This notes-on-the-hand thing might be catching on

Here’s a guy who thinks we can all learn from Sarah Palin’s handoprompter, and he might be onto something:

Here’s how you can benefit from writing your top three goals on your hand every day:

  • Identification. It forces you think about what’s important and what you want. The simple act of writing your goals has a transformative effect.
  • Concentration. We have a limited amount of the other 8 hours in which we can direct our energy and resources. It helps stop the static and allows us to focus with intention at our most significant goals.
  • Commitment. By writing them on your hand instead of a Post-It note, it shows you are committed.
  • Declaration. By publicly displaying your goals you are putting a stake in the ground to those around you. You’re saying, “Look folks. This is what I believe and this is what I’m all about.”
  • Inspiration. Feeling down? Unmotivated? Simply look at your hand to immediately feel re-connected to what’s most important in your life.
  • I don’t necessarily agree that a note on the hand shows that much “commitment” unless it’s tattooed, but that’s a minor quibble.  Let us play.  What would you write on your hand as your top three goals for today?   Mine are:



    Silver, sell short

    The last one will be there to haunt me if it turns out to be unsuccessful.

      What, nothing about t3h kittehs? They are not going to be happy with you if they find out!

      JAB – The kittehs are low-maintenance, they only need to be fed every day. And since I read about how starving cats will devour their owner’s dead body, I don’t want to give them an excuse to kill me 😯

      Good morrow, all!
      The mistake Sarah made was that she was reading from her *left* hand. Everybody knows left = bad.
      Oh. Wait. That’s the notes continued on her *right* hand.
      Left = Bad
      Right = Good
      Rush = OK to say Retard.
      Well it beats pulling it out of her ass – CTZen

      mouthyorange – Those are goals worthy of being tattooed, not just scrawled with the old Sharpie 😉
