Lesson Transcript

Simone: How do you go from failure to achieving your language goals for 2013?
Simone: Welcome to an Innovative Language Learning Sunday News! I'm Simone and I'll be hosting today's Sunday news with my co-host, the founder of Innovative Language... Peter!
Peter: Hi everyone! Peter here.
Simone: In this Sunday News, all you need to know about reaching your language learning resolution is here. Tune in to find out more!
Peter: 2013 is here, so lets talk New Years resolutions.
Simone: Listeners, what’s your new year’s resolution?
Peter: And how will you make sure you succeed?
Simone: A lot of people fall short... don’t they?
Peter: They do. Even I almost failed my 2012 resolution of learning Chinese.
Simone: So what happened? Did you achieve it?
Peter: Simone, I smashed through my resolution. Do you know how I did it?
Simone: Uh, oh. Listeners, listen up because this is a GREAT lesson.
Peter: A few simple changes to my goal made a massive difference.
Simone: Like what?
Peter: I started aiming for smaller, more measurable goals. For example: I changed my New Year’s resolution from “Master Chinese” to “Speak 10 Minutes of Chinese per study session with my tutor”
Simone: Smart! You can’t expect to magically become fluent. You put a number on it.
Peter: No magic here, Simone. Once I made that small change, I hit my goal in 3 months and extended 10 minutes to 15 then 20...and now I’m up to 30 minute conversations. I’m blown away at how easy it was once I changed my mindset.
Simone: What are a few other changes you made that our listeners can copy in 2013?
Peter: Write down your new measurable goal and place it somewhere where you’ll see it everyday. It sounds a little strange, but it keeps you focused on your goal.
Simone: And that doesn’t just apply to language learning but really, any goal you’re trying to achieve in life!
Peter: It works Simone. So, listeners, take these tips and apply them right now..

This was excellent timing. Here in Germany it was a dark, rainy Sunday afternoon. The best time for learning a language. But JapanesePod101 was all red "because of scheduled downtime". Why should someone subscribe for a service, which is not available?


BTW, most other sites have the technical skills to announce a "scheduled" downtime in advance.
