As an experiment and in keeping in the spirit of New Year's wises, we are conducting an experiment in goal setting (wishes with deadlines). Much of what you will find here is based on "The Ultimate Success Formula" popularized by success coach Anthony Robbins. This is a simple sequence of actions for achieving a goal. They are as follows:
- Know what you want
- Take action toward it
- Examine the results of your action
- Adjust your approach
Know What You Want
Before you take off on your journey, you have to know where you want to end up.
What kind of results do you want?
You’ll find that the less wishy-washy you are about your destination, the better your chance of arriving there. You can’t just say things like, “I want to be a better”, “I want a nicer glasses”, “I want more exposure”, “I want a cool mystique”, or “I want to be a famous Architect”.
If you don’t have a good target, how can you possibly know when you’ve hit it?Here is a list of some things You could be famous for:
For winning a competition?
For interdisciplinary work & cultural criticism?
Diller + Scofidio
For evolving an old philosophy?
Tadao Ando (minimalism)
For drawing & sketching?
For your distinctive style of work?
For a designing a master piece?
For being part of a radical group
For an invention or developing a system.
