If youre hearing the song that Bachman-Turner-Overdrive made famous in the 60s, thats exactly what I want! Im not talking about business in a strictly financial sense, but business with the idea that whatever youre shooting for success-wise, you complete your tasks.

Once you have a course plotted for success, there are going to be a million things that will vie for your attention and time. Its not that these things havent been there before now, and its not even that the world is plotting against you succeeding. Its just that now you have a focus and youll begin to notice things that seem like they shouldnt be on your radar screen.

It doesnt mean that you dont do the little pesky things that are buzzing and want to be taken care of (especially if it relates to your job), just that you must not let those things pull you off-track.

So how do you stay on-task? The best way Ive found, bar none, is to keep a log of tasks that must be accomplished as you move towards your goal. Remember to break the big tasks in to a series of small ones and to give yourself a reward-system as you do it. I use check-marks; others use stickers (sounds silly, but if it works for you, who cares?), still others use tangible rewards as they accomplish x number of small or large tasks.

Whatever motivates you is your keykeep it simple and keep it attainable. If the carrot is too far out in front of the horse, the horse will give up. If its just close enough to smell and see but just out of reach, that horse will keep moving towards the incentive.

Lets say your goal is to lose 60 pounds. Thats quite a chunk of weight and can take a long time to accomplish. Lets also say that you need a new wardrobe. Should you wait until all the weight is gone to buy those new clothes? Probably notyour current closet full of clothes will look awfully loose and ill-fitting if you do.

But lets talk about small, incremental rewards that help move you towards your goal. If you lose 10 pounds, your current clothes wont look baggy on you, but you will notice a difference in your waistband that might bother you. Dont chuck the pants or go buy a new pairtake the current ones to a seamstress or tailor to be taken in.

Its a small reward and saves you the money of buying new pants that you will continue to shrink out of. It also keeps you motivated. For the next 5 or 10 pounds, think about some new cosmetics or a new hairstylesmall things that will make you feel better, inside and out.

Take care of business and stay on task. Now thats the way to chart yourself to success!
