Are Excuses And Bad Moods Controlling Your Goals?
Finding that sense of accomplishment
It seems like a pretty basic, and common topic that fits all of our lives. The idea of having short term goals, and getting them accomplished seems like an easy, cut and dry idea. However sometimes it feels like the things that look so easy, are the most difficult things to get accomplished. Procrastination, is a great enemy for all of us when it comes to getting through our goals. Sometimes we have to just look at the picture as a simple step by step process.
If looking to successfully accomplish the goals we have from day to day, we have to first ask ourselves if we have taken the time to clearly define what the actual goal is. This can actually be a step that we skip believe it or not, because we can often find that we are haphazardly choosing what our goals are, without putting total thought or reflection into it. Like everything in the world, it is as if we feel like we are in such a rush, that we fail to give even our own personal goals the full attention that is needed.
Are our goals realistic? If so, how difficult may the steps be? Even if seem to be difficult, that doesn’t mean unattainable. We have to identify what is really necessary to get our goals accomplished. When we are more aware, and better prepared for the most difficult parts of the process, we have much better chances of getting through the harder parts in a much smoother fashion.
Some may say that I actually take it overboard when it comes to writing things down, however I have always had a habit for putting everything in writing, especially when it comes to being able to put everything down as a list, and seeing the necessary order and process in a step by step way. Having things arranged in an order of doing things works well for me, and probably others as well. Often times I have not always had the most perfect of memories without countless reminders. So for me, this part helps me a lot.
I have come to notice that this technique of writing down my plans, and the actions that are needed seem to help in ways like committing to the goals each step of the way. Instead of looking at everything as just one big goal, I look at it as many small steps. I think it keeps me more organized, and it betters my chances for seeing through the accomplishment.
Another key aspect that many of us don’t even realize is the idea of doing this process, no matter what how we may feel. Don’t base getting these goals accomplished on the mood we may be in at any particular time. An excuse of having a bad mood can greatly stall us very often.
It is the greatest excuse in the world, to have an excuse.
A sense of accomplishment can take us a long way on our journey. It is so often that we actually feel down upon ourselves, because of the struggle or inability to get something done.
This isn’t rocket science by any means. Instead this just offers a personal reminder and a sense of awareness to our habits and ways of daily living. It is nice to get to a place where we can pat ourselves on our back when we get things done the right way. There is nothing wrong with feeling good about oneself. When you end your day with accomplished goals, than you can be sure that it will be nice to lay your head down, and sleep with confidence.
