As it is a new year, most people start making resolutions and focusing on things they want to change about themselves or their lives. I prefer to look at it differently, how can I enhance my life, what can I do to make it better? What are my 2008 goals? Have you thought about them?
Perhaps your goals might include making a salary of $200,000 per year, running your own successful business, having a family, or writing a novel, perhaps it's writing your blog every week or at least once a month, whatever your goal is here are some tips to get you started.
1. Think about your goals. Write them down.
a) Have a daily to do list that will support you reaching your goal. Example: If you want to write a novel, you should block out time for writing everyday.
2. Adjust your list as your goals broaden or change.
a) Sometimes while we are on the path to reaching our goals, we realize that there is more to it or that we have stumbled upon something else that we would like to explore. Allow yourself to be flexible. Be willing to adjust your goals.
3. Have or develop a support group of friends and family that will encourage you to stay motivated.
4. Attend events that people in the field you have chosen might attend.
and last but not least,
5. Research, research, research
a) When you talk to people about what you want to do, you should know all there is to know about your field.
Until next time, be breezy and God bless!!
