🐺 Take it from the Wolf
Although Jordan Belfort had his rough moments, there’s no denying that he reached an immeasurable amount of success in a short amount of time. The question is, how did he do it? The Wolf was known for his clear, concise, and aggressive strategies when it comes to achieving goals not only for himself but for others. Here are his six secrets to smash through your obstacles:
Sure, you can count the outcome of your goal as a reward, but is that your only motivation? Try setting financial incentives or some time off for yourself so you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s true, the only good goals are measurable! What’s being measured is being managed. Make sure you keep track of tangible progress during your work.
If there’s no end, you’ll never get there. Set a time for your goal to be achieved.
Once you have the basics down, think about the resources you need to achieve your goal. Is it a set of books? Is it access to a treadmill? Preparing makes a big difference!
Having an accountability partner that you trust can make or break you during rough patches. Find a friend or family member that will check in on your progress.
Last but not least, adding incentive to give back can push you even closer to following through with your goals. When someone or something you're passionate about is on the line, you’ll feel the pressure. For example, if you enjoy the feeling of seeing your friends happy, why not make it a reward to take them out for dinner?
⚙️ Try a little Agile
In order to set an accurate goal, sometimes we need to work backward or even change the approach. Agile makes this a reality! Instead of making a goal and “running with it”, we need to make mini-goals along the way. This can make that big goal seem a lot smaller while providing flexibility to work around whatever life throws at you.
🗃 You NEED Kanban Now
Having multiple goals can lead to “goalception”, but not any more. Kanban is an organizational workflow tool that allows us to track different stages of the process. It consists of 5 simple columns: backlog, to-do, in progress, awaiting approval, and complete. Each column is self-explanatory and easy to track! Simply use post-it notes or software like Trello to move your actions around during each stage of the process.
📄 In Conclusion
Setting and achieving goals is hard, but easy with the right tools. By replicating what others have proven successful in the past, you can have some success of your own! When using Agile to split big goals into smaller pieces, anything becomes possible. Did we mention Kanban makes it all easy to track in one place too?

“He (Jordan Belfort) was known and scientifically proven to make the most millionaires the fastest, within a matter of months. Today I will be teaching you that same methodology.”
“If you have a yearly goal, how can you break it down to make it a monthly goal? Then do it again by breaking it down into a weekly goal until it’s a daily thing that you can do”
“Next is Groundwork, write down what you need to achieve your goal. If it was to make more money, then tell yourself, ‘I need to be posting on LinkedIn 2 times a week’.”
