Learning to plan and achieve your goals is a complex and challenging process - one that we work on throughout our entire lives! Sharpening your planning and executing skills will help you achieve your goals. We are going to share the five best ways to achieve your goals (from Harvard Extension School):
Create Realistic Goals: Creating realistic goals will make you more likely to stay motivated and encourage you to continue to work towards them. A quality goal will be challenging and flexible - it is able to adapt if necessary.
Build a Schedule That’s Right for You: Having deadlines for when you would like to have a certain goal done will hold you accountable. It’s a natural human tendency to delay the due date. So, giving yourself due dates is important! We have a separate blog post on how to create a schedule that works for you.
Assess Your Priorities: Using strategies such as the Eisenhower Matrix will help you correctly analyze your priorities. Do this periodically to make sure your priorities are lining up with your goals.
Work Smarter, Not Harder: Before you commit to a certain action plan, make sure you critically evaluate the best way to accomplish your goal. Take some time to reflect and research how others have achieved a similar goal to yours. This will help you gain new insights that will be able to assist you in effectively completing your goals.
Reward Yourself: Making time to reward yourself is as important as scheduling work time. This will help you value the hard work you have put in so far. Rewarding yourself will also decrease the likelihood that you will burn out.
