With so many different things going on at any moment or any time of the day don't you ever feel like you have a bit of an overload alert?
On top of all your goals that you want to achieve and have to complete by the end of the day there's also so much information we have to sort through and with the advancement of the internet which is at the tips of our fingers at all times it makes it harder to find quality information if you don't know where to look.
I certainly feel overwhelmed sometimes when I want to find specific information about something and then I have loads of sites to search through or have a pile of papers to do (or blog posts to write).
We only have 24 hours in a day, ideally 7 or 8 of those are sleeping hours (but most of us probably only get 5), that leaves you with 16 or 17 hours to work with. Then you add eating, commuting and break/rest time which adds up to 4 hours at the least. That leaves you with a remainder of 12 or 13 working hours if you're lucky. Of course everyone's schedule is different and most of you might have kids and a wife or husband who take up even more time.
How is it possible to reach your full potential with only 13 hours in the day at the most? There are a few things that I've been doing lately to help me achieve my goals. Now, I'm far from being an expert in this field but I do know that these tips I'm going to share with you have helped me a lot. I've learned most of these tips from my previous review of 'Second Chance - Robert Kiyosaki' which you can check in the link. I've also learned from other people around me as well as from reading books everyday.
So here are three simple tips that you can make part of your habit to give you some tools to help you to achieve your own goals.
1. Write your goals down.
I hated this at the time! I felt like it was stupid, but now that I've matured (a little) I realize that writing my goals down actually does help tons in achieving them even if I never look at the list again in my life. Once I write something down I already make a mental note that sticks in my head and if I ever forget what the goal was I can go back to my list and double check that I'm on the right track.
Lately I have been doing this A LOT and it has made a huge difference in my productivity. I start by writing down my short term goals as a checklist (daily and weekly) along with my long term goals on a separate sheet of paper. This has helped me to sort through my ideas and do the things that I want to accomplish. It may seem very elementary to do this but if you look at any person that is already successful most of them definitely write their goals down.
It may not work the same way for you but if you've never tried this then I suggest giving it a shot. You never know whether something will work until you try. You could even adapt my tip to however would work best for you.
So why not do it too?
NOTE: Make sure you don't make the mistake of making a goal and then not committing to it. Goals are meant to make you work harder to get what you want.
2. Focus on one thing at a time.
Another great thing about cutting multitasking out of your bad habit is the fact that if you accomplish your goals for the day you can get that extra deserved leisure time for catching up on Game of Thrones before the new season comes out or whatever your heart may desire.
