If you are anything like me, the end of the year might just leave you a little disappointed that you could have achieved more but didn''t.
With 2008 already on us when we look forward with great hope and enthusiasm, we must also prepare for the end of the year when we can look back with lot of satisfaction. A year has begun with many new plans, resolutions and goals. All these resolutions are made and implemented with a tremendous resolve. But these resolutions slowly vanish in the rush of the daily routines and pressures.
Here is a three step formula I have devised to achieve all that I set out to do.
As they say, if we don''t know where we are going how would we get there. We have many intentions but no specific goals. The best way to convert all the good intentions to goals is to put them in writing. I know it is easier said than done. Where to start? How to write them out? What to add and what to leave out? It is always a lot of work to create all those pages of goals.
Action is the second key. Don''t worry if you are not getting results. Every day action builds up into definite results though they may take some time to show visible results. There is also a lot of talk going on about taking massive action if you want to succeed. It is not the absolute truth. You can succeed with whatever action you can take.
Only be consistent about taking action. Small steps taken one after the other may yet take you to the Himalayas if only you keep walking albeit a bit slower..
Just spend 10 minutes in the evening to review results. The habit of reviewing results achieved on a daily basis would help to initiate correctives where ever and whenever you go wrong or proportionate results are not achieved. The review also helps to take pride and pleasure in the progress made which would motivate you further towards your goals.
I Wish you a great and the most fruitful year of your life.
