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 bedrepparttar 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 isrepparttar 145042 motivation part!)

Example: The goal I will be working on forrepparttar 145043 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 isrepparttar 145044 list I would writerepparttar 145045 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 listrepparttar 145046 greater you will achieve. Make it achievable not unreachable, thusrepparttar 145047 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’srepparttar deception we want to stay away from. It is a bad bad habit!

    Here are a few tips to start fresh!

    • Write your goal down. I know it's simple but it works! On a calendar, on a notebook, perhaps put a reminder in your computer to pop up everyday. Write it anywhere where you will be able to see it and where it will make an impact to encourage action. Action isrepparttar 145041 step that will ultimately finish your goal. Tip one: write it down

    • Break it down. Smaller steps are easier and more achievable. It makes you feel better because you actually did part of your goal. Give yourself a pat onrepparttar 145042 shoulder! Tip two: smaller goals = achievable.

    • Just do it. The action that will make your story a happy story. Not being fastidious here, just realistic. That’s where most of us fail (gym membership that you never use, correspondent course that ended without you, boxes that are still unpack after 2 years of moving in ect.). This is whererepparttar 145043 bad old habit disappears; it’s whenrepparttar 145044 action replacesrepparttar 145045 inertia. Tip three: Just do it.
