How often do you get to the end of the week and feel like you haven’t achieved what you wanted to?
How often do you set yourself a goal which involves so many steps to achieve it that it becomes overwhelming and you can’t muster the energy to even start?
Let’s start simple. Let’s set three simple goals that we can achieve by the end of the week. Little things that won’t need lots of overwhelming steps or masses of energy to complete.
Think of the productivity tasks that we’ve already completed together this month – we’ve achieved quite a lot together! What do you want to achieve over the next 3/4 days? Are there any other tasks that you’ve been procrastinating over like the one we attacked together on day 7? Or could you carry out another ’27 things’ task like on day 3, this time you could conquer a different room of your home. What about making a meal plan for next week like on day 5?
Whatever you choose, make sure it’s achievable by the end of the week. You don’t want to set yourself up for failure.
Now write down your goals; perhaps in a memo on your phone or stick a note on your fridge door. Think about which task you could achieve today – now go ahead and get on with it. There’s no time like the present!
What are you going to focus on – let us know in the comments below.
For those of you who’ve been inspired to set some simple goals, either now or in the past, how did it go? How do you feel now that you’ve done it? Add your comments below.
