All of us have our own set of goals. But chasing goals effectively requires a lot of effort. In this hustling life we often forget what our goals are and start chasing material well being. It goes without saying that material wellbeing is important for a better life but when you are chasing your goals, it creates a new level of happiness and makes your life better. Below are some ideas for prioritizing your goals effectively:
1) Avoid Distractions
When you are working towards your goal, there tends to be a lot of distractions that you can’t control. From friends to family everyone will want to give their opinions on why your goal isn’t worth chasing. Sometimes you will be confused about whether you are going in the right direction or not. But when you are working towards your goals you should first focus on avoiding distractions. When you are able to avoid distractions you are already halfway through your goal chasing.
2) Take A Break Once In A While
It’s important to chase your goals but enjoying life and relaxing once in a while is an important part of life. While chasing your goal make sure to take a break to freshen up your energy and comeback with great motivation. Bit of break will help you in chasing your goal in an effective and fast way.
3) Don’t Be Afraid Of Slow Progress
We all have different ways of learning and progressing. But slow progress in chasing your goals is the most effective type of progress. From learning, falling to getting up again with new energy to chase your goals is called progress. Even if your progress is slow it is still progress, right?
4) Measure Your Progress
Every goal you set should/must be measurable. Even when you set small goals like reading a few pages of a novel everyday or learning to cook at least one new dish every week, you need to measure your progress. Every goal is supposed to be measured by counting on its progress. Think about how far you have come from the time you started out to chase your goal. If you think you are still in the same place then take some steps to improve your goal chasing.
5) Learn Something New Everyday Although your goal requires skills and talent in one particular field, learning something new outside the goal can also help you in prioritizing your goals. When you learn something new everyday you get closer to your dreams and goals directly or indirectly because everything we learn will help us in life at some point
