Can you believe that it’s already the end of March!? Like where on earth are the months going, I’ve had a great start to 2018 and I’m really enjoying myself. I’m quite positive that I’m on track to achieve the Goals that I set out in my Personal Goals and Blogging Goals. It’s all well and good setting Goals but it’s even better when you are able to accomplish them.
If you follow my Monthly Goals, you’ll know I’m doing quite well on achieving my Goals, I do have a couple of moments each month but don’t we all. Today, I wanted to share with you some of my tips on setting realistic and achievable goals. I know it’s nearing the end of March, but I feel if you’re struggling with your Goals at the moment, these tips could help you.
Write Your Goals Down
This might just be me, but I feel it is soo useful writing down your Goals, then you know exactly what you want to achieve, either for that month or year. This is also helpful for the reflection stage after you’ve reached that point. With my Monthly Goals, I reflect on those at the end of each month, this then helps me to write down new Goals. Always think about your successes when trying to achieve something.
Specifying exactly what you want to achieve is very helpful, you’ll be able to complete it a lot easier and quicker. Want to lose weight? How much weight would you like to lose? With being specific you know exactly what you are putting your mind to. This year I would love to read a total of 15 books, that sounds like a big number, but if I set myself a goal of reading at least 2 a month, I’ll complete this in no time!
Set Goals You Want to Achieve
Don’t set a goal that doesn’t make a difference in your life, Goals should relate to things that you want to change or improve. They shouldn’t be set just because it’s an interesting goal or it’s going to sound good when you tell people you’ve achieved it. It should mean something to your life and your life only. By completing this goal will it allow you to create a better life for yourself and those around you.
Having a hard day? Don’t think you’re going to achieve everything? We all have those bad days but you just need to push through and remember it’s a new day tomorrow. Keeping a positive attitude will definitely allow you to keep on track with your Goals, it also allows you to stay motivated. You can also keep yourself moving by remembering your successes and celebrating those.
Be Open to Change
There are things in your life that could stop you from achieving your Goals or implement a change. Don’t worry if you need to slightly adjust your Goals or anything to fit in with your life and decisions, this is okay, there’s a whole world your Goals could take you. Don’t think there’s just one path for your Goals, be open to the possibility of change and accept this.
I hope you have enjoyed this post! Let me know if any of these tips have helped you or have you got any helpful tips yourself? What works best for you to achieve goals?
