Become an Expert at Following Through On Personal Goals
Posted Friday, May 7, 2010 by
There’s no shortage of websites, blogs, books or magazines that emphasize the importance of setting and following though on personal goals.
You can also bet that a lot of people fall short of the mark they set for themselves. It’s not due to a lack of character, but rather a lack of knowledge on how to set and follow through on both short-term and long-term goals.
Here’s what you’ll need to succeed:
Create a Master Plan
You have to take the time to create a master plan of how you’d like to accomplish your goals and dreams. Dream big! But make sure you set goals that can be acknowledged one step at a time.
Write Your Goals Down Where You Can See Them
Even if you know mentally what your goals are, it helps to write them down where you can find and review them daily. Seeing your goal right there in front of your face somehow makes it more real and doable.
Plan and Complete Small Steps if Necessary
Try and move forward daily. Even a little bit of progress at a time is better than no progress at all. Don’t over-analyze to the point of paralyzing yourself from acting. A goal can often seem so overwhelming as to make it near impossible for some people to know where to start. Make a plan and execute it.
Acknowledge Your Own Progress
The road ahead can sometimes be a tough haul. However, when you look back it’s easy to see how far down the path you’ve come. Relish your progress and give yourself a pat on the back.
