Motivation and goal settings –The to do list.Written by Lynne Dean
What is it that you need to do in order to be successful in your endeavor? One way to find out is to write a daily "To do list". This "To do list" will supplement your goal settings. It will simplify yours steps towards achieving your long term goal(s).
You can write your "To do list" while having breakfast or perhaps before going to bed night before. TIP: Writing a list before you go to bed not only will appease your mind for a good night sleep but will also start your day with a purpose (this is motivation part!)
Example: The goal I will be working on for next 3 weeks (it is said that it takes that long to change a habit, good or bad!), will be to regularly organize my home office (always a problem!).
This is list I would write night before (keeping in mind my main goal) Pick up dry cleaning Renew house insurance Phone Jim re: B-day party Mail out monthly invoice Archive file folder starting with letter A to C (if my goal would have been to lose a few pounds, I might have written go for a 20 min. walk or jog etc.)
The more specific your daily list greater you will achieve. Make it achievable not unreachable, thus daily "To do list", to break down your goal into smaller steps. Keep it Simple yet Meaningful till you reach your goal.
Got goals? Are they accomplished?Written by Lynne Dean
Most of us have goals.
Big ones, small ones. But not always do we follow through with them and that...hum…could be dangerous.
You see, within a lifetime our goals may change a little or dramatically, which is fine. The problem is when you have definite goals but can't follow through with them. It's crushing. It makes you feel miserable. As if you can't accomplish anything properly. You start something but it stays unfinished. That’s deception we want to stay away from. It is a bad bad habit!
Here are a few tips to start fresh!
