Tips for Reaching Goals
I recommend the following steps to help you achieve your goals. I’ve tried these techniques over the years, and they’ve been very successful for me.
- Break up large goals into small goals. Breaking up large goals into smaller goals can help you achieve them. For example, if your goal is to write a novel in 2013, set small goals to reach it, such as “write 10 pages weekly.”
- Make a plan. Benjamin Franklin once said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” It’s difficult to reach a goal if you don’t know the steps involved in reaching it. For example, if you wish to lose 10 pounds, you must plan your caloric intake and exercise in order to achieve this goal.
- Take action. If you fail to take action on the plan that you’ve built, you are unlikely to achieve your goals. Get motivated. Give yourself a pep talk. Do whatever it takes to get there.
- Track your progress. Take note of your progress or lack of it. This allows you to adjust your plan as necessary if it’s not working. It also motivates you to stick with the plan if you’re seeing results.
Keep in mind that it’s important to set realistic goals. For example, if your goal in 2013 is to become a multi-millionaire, you might be very disappointed at the year’s end.
