We make goals all the time, but they might be unreachable sometimes. They might be too difficult to achieve, or we’re just not making the right plan to achieve that goal. Whatever that goal may be, we can achieve it by breaking it down and making it more realistic. So, here are a few tips to help you achieve your goals.
The first thing you could do is actually write your goal down. Instead of just making a goal in your head, making it tangible and writing it down makes it easier to stick to that goal and not forget about it. When you make these goals, try being a bit more specific. For example, instead of saying “I want to eat more fruits and vegetables,” you can say that you want to eat at least 5 different fruits and vegetables every day. Another important aspect of goal-setting is to make sure you have short term goals. Sometimes we give ourselves long term goals, and while that’s great for the long run, it’s hard to not procrastinate. Instead, it’s easier to follow through when you make plans for the short term as well. In this short term, don’t set too many goals. Go one at a time. Even though it seems like it would take forever to reach all your goals, this way you can make sure that you actually reach each of your goals without any one being left out. Once you start working towards your goal, don’t just measure your progress. Instead, measure your actions as well. For example, if you want to lose weight, instead of checking your weight every day, keep track of your diet and exercise schedule. If these schedules meet your goals, then you’re in a great place!
When you make goals for yourself, make sure these are goals that you really want to achieve. If you make a goal because everyone else is doing it, it’ll be harder to achieve that goal. Make goals because you want to achieve them.
