What are your goals for 2018? If you’re having trouble reaching them, we can help. Here are a few tips to help you reset so you can meet your goals.
Focus on smaller goals to reach big goals
When you put together a bookshelf, it’s impossible to jump from a pile of materials to the finished product. It’s a process, and it requires you to go one step at a time. The same is true with goals. To achieve a large-scale goal for the first time, it is best to work your way up through more manageable projects.
Even smaller goals can start to feel overwhelming at times. This is especially true if it’s something you don’t enjoy doing. Try to get one thing you hate to do, or that has been pressing on your mind, out of the way early on in your day. It won’t sit in the back of your head nagging you with guilt, and you can more easily move on to the next project.
What can you do each day?
There are a few steps you can take to help you continue making progress toward your overall goal. The first is to make the small goals part of your daily routine; this will make you more likely to work on them each day. Going along with that, it’s important to hold yourself accountable: if you didn’t meet yesterday’s small goals, add them to today’s goals so you don’t fall behind. Finally, keep your eyes open for obstacles and figure out how to address them.
Why is it important for this to be part of your daily routine? It’s simple: any goal you work on once a week or once a month is destined to be forgotten or pushed down on your priority list. When it becomes part of your routine, it will make a big difference; we can use habits to our advantage when setting goals.
How can a staffing agency help?
Your big goals may bring positive changes to your life, and you don’t want to miss out on that – and the small goals along the way can be very motivating, as well. By creating ‘micro goals’ and accomplishing them every day, you will get the ‘ding ding ding’ feeling of dopamine and keep charging on to accomplish your long-term ‘macro’ goal.
