Zig Zag Principle – A Revolution in Goal Setting

Boundaries and Guardrails

  • Zigzagging requires great discipline and control. You need to establish boundaries and guardrails to prevent a personal train wreck. You must constantly look for dangers and pitfalls, and remain agile and in control. Keeping close track of your finances and your time is key for zig zaggers. Also key are people who will tell you when you are out of bounds and help you say no.
  • Be sure you are moving towards your goal rather than reacting to the demands of others. Your guardrails should be consistent with your values and your tolerance for risk. Rich gives examples of his personal guardrails. He also includes an Out of Bounds Worksheet.
