacally and in 90 days on achieving this goal.
That’s right, just one goal. It’s not multiple or even three.
Think about it, one completed project has a more powerful impact on your life than 10 uncompleted projects, isn’t it?
If you want to build an internet business, you don’t have to start with 10 websites or 10 ideas. It is enough to be focused on just one. You only need to create one website and work on growing and building it.
This is also true for publishing a book. You don’t have to start with writing 5 books. You can focus only on writing one book. One completed book can change more lives than five half-finished books.
Now, think about the goal you would like to accomplish that will make your life better.
2. Reduce your time to achieve your goals in 90 days
The next step is to reduce your goals down to 90 days. It doesn’t matter if it is a yearly goal or a 3-year goal, the key is to make it in just 90 days.
That’s right, 90 days. While it’s going to be difficult, it will be rewarding and enjoyable.
Instead of setting an annual goal to create a YouTube channel that has 10,000 subscribers, set a 90-day target.
Instead of writing a book over a year, do it in just 90 days.
One of the biggest reasons why people don’t achieve their goals is because they are too flexible and take on too much.
Don’t set a yearly goal. Aim for a goal of 90 days. Why? It’s because too many events can occur in one year. It’s difficult to plan and predict what might happen in a year, let alone three months.
It is also difficult to achieve a goal if it seems too distant.
You can think about this: If you only have one year to lose weight, how will you get in shape again? You procrastinate.
If January is missed, don’t worry. You still have 11 months.
And this is why 90% of people who set New Year’s resolutions fail to accomplish them. It is because annual goals, or annualize thinking, are not productive.
You can therefore compress your goal, and promise to reach it in 90 days.
3. Get up and do something first thing every morning
You should then take huge action every day. It is your goal to set aside time every morning to accomplish this mission.
Why? The reason is simple – if it has to happen, it has to be the first thing in the morning.
You will find many distractions throughout the day. Children will distract you. They will contact your coworkers. You will be a buzzing social media sensation among your friends. You will need to respond to emails. You’ll feel tired and hungry.
Robin Sharma (the best-selling author The 5 AM Club), suggests that readers wake up at 5 AM and work towards their most important goals.
It is fresh and early every morning. You are free from distractions, and most of the world still sleeps. This is the ideal time to focus on your main goal. This will allow you to have an advantage over other people.
You may not know this, but Kobe Bryant was one of the most extraordinary athletes to get up at 5:30 AM and go to the gym. Apple CEO Tim Cook was said to get up at 3:45 each morning in order to go to work. Ursula Burns is the CEO of Xerox. She rises at 5:30 to do exercise and to reply to emails.
Get up at dawn to start working on your opus magnum.
4. Every day, commit to at least 90 minutes action
Success is achieved by being willing to go beyond what the majority of people would not do. You must be committed to taking steps every day to reach your goals.
Successful and unsuccessful individuals have dreams and goals. Their difference isn’t their goals and dreams, or aspirations. It is the actions they take that make them successful. People who are successful take action.
Unsuccessful people, on the other hand, only dream about what they want, but they don’t take action.
Every morning, you must commit to at least 90 minutes to take action in order to reach your goals. If you don’t have time or you think you are too busy, then wake up early to do it.
You can set a goal to wake up every morning at five in the morning for the next ninety days. Then, work towards your goals for at least 90 minutes each day.
I guarantee you that you’ll make great progress if this is done in 90 days. Your life will change after three months.
5. Measure, track, and pivot
Finally, monitor and track your progress. And, most importantly, pivot in accordance with the feedback.
This means that you need to measure your successes every week, then adapt according to what you get.
You’ll make mistakes, there will be difficulties, and hurdles. You must keep track of your progress so you can see what is successful and what isn’t. You can improve what’s working and what isn’t, as well as your strategy.
That’s how success is created. Design is the key to success, and not accidents.
These are five steps that will help you reach any goal you desire in 90 days. You will see a lot more success if you are focused on achieving one goal, and you commit to taking huge action within 90 days.
It only takes 90 days to change your life.
