Growing is the only way we get to where we dream to be. Growth is hard. Sometimes even painful. Learning is growing, and it’s hard to keep track of where you are on your path. The only way to really measure the success of your growth is to have goals. Use measurable goals to help you along the way.
We all get an idea of who we want to be, and what we want to do. The second you think about it, you are energized and ready to take it on. Following through in life is a real task. Following through for yourself when you don’t have anyone holding you accountable for your goal management is the real task.
We know that vigilance and consistency areÂ what is necessary to watch a goal come to fruition. Although we frequently find ourselves in that situation, we can take steps to overcoming many of the motivational challenges that accompany them. Regardless of the goal, we are undoubtedly not the first person to attempt it. Research what you want to do, and plan a step-by-step list of how you’ll tackle your goal. Reward yourself for your handwork. Most importantly, keep track of your progress. Time flies, so stay busy with it and you will be one step closer to the person you want to be. [via]
