Motivational March - Day 5

Friday, March 05, 2021

Write down one goal, no matter how small, that will be your focus to meet tomorrow.
Place it on your nitestand and read it before you start your day tomorrow. Focus on that ONE goal so that you meet it by the end of the day. If your goal is so large it can't be completed in one day, break it down into managable steps and use one or more steps as your goal for the day. Whatever you have written the night before must be completed by the end of the next day. Then before bed, write down your NEW goal for the next day, and so on.

You should be able to say that you MET your daily goal every night. Repeat every night for the rest of the month. BOOM! Next step - next goal! These victories each day should give you the motivation for the following day, and help you see that you are making concrete, measurable progress toward your goal.

Here are some suggestions to help you write your goal for the next day:

Use present tense when writing your goal, and using positive words.
Be specific.

If you don't know what your goals are, most likely you won't be able to identify and prioritize the specific tasks you need to work on to achieve those goals.

Write your major goals down. If they are too big to complete in ONE day, break them into smaller tasks.

List everything you need to do to meet that goal. Organize with hardest or most important step at #1 and then follow with steps in decreasing order from hardest to easiest.

Your hardest task is your biggest, most important task, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on if you don't do something about it. So it goes in the #1 spot.

It is also the one task that can have the greatest positive impact on your life and results at the moment.
