Long term goals can seem overwhelming when you only focus on the big picture and the potential outcome. I have found myself battling with the grandiose plans that I have for Manuka Sunday, often doubting if I will be able to achieve my vision to the fullest. Thankfully, I have come across valuable tactics to work my way to obtaining my vision, one step at a time.
Here are 4 tactics that I have used, and am using, to help stay on track:
1. Make your tasks achievable - Small measures of progress help to maintain momentum - for me, this is the MOST important action I can take to stay productive. Break the large goal down, complete small tasks, and stay confident.
2. Design your future actions - Write it alllll out! Know when your most productive hours are and fill that time with the most important actions you should be undertaking that day.
3. Take time to smell the roses - give yourself a satisfying (smaller) weekly or daily reward when accomplishing your tasks. Don't wait until the end goal is achieved, because your work will never really be done.
4. Keep yourself accountable - make sure there are consequences for missing the mark. If you cannot keep yourself accountable how will you ever be able to lead others?
Take some time to think these tactics and strategies over. Know that you have all the power within yourself to achieve your vision, just take it one step at a time!
