We set goals for ourselves, and yet, there are times when we tend to feel frustrated because we can’t seem to achieve them. It can be a goal for work or personal matters, like setting up a site, organizing our room or even organizing our life. Goals are important because they help us somehow measure our own success. Everyone is always busy, but that is not an excuse not to make some changes that we know will be beneficial for us in the long run.
People that I speak with often and those that know me well know that I have a lot on my plate at times, and they often ask me how I get so much done. I must admit, there are days that I wish there was more than 24 hours, but I have learned to manage my time, and I just follow these tips here that help me get through the things I have committed to do:
1. Set your goal and start NOW! – I write my goals down. It is always helpful to be reminded of the things I need to accomplish. Try to start on them right away. It’s better not procrastinate as it will only delay your progress.
2. Don’t give in to distractions – You want to play games on Facebook? Tweet? I know it’s hard, but there are times when we need to focus. What I do is I schedule breaks within my time so that I can still enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures.
3. Learn everything you need to know – Take time to educate yourself more with information that will allow you to be effective and efficient with the goal you have set for yourself. There may be tools or applications you can use to make things easier.
4. Turn a big goal into bite sized tasks – This will allow you to avoid becoming overwhelmed with the tasks you need to finish. Write them down and then check or cross off your list the things you have already accomplished.
5. Push on until it is done – Finish the task. Revisit your goal, double check to see if you missed anything, rest, but make sure you work on it until it is completely done.
The tips are really simple. I hope they can help you achieve anything that you have set out to do for yourself.
