Once I realized how simple and effective this method was in helping me with my own goals, I had to share it with others. And each time I found the same sequence of events. When I asked each person about how they'd achieve their goal, they gave me the same basic response. 'I know what I want, but I'm not really sure how to get it. I wouldn't know where to begin.' This was the general feel I got from each person I worked with. They were missing the details of their plan and the intensity for their goal. Then I asked them a question, just one question, and that changed everything. Before I ask you this same question, I have to warn you. Don't make the mistake of letting its simplicity fool you; it takes a sharp mind to recognize the power of a simple truth.
After asking the initial questions about their goals and listening to their response, I followed with this scenario: 'What would you do if you had only 90 days to achieve yourgoal or you would lose what you cared about most forever?' Wow. This one question put quite a twist on things. Lose the most important thing in your life forever? With this ultimatum presented I got a different response, a better response. As soon as the question sank in the answers started flying. What was a foggy idea only minutes before became a clearand focused objective with amazing intensity behind it. Every single person I asked had a list of things they would do to reach their goal, and the drive in their eyes made it clear that they meant it.
