KNOW WHAT KIND OF GOALS TO SET
A vacation is a great goal to add to a list of goals for a month. A degree is just impractical. Anything achievable in a day or week is a perfect goal to be included in your list. It is important to put everything into perspective when you set your goals and how they affect people around you.
BREAK YOUR GOALS INTO SECTIONS
Separate your goals into three sections: immediate, intermediate and regular. Move into action on your immediate goals. Spread your immediate and regular goals over the 30-day period. Sections help you to put things in order of importance. It makes you efficient.
OVERLAP YOUR GOALS
Some of your goals are integral to the success of the rest. Schedule your monthly goals in a way that allows you to tie the execution of an immediate goal to the part-completion of a regular goal. Help yourself to succeed. It doesn’t hurt your overall effort to make your goal-achieving strategies easier on yourself.
Alter goals that are rendered impossible, due to circumstance. You can partially achieve them or postpone them to the next month. Work the hand you are dealt with. Never make excuses to quit when things don’t go the way you want.
USE YOUR BREAKS
Weekends are good times to review your progress. Give yourself a pep talk or self-evaluation to finish all the goals you have set for the month. You need to pace yourself if you desire a great performance on your monthly goals.
