For a lot of people, 2021 is that year they had a lot of goals on their list. Most of these goals were carried over from 2020 and the cycle has been one since God knows when.
Maybe you set a lot of goals for yourself in 2021 that you couldn’t achieve either because you did not commit well to it or some circumstances you could not control came up during the cause of the year.
I am sure you do not want this year to be ‘business-as-usual’. You want to crush your biggest goals and achieve more than you have done in previous years.
Here are 5 ways easy ways to do it:
1. Plan Ahead
A lot of people consider planning a rigorous and time-wasting task but planning your day, weeks and even year meticulously would save you the cluelessness that comes with being stuck in between, you can agree that planning is worth the time.
Asides from that, planning helps you to be specific about the things you would invest more time on than others, that way you can increase your productivity thus increasing your result.
2. Emphasize Actions Over Result
One of the easiest things in life is identifying the things we want to change in our lives. It is the beginning of the year and you must have a list of things you want to change about yourself, your finance, your body shape, and every other area.
As opposed to this, one of the hardest things to do in life is to identify how that change will happen.
In the past, you focused on what you wanted to change and not how you wanted to change it. This year, focus on the how and your results would be exceptional.
3. Be Consistent
There is an effect consistency has on results that can’t be mistaken for luck. John Maxwell once said that small disciplines repeated with consistency every day lead to great achievements gained slowly over time.
Commit yourself to stay consistent at doing little actions that matter and you will see how much more difference that would make.
4. Avoid Repeating Past Mistakes
Learn from your past mistakes and the mistakes of those around you. Making costly mistakes repeatedly would affect your results.
5. Be Your own Greatest Motivation.
There will be moments when you will get tired of everything, be ready to motivate yourself not to stop at any point.
