The 12 Week Year: Get More Done in 12 Weeks than Others Do in 12 Months.
Moran explains that by creating and tracking goals quarterly, you can track your progress better, change course sooner if something isn't working, develop clear action plans and measurable follow-up.
You can still have annual goals, but the idea is to break the bigger goals into smaller ones with actionable items. The Daily Greatness Journal includes a space for your 'Why' as well as a place to list 5 actions for each goal. If you're not ready to be serious with your goal setting and follow through, then this book is not for you.
I spent a lot of time on the pre-work (goals, plans, values, etc) and started tracking my daily, weekly, monthly activity, ideas and plans, but found that I wasn't resonating with some of the areas. For example, each day it asks you to list four things about you saying "I am ____". And you do this four times, every day. While this started off OK, it quickly got repetitive and uninspiring.
The journal is not really meant to be toted around as it is hefty and substantial. I keep it at my desk and am considering other ways to make it more customized and useful to me, such as using Washi and stickers to treat more like a Traveler's Notebook, or my Hobonichi, which is my new favorite. I'll keep you posted on that!
