You are so tired.
Because you have been working VERY HARD for longer than you can remember.
And even though you have been reaching your goals lately…
you seem to only be a FEW INCHES closer to your dream.
Your small victories are barely noticeable in the big picture…
and you feel too EMBARRASSED to tell anyone about it.
To be quite honest…
You are FED UP by working your b*tt off for peanuts…
and you DON`T KNOW for how long you are able to keep on going.
Does that sound familiar?
Yeah, I`ve been there too.
And I know it`s not a very pleasant place to be in.
When I discovered the DUMB goals approach, it was a total GAME CHANGER.
Let me show you how to become winner by using the DUMB goals system.
But first, let me talk briefly about WHY you probably AREN`T achieving the big progress you want.
You have probably heard about the SMART goals approach.
It seems that in some cases SMART goals are dumb and DUMB goals are smart (yeah, it`s little tongue twister, I know).
Quick recap, SMART goals stands for:
- Time specific
There are several positive benefits regarding SMART goals.
However, there can also be SERIOUS crippling consequences if you ONLY use the SMART goals approach.
The SMART Goals approach is a two-edged sword…
and the exact results from using the approach that can benefit your life , are also the same results that can RUIN your future.
A short recap, using the SMART goals approach is great if you want to set REALISTIC goals that you KNOW you can reach.
On the other hand…
The downside of using the SMART goals approach is…
Can you guess what the negative side with SMART goal setting is?
If you answered that your goals are realistic, and it will not push you out of your comfort zone and reach you truly amazing potential, you are correct.
A flying awesome high five to you *SLAP*
SMART goals approach can function as a straightjacket.
It can totally CHOKE your potential:
- No need for you to push yourself outside the COMFORT ZONE to discover unknown territory
- No need for you to gain EXPERIENCE and personal development
- No need for you to realize that you actually can do BETTER than you THOUGHT
- No need for you to increase your CONFIDENCE by mastering new activities
- No need for you to discover that you are GOOD ENOUGH and you can play with the big boys and girls
A short recap, the downside of using the SMART goals approach is that it`s limiting your achievement, experience, personal development and TRUE POTENTIAL.
DUMB goals stands for:
- Massive cojones
- Barely attainable

Let me elaborate…
If you had a magic wand and you could wave it and wish to achieve whatever you put your mind to, what would you wish for?
The answer to that question is a dreaming goal.
Most people are so afraid of failing, that they will not set a goal that is hovering to high, because they might not reach it.
It`s like a plant, if the plant doesn`t stretch towards the sun, it will not grow.
The goal should give you a positive feeling.
When you think about already having achieved it, it should give you a good tingling feeling in your stomach.
You will be glad when you reach your goal, and it will benefit yourself or / and others on a big scale.
Cojones is the Spanish word for balls.
Sometime it is important to have the guts and courage to do whatever it takes to reach your goal, no matter what the risk of failing is, as long as it is worth it.
No great invention or legendary deed has ever been performed by not having the guts.
Brian Tracy says that the only difference between the hero and the coward is that the hero sticks in there five minutes longer.
The goal should be attainable in a long shot.
Because it`s a dreaming, uplifting goal which requires mega balls to achieve.
The best thing is that it forces you to stretch higher than your normally would and thereby grow your potential.
Rome wasn`t built by using the smart goals approach.
When Colonel Harland Sanders at the age of 65 years went to sell his chicken recipe to restaurant owners, he didn`t do it by using the smart goals approach. He knocked on 1009 doors until he finally got his first YES. The Chain is today called Kentucky Fried Chicken.

You might be thinking, “Okay, Tor I get it. You have created the DUMB goals approach. But is it just theory?”
A great question.
I have not only created this approach, I have also put it to the TEST several times with great success.
How DUMB goals skyrocket my success
Long story short: several years ago when I was only setting realistic goals, I only accomplished small achievements…
and to be quite honest it was WEARING ME OUT.
I felt that no matter how many hours I put in and how hard I worked…
I was barely moving towards my big hairy goal.
Then I started started to experiment with the DUMB goals approach.
Did it work? Judge for yourself…
