I am one to say that I believe in writing things down assist in actually getting things done. First it started off as a way to remember and then it became an accountability thing. As time goes on, I learn that writing down my goals and plans increases my odds for achieving them.
Now don't get me wrong, just because you write a plan in your planner doesn't mean it's just going to happen.. Trust me, I tried it! lol All you end up doing is crossing it out at a later time. To avoid all that, utilize the steps in this process to assist the process.
1. Figure out your goals.
2. Write these goals down.
3. Make sure you write specific goals.
4. Always put deadlines in your written goals.
5. Under each written goal, write a specific three-step plan on how you will achieve this goals
If you're looking at step 1 side eyed trying to think about what goal to set, think about the things in your life that you want to change. Whether it's your body, your finances, your location, or even your career path. Find what you're passionate about and use that as a topic to create your goals around.
