I recently told my friend my plan for writing my goals down in a systematic way to record manageable tasks. Just like I shared with you in Episode 2. He asked me from when did I come up with this idea and new-found motivation... Well, I hadn't thought about that. So, I thought, and I realized that it was from when we went to the US for vacation. A simple break in your daily routine can hit the reset button on your mind and how you think. It's a perfect time to start a new routine.
I took two things away from this conversation.
A very useful method when it comes to achieving goals and objectives is to write down DAILY MANAGEABLE TASKS to achieve... every day. Writing goals down is essential, but only writing down a final goal could be a bit intimidating. This is why writing down manageable daily tasks toward your goal could give you the motivation that you need. This sets the target in front of you tomorrow's specific steps.
A method that works well for me is to write three tasks on my window (with erasable marker). One task is in one color (I use red), this is the mandatory task. I have to get this task done. The other two tasks are written in another color (I use blue). These are tasks that I have to get done as well, but they are a bit more flexible. If something comes up, or I want to work on a different thing, I can. As long as I get the red task finished.
I usually find that writing these tasks makes me very focused, and I finish all three of the tasks and much more. I talk about it more below.
Let me know what works for you.
my 2017 goal
By the end of 2017, I will be able to become self-employed with online work. And we will be able to move to a different place. This includes teaching, YouTube, producing courses, etc.
