bythemethod.com is an online retreat centre. We provide a comprehensive set of tools for taking stock of your life and then building a happy and fulfilling future.
The secret of success is to set goals and work to achieve them. We help you set those goals and then we encourage you to achieve them.
- Identify where you are today so you can build your tomorrow.
Build a 'purpose statement' that will be your springboard for getting started on your quest for a better life. This is a summary of where you are now and is the source of your strength for moving forwards. By writing this down you set a process in motion that will bring you the chance of a whole new life.
- Plan your future.
You will create a 'vision statement' that will inspire you to achieve. Your 'vision statement' should be the heart of your inspiration for getting what you have always dreamed of. When you record this vision statement and review it regularly you have the basis for some real motivation. Motivated people have a reason for why they are doing what they do, your vision is your reason.
- Set goals for success.
We provide a way for you to set yourself goals that will make a real impact on your life. You will learn how to set goals that really work for you. Writing these goals down is important if you are going to commit to fulfilling them.
- Save yourself some time and maximise your energy.
Setting goals helps you focus your time on what is important. You can't make more time but you can make better time. Goals also help you focus your important energy and resources on success.
- Share your future plans with others.
We will provide you with your own page where you can share your purpose, vision and goals with others. The more people you can tell about what you want the more likely you are to get it.
- Get inspired
We will encourage you in fulfilling your goals. Through some simple encouraging words or by seeing your progress you will discover a whole system of encouragement that is so important for those who are trying to achieve.
- Get reminders of what you are doing
You can get regular email reminders to help encourage you to succeed at your aims. For success you need to be persistent in your efforts. Reminders can help you when you need that extra nudge to keep going.
For paid members
- Discover the strengths you already posses for making your dreams come true.
We have many tools to help you discover your strengths and identify the resources you have for building your dream future. These tools then become part of your 'purpose statement'. Knowing your strengths is at the core of your future. You can only start with what you have already got.
- Set clear and achievable goals that inspire you to success.
Our powerful goal analysing tools will make suggestions as to how your goals can be improved. These tools are exclusive to this site and provide a powerful way to help you create goals that help you succeed.
- More time and even more energy.
The better focused your goals are the better use you make of your time. Time is the most valuable resource you have available - even small amounts of it can make a big difference. Research shows, however, that using more time for a task doesn't make the task more successful. The successful tasks are those where time has been used effectively. The better formed your goals are the more inspired you will be to do them and the more inspired you are the more energised you become. The more energised you are the better use you will make of your time.
- See your future in a positive way.
Our extra vision building tools will help you analyse your view of the future and suggest ways you can make the statement more inspiring. You need a vision that is as clear and as positive as possible. Without this inspiration you are unlikely to succeed. Successful people have a strong idea of what direction they are heading in - they understand what is necessary to make them happy. The better your vision is the more likely you are to succeed.
- Dream big to achieve more.
We will help you plan a journey that will take you to even greater heights of success. By having longer range goals (that we call journeys) you will be able to tackle the things that can make a very real difference to your life. Don't settle for just the simple things but take on something big and let us help you plan a way to success in even the big things.
- Make comprehensive plans for even greater success.
We will provide powerful project planning tools to help you work towards your greatest goals. Using our tools you will be able to break down your big goals (journeys) into smaller chunks which we call projects. These can then be broken down in to goals which you can work on. You will see your progress through the projects and will get real inspiration when it is needed most.
- Take control of your whole life
We also provide a tool that can help you take control of the whole of your life. Our 'my life' tool will help you think through what you want your life to be like from four different perspectives. You will take control over these areas and discover the secrets of building a happy and fulfilling life.
- Get detailed reminders of what you are doing
We provide more comprehensive control over your email reminders for those people who take out a paid membership. Get reminders when they would give you the most benefit.
The site is made up of a series of rooms at a virtual retreat centre. Each room has a purpose and tools to help you succeed. Free members get access to some of the rooms and a few of the tools but paid members get access to the whole thing.
