My preferred way of going about a new goal is doing it all at once. You know a little bit of everything each day. History shows that, that approach tends to lead to complete disaster. Most of the time when it is 9 P.M., I am only half done with my to-do goal list. To make matters worse I now also have a Word Web with everything I want to achieve. There is no better time to change my goal approach then now.
I know for certain that starting with everything at once won’t lead to success, but doing it goal per goal isn’t going to cut it either. Combining goals seems like the best option. Now I am only left with the dilemma of how to combine them.
I figured I’d start by figuring out how long I’ve been wanting to the things on my WordWeb. I mean I must really want to do them if they made it to this point in my life. I made myself a top three. As they say all good things come in three. Hopefully they, whoever they may be, are right.
Luckily the top three consisted of completely different things, making it easier to strategize. Well at least that’s what I thought. After making up the plan for each one of the three I concluded that doing all three at once wasn’t going to combine well with my unditchable obligations.
I decided to make one long-term goal and one short-term goal. Giving myself more time to do one of them will take the pressure of the fact that I too only have 24 hours in each day.
Hopefully all good things come in twos too!
