Four Tips for Achieving Your Goals
These are the four tips for achieving your goals that we find quite useful from day to day.
Make a to-do roadmap to success
Start by envisioning what it is you want. Then break down how to get there as well as what resources will be needed along the way. Allow yourself time for each task and begin your timeline. Make an itemized list of what you will need. Contact anyone that you will be needing help from at the very beginning of your project so you will know their availability and if a replacement is necessary. Don’t forget to give yourself plenty of breaks and always pat yourself on the back for the little achievements along the way.
Surround yourself with successful people
Build a strong support system filled with others who want to see you succeed, a network of like-minded individuals who are masters of their fields. Always keep in mind that you are directly influenced by those you surround yourself with. Hang up pictures of other successful people, such as mentors or people that inspire you.
Far too often are we distracted by things like television or friends and end up putting our goals on the backburner. The key to staying focused is to shut out all surrounding distractions. Turn off the radio or television, and don’t forget the cell phone if possible. Don’t wait until the last minute to do anything! Allot a certain amount of time to do each of your sub-goals on your to-do list. Follow the golden rule of if you start something, see it through until you are finished.
One of the most misused practices for achieving your goals is the multitask. People often believe that if you take on more things at a time and the faster you work the more you get done, when you are actually leaving yourself vulnerable to shotty work and poor performance. Starting one thing at a time and seeing it through to its end at a reasonable pace allows you to stay focused and less room for error.
