James Corrigan writes about the McIroy Method (my choice of word) for goal setting.
“Rory McIlroy: My 2015 goals are written on the back of my boarding pass”
Keep it simple stupid
Rory’s goal-setting process may sound simplistic for those who’ve been there done that, read the books and maybe even paid megabucks to go see a seminar. However there’s the chance that the same seminar junky has heard the same or similar guru advising him or her to KISS – Keep it simple stupid.
Fix and forget
Given that the young man has used this simple process for several years and met with considerable success I have to assume that somehow his goals must reach his subconscious so that he remembers them.
James writes,” I (Rory) put it in my wallet and I memorise them. But I don't get it out of my wallet until the end of the year and then see how well I've done.”
Come the year end it’s all over for Rory
Rory says “I haven't kept those boarding cards - once I don't need them anymore, they are just discarded. It's funny the numbers of the seat have gradually gotten less and less… 13B, 12A, it’s been nice. And yes, this one in my back pocket is 1A. One day I won't need a boarding pass - that’s the ultimate.”
Having reached seat 1a simultaneously with becoming the world’s No 1 I find it remarkable that the young man doesn’t have a private jet. There must be a wee bit of frugal Scottish blood in him or maybe he’s just awaiting the outcome of the forthcoming court case where he is reported as saying,
“I’ll just have to get up there and tell the truth, “That’s all I need to do.”
