[01:44] Igor’s Goal-Setting Philosophy:

  • Having one significant, overarching goal is crucial for me. My mind requires that single target to stay focused. Of course, this primary goal can encompass several smaller ones, which is fine as long as I maintain my concentration on the main objective.

  • Short-term goals, on the other hand, don’t play a prominent role in my approach.

  • I don’t actively sit down and jot down specific goals. Instead, I function like a challenge-driven Terminator, spotting and immediately wanting to solve the obstacles in front of me. 

[06:44] The Significance of Deadlines:

  • When the weight of bills and the realization that financial resources may not last as long as life itself hits you, it becomes an ever-present concern. The thought of running out of money before retirement looms in your mind, causing constant worry throughout the day.

  • This sense of urgency propels individuals to focus on that goal tirelessly until they achieve it. It’s logical because the sudden realization of needing to retire at a certain age, coupled with the awareness of insufficient savings, demands immediate action to secure a comfortable retirement. 
  • Unlike the Greek goal-setting approach where some may wait for things to happen organically, I find it somewhat passive to rely solely on arbitrary deadlines appearing on the horizon.

  • Instead, an effective way to achieve your aspirations and cultivate motivation lies in setting personally meaningful deadlines.

  • These deadlines should carry significance and impact, such as securing a comfortable retirement or providing for one’s family. Embracing these goals with unwavering belief propels individuals toward success and empowers them to take action without delay.

  • Without any genuine consequence attached, these goals can lack the necessary drive to push us forward.
  • To truly make goals work, they must have substantial and tangible consequences. Whether it’s financial security for our family, personal growth potential, or securing our retirement years, the consequences need to be significant enough to spur us into action.
  • With this philosophy in mind, I advocate for setting one major long-term goal with a meaningful deadline and consequence. Simultaneously, we stay focused on the immediate challenges that demand our attention and efforts. By adopting this approach, we can navigate our journey toward success with purpose and determination.
