Thank you for clicking and returning for this new post and if you are new here then welcome and join the family.
We all have goals that we want to achieve but usually it’s one thing or the other that stops us. In this post, I am referring to out more realistic goals.
I am going to give you the ultimate guide to achievements. If you are interested then keep reading.
I am to address three things that you will need if you want to achieve something.
A clear goal
This is probably the most important one out of the three. If you don’t have a clear goal then you would drown trying to do so much. When I was doing my A levels, we had to set SMART targets all the time. I didn’t like them but I have to admit, they really helped. It stands;
- S – smart
- M – measurable
- A – achievable
- R – realistic
- T – time bound
All this mainly means is having a goal that is perfectly clear so that you have something to focus on and something to work towards rather than being drowned in so much.
So, after you have set a clear goal, you need to be determined if not you won’t achieve anything. For instance, when I was finishing up my novel, I had to be determined. I had a goal which was to finish and publish my book. I had to incorporate determination in order to finish up my novel.
Determination is all about putting the work in. Set a schedule for yourself, make out time to do the project. Don’t let the day just pass by, make plans to be pro-active.
Last but not the least, you need focus. It may be easy to set the goal, it may even be easy to talk yourself into sitting at that place to do the work. The real hard work comes when you actually have to focus and do it. Take studying for instance, it is easy to pack your books that you are going to the library. It is easy to take all the highlighters and pens. The hard work comes in when you have to sit there for hours and actually study.
So, what I usually suggest is that you should observe yourself to understand how long your attention span is. How long can you stay focused on a project? This is because everyone is different. Some people can stay focused for an hour or two. Some can stay focused for thirty minutes or less. You need to understand you because only then will you be able to truly be pro-active.
Well, I hope this has been helpful.
Have an awesome week everyone and we’ll talk soon.
