(psychology) Motivational speaker Gavin Ingham interviews goal setting expert Andy Smith, part 2

10. Is there anything else you would recommend people to do, read or look at?

It's definitely worth taking a course like the four-day 'Create The Life You Want' workshop which is also the first part of the NLP Practitioner training - it's one thing to read about goal-setting methods, but you really have to experience them in practice to get the best from them.

There's a lot of interesting research on goals and motivation coming out of the Positive Psychology movement at the moment - you can keep up with it on my 'Practical EQ' blog.

And, if coming on one of our courses is not practicable for you at this time, why not get together with some of your friends and form an Achieve Your Goals book group so you can support each other as you work through the exercises? Social support is a key component of goal achievement that makes it much easier for most of us - you don't have to do it all by yourself!

As you can see, goal setting can form a key element in keeping yourself on track and focused. If you want more from Andy we also conducted an audio interview which will be available from my shop in the next few weeks. In the meantime, why not take some time out to review and revise your goals? I look forward to hearing of your successes.
