After we’ve found our motivation, how do we stay on top of it? Maybe you’re trying to get fit, lose weight, or start your own business. Maybe you’re trying to do several things at once.
Getting motivated and inspired is the first step of a goal. We start going to the gym for the first week, set a schedule, make plans and things go smoothly at first. Soon after the enthusiasm begins fading and it becomes easy to end up at abandoning your goal.
These are some ways I found useful to stay on top of your goals, whatever they might be:
# 1: Start on easy goals – all goals take time and effort, and trying to accomplish more than three or four at a time is more than most people can. Try and pick your most important goals, and remember everything takes time. A good strategy is choosing goals that can relate to another (eg. If you’re trying to get fit, it may be a good idea to have a secondary goal of trying to eat healthier, whereas if you’re number one goal is to write a book, it may not be a good idea to work on starting a business at the same time).
