Goal setting is no small job. But goal achieving? Yup, that’s even tougher. Here, six things that are continually preventing you from getting sh*t done.
Think about it: Without dedicating actual time to finishing the great American novel, it’s pretty impossible to move the needle and get anything done. A solid technique for finding the time? Pinpoint your golden hour and focus from there.
Sometimes it’s as simple as saying out loud, "I really need to lose ten pounds." The minute you loop the person you spend the most time with in on your plan, you empower them to play a part in helping you achieve your goal.
You’d like to sink some extra cash into your savings this month, but unless you pinpoint an exact amount (say $500), it’s pretty impossible to keep tabs on the progress you’ve made toward your goal.
It’s a common problem: You have so many different things you’d like to achieve. Just stick with training for that 10K and forget about learning to knit (for now). It will help minimize distractions so you can keep your eye on the prize.
Your BFF peer pressures you into one more glass of wine, even though she knows you’re trying to eat healthy this month. Stay strong—and remember it’s A-OK to say no.
Fear of failure sucks. But as cliché as it sounds, never trying is even worse. Baby steps. And remember, as long as you don’t document it on social media, no one has to know your goal didn’t work out.
