Achieving your goals isn’t so difficult how some may think. Goals are achieved little by little, it is based on daily choices.
Your goals won’t happen if you don’t put in the effort each day. As these little steps pile up, we will see real change. Don’t stress yourself. Be calm and with a clear head.
One of the important things, when it comes to goals, is to stay motivated. And in a world with more distractions than ever before, this is really up to your motivation. You need to know why you’re having these goals! Remind yourself of the reason why you set your goals!
You don’t want to be filled with regret at some point down the line because you didn’t follow through on something you really wanted. You don’t want to feel like you failed at achieving the things that are important to you, all because you couldn’t manage to stay on track.
One of the most common reasons that people don’t get to accomplish their goals is because of distractions, and lose the idea of important things that need to be done consistently in order to move forward.
1. Write your goals on paper. – Transcribe them into your computer, tablet. Do not forget your calendar.
2. Create a vision board. – Be creative and don’t just write a list. Once done, stick it where you will see it most. The most obvious your goals are, the easier it becomes for you to remember what are you working for.
3. Review your goals daily. – Discipline yourself to keep checking where you are in your goals every day and check your progress really achieve any goal until it’s accomplished.
4. Paste reminders on the wall. – You can paste on the fridge, on the desk…
5. Set alarm. – The simpler way is, of course, to set up the alarm on your cell phone.
6. Be accountable. – Hire a life coach to keep yourself accountable. Some people ask a friend to keep them accountable, but my opinion is that still may not be enough…
7. Focus on progress. – Don’t expect perfection you are human not God. Focusing on your progress—those small, daily steps—shows you where you’ve improved.
8. Keep track of the small wins. – Write somewhere your wins. Can be “you’ve followed your plan for an entire month”.
9. Celebrate your progress. – You can reward yourself every week, two weeks, or month, whatever feels right to you. Rewards will encourage you to keep going.
Forgetfulness is one of the hidden enemies of productivity.
All you need to remember is to review your goals regularly, break things down into manageable steps, make it measurable and finally track your time working on your goals.
