An Easy 3-Step Goal-Setting Plan to Achieve Your Biggest Dreams



That's what I learned from Steven Kotler, one of the leading experts on workplace performance and author of the new book, The Art of Impossible. Kotler says his three-part strategy to achieving goals that seem impossible today is based on neuroscience and behavioral psychology.

Success has a formula and this is his.

Step 1: Identify your life's mission statement.

In an earlier book, Bold, Kotler and co-author Peter Diamandis introduced the concept of a massively transformative purpose (MTP). An MTP is the mission statement for your life. It fuels internal motivation and builds persistence in the face of adversity.

By definition, an MTP must be:

  • Massive (it's large and audacious).
  • Transformative (brings significant change to an industry, community, or planet).
  • Purpose-driven (sets a vision that gives your life meaning).

Next, break up the mission statement into smaller chunks.

Step 2: Set high, hard goals.

According to Kotler, big goals significantly outperform small goals, medium-size goals, and vague goals. Kotler defines big goals as "high, hard goals." These are sub-steps that will help you accomplish your ultimate purpose or MTP.
