Nudge of the Week: Visualize the Future, then Write It Down

The Olympics are starting soon, so let’s think about the training of elite athletes.

One common advice from athletes is that they visualize the future. They see themselves winning the gold, scoring the goal, or landing the jump.

Visualizing your own success is important. But even more important is to write it down, preferably on the specific date in a calendar. This way, you can now work backwards from your future goal, and understand all the specific steps you need to take starting from today.

Knowing exactly what you want, and what you need to do to get it, will put you on the path to success.
