Raise your hand if you have really BIG, out of this world, freaking crazy goals you want to reach!
We ALL have hopes and dreams like that, even if we don’t want to admit it.
You know, the kind of ideas and goals that keep you up at night because you’re just so excited at even the thought of it actually happening? It’s such an amazing feeling! The energy behind something like that is invigorating.
So with that being said, we need to talk SETTING REALISTIC GOALS.
DON’T TAKE EVERYTHING ON AT ONCE
Being overwhelmed in any situation is uncomfortable. If a person’s brain is going in a bunch of different directions, one can tend to shut down. Don’t over-clutter your brain/life otherwise…NOTHING GETS DONE.
To prevent such instances of overwhelm from happening to YOU, make sure you never have too much on your plate at once. Compartmentalize and organize, basically. The way things get done is based on priority. The more important stuff is on the top of the list and complete tasks by order of significance.
The key is to focus all your energy on ONE task at a time. Don’t try to juggle multiple responsibilities at once.
BE REALISTIC ABOUT YOUR GOALS
Remember when we said setting REALISTIC goals? It’s kind of the whole point. By all means, GO AFTER YOUR DREAM. Go after it aggressively. But make sure you can actually make it happen first.
Make sure you have the resources, the time, and the actual ability to achieve your goal so you don’t set yourself up for failure. Failure SUCKS, no?
You can’t decide to run a marathon next week when you can’t remember the last time you actually ran.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT IT
If it lights a fire in you and makes you excited for the future, don’t let anything get in your way. MAKE IT HAPPEN. Isn’t that what life is all about, anyway? Too many people go to work everyday doing something they hate and aren’t excited about. You don’t need to be one of them.
Pursuing your dreams and passions makes you so much more productive, too. Because when you’re passionate about something, it doesn’t feel like work.
At one point, All Fenix was just a dream. And through following methods like the ones above, our dream became a reality (and our full time job!) one step at a time. All Fenix is living proof that when you set goals, create realistic timelines, and spend every day on something that you’re passionate about, YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN.
What goals are you setting for yourself?! How are you planning on achieving them?
