There is a kind of Fear that lurks within our conscious and subconscious minds that is not natural; and, worse, in the long run, it does us harm. This type of Fear is self-induced, pernicious and irrational. It works in stealth mode and its objective is simple: to keep Change and Growth at bay and keep you locked in your “Comfort Zone.” If you are ever going to advance in life and seek to be, do and have more, you must – necessarily – leave the cozy confines of your Comfort Zone. There is no other way. Period.
Monitoring and evaluating progress feedback is absolutely necessary if you are to reach your Goal, no matter how simple or how sophisticated (or grand) your Goal may be. By implementing and using an effective progress measurement system, you obtain the necessary and crucial FEEDBACK that advises you as to whether you or on course to reaching your goal, and if not, why not. If you cannot – or do not – monitor, measure and evaluate your progress AND take corrective, remedial ACTION as required, you will not Succeed and achieve your Goal. The ability to measure your progress towards a Goal and take appropriate Action is what directly leads to Success. Measurability is that important.
