When you want to get big projects done, it is important to be consistent and stay on track. It can be easy to derail or give up, but there are ways to prevent that from happening. We have to learn to build up great habits to do great things.
So how can we stay on track and achieve greatness?
One habit I suggest doing is giving yourself short term goals rather than only long term goals. Smaller and easier goals do a lot for us; more than you may think. Here is what they do.
- Short term goals allow us to win a lot more. Doesn’t that sound awesome!?
- When we win more, we feel better about ourselves more. The more content we are with ourselves, the more likely we are to succeed.
- Smaller goals combined create larger goals. It’s nice to think about the forest we are growing, but we cannot forget about every tree that we plant along the way.
- It’s good to see progress. If we only mark down the big goals we have reached, we can feel down and out. We need to celebrate each step and little progress is still progress!
So take some time and think about how your long term goals can be broken down a bit. Maybe there are parts that you didn’t really take to heart. Sometimes the smallest goals create the most progress for us and that is something to be excited about.
