Reaching your goals can be the toughest part of any year. I found five easy tricks that help you reach the goals you’ve set yourself.
“A dream written drown with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by actions makes your dream come true.” – Greg Reid
Before you get started make sure you know what each goal you have entails. Envision it clearly and write it down. This will make it easier in the long run to see what you have to do in the early stages of your goals.
Set no more than three to five goals to achieve in a year. Sometimes we underestimate the work that has to go into our goals. So it’s better to have fewer goals than you would think you want to have. If you have achieved all of your goals you can always add more throughout the year. Also, sometimes goals can build on each other.
Make sure you know why you set your goals. It is much more likely that you achieve your goals if you have emotion and will behind it. You need to make sure you really want to reach your goals and you have to make sure you doing it for you, not for anyone else.
Identify what you have to do and slowly make it into a habit so that it is not much of a task but rather something you do everyday. I have read somewhere that it takes 21 days to make something a habit, so don’t put yourself down when it doesn’t work right away.
Check-in on your progress once in a while. This will immensely help you actually achieve your goals. You can always change it around a little. Sometimes what we do to achieve our goals need a little adjusting, checking in once in a while makes sure we stay on the right track.
But remember sometimes you have to work harder than you thought. Instead, focus on the progress you already have made. Learn more instead of doing more, worry less about failing at get your head in the game and always make sure to be kinder to yourself.

Second chances are always appreciated in our lives whether it’s a second chance at a relationship or a career or to rebuild. I can honestly say I have gotten a few second chances in life especially after my Suicide attempt in 2007. At that point in my life which I was in my mid-twenties I […]

The continuing threat of Coronavirus has no doubt contributed in accelerating the demise of notes […]
