July is fast approaching. Did you execute everything you wanted for the first half of 2018? Are you on track to hit those New Year’s Resolutions out of the park?
Most people set goals that have no meaning. Therefore, it’s easy to push them aside or get distracted. After all, we live in a time with an abundance of opportunity. Yet, we rarely learn how to distinguish what to say Yes to and what to say No to.
When we don’t hit our goals, we easily lose momentum. It sucks! All the excitement drops and we throw up our hands and say, it will never happen. We get down on ourselves. Instead of going down the dark rabbit hole of despair, here’s how to keep the momentum going:
(1) Set goals that excite you.
Can you wake up every morning and be excited about what you’re working on? Imagine what it will feel like to have accomplished that goal. Embody the energy of a completed goal every morning. There’s a difference between, I want to lose 10 pounds versus I want to have more energy to play with my kids. This is what also helps when obstacles, barriers, and problems are in the way.
(2) Schedule time in your day to work on your goals.
Do you have dedicated, uninterrupted time block (2 hours a day) to reach your goals? Two hours a day times 365 days a years is 730 hours. How much progress can you make in your career, life, or relationships when you dedicate 730 hours a year to it?
“Little steps create big gains over time.”
(3) Plan for setbacks.
When your goals hit an obstacle or life throws you a curveball, what strategies do you employ to get back on track? What resources do you need? Did you know that Olympic runners create a strategy for what they will do if they fall during a race? They even practice how they will get up.
Bring meaningful, impactful goals into your career, life, and relationships. If you truly want to make an impact on those around you and society at large, it’s up to you to show up every day dedicated to make this happen.
Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
