SMART stands for Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic and Time. When setting a goal (long-term or short-term) it needs to be specific, the more specific the better. For example one of my goals this year is to get down to a BMI of 20%. Measurable for my goal means to be able to check in weekly (weekly weigh ins) and see if I am coming any closer to my BMI goal. If your goals are more mental try keeping a journal to track yourself. Is your goal achievable? It is great to set high goals but…you want to be able to check it off. Something that would be a good example of this is if my goal was to get a BMI of 20% by tomorrow…probably not going to happen. Which brings us to being realistic. Continue reading S.M.A.R.T.

Turn Your Goals Into Reality | Quick Tips (2 min read)

Goal setting is something that everyone needs to perfect. Turning your goals into reality is the hard part. These 3 Things can help you get a head start on your goal setting today:

1. Keep them Attainable

When you are setting goals, it is very crucial to keep them within reach. You can always have a long term vision or dream, but for the present you have to make sure the goal is realistic. This way you will find that they will be much easier to hit. If you are setting them high and far, you will find yourself often disappointed, and discouraged. Taking a step back and ensuring that you have a goal within reach will give you that little extra to make sure you won’t be disappointed.

2. Maintain Your Vision

Life comes at you hard at times, and it is crucial in the goal setting process that you don’t let anything hold you back from your goals. Keep your vision alive and strong, and the rest will come naturally. If you already can see yourself somewhere, doing something or being someone specific, you are halfway there. You just have to ensure that nothing gets in your way of accomplishing your goals, and achieving your dreams in which you set for yourself.

3. Never Give Up

Like I said, life gets very tough at times, but no matter how hard things get you cannot give up. Half of the battle is won before it even started. You set yourself up for success, and not giving up will be the easiest yet the most important thing you do. It does not matter what the goal is, what stage of life you are in, or anything, you have a vision and a goal so go get it. Nothing is stopping you but yourself, and the majority of the time, you will be the reason you don’t achieve your goals. Sit down and simply say, “I Got This.”

With those, you will find that the goal setting process is much simpler than you would have originally thought. Just make sure, when you are trying to turn your goals into reality, you have to keep them attainable, maintain your vision, and never give up!

One Place at a Time, One at a Time

Life is not a destination, it is a journey, and with that, you come across times where you have to make important choices. Many things get thrown at you forcing you to multi-task. In fact, you are praised for doing so. You brag about it, and the people around you nod agreeing with how super powerful you are. What you are completely oblivious about though is that you are damaging your inner soul. You are hurting yourself by pushing, forcing and insisting on finishing multiple jobs at the same time.

Shut Up and Drive (3 min read)

If a close ‘friend’ told you that you were never going to make it in your profession, be great at your hobby or do well in life would you actually believe them?

I guess the obvious answer to all of the above is, well maybe. But when this number starts to grow and things look tough it can be hard to be positive, go against the grain and take on your own personal challenges. That’s why remaining positive, determined and having that drive are sometimes harder to find, I’ll admit personally the whole idea of this gives me anxiety but for some miraculous reason I just have this driving force to keep me moving forward.

Firstly when tasked with attempting to take on this blue, unmotivated feeling you’re likely to get comments such as ‘just smile’ or ‘you shouldn’t think like that’, feeling motivated yet? Probably not. But if you begin to picture the end goal and the feeling of this moment then things start to feel a tad more achievable, so say I wanted to get an A in my next test the initial thought of this may be quite daunting and demotivating in itself. However look at it this way, first of all, ask yourself ‘is this goal remotely achievable?’ No? OK so I aim for B this is definitely more within my reach and I’m only averaging a C.

Next, once you have created this realistic personal goal you may want to assess the time frame, in this example, it would be the test date. So from this, I can take the time to mentally or physically plan ahead and meet the self-created or set deadline. Not pushing on yourself, but then not completely ignoring the fact that THERE IS A DEADLINE! To put it simply put say a few hours aside each weekend before the exam to properly study and remove social media, your phone and any other distractions from the scenario. It may be helpful to beforehand plan how you may use the time you have so say this week I’m going to focus on topic A because this is the one that I most struggle with.

Finally the last thing to do would be refresh and remind yourself during the week for example if you picked up the studying you had done or the work you had completed and just went over it for say ten minutes just to ensure that it was stuck right there in your mind and that your brain hadn’t forgotten about all the ‘supposed’ hard work you had done. Allowing for that thought to be mentally instilled in your mind, almost forcing your brain to store the idea, plan or studying at the forefront of your mind.

In summary, the situation and positivity you feel are relative to how much time, and overall effort you want to possess to be at the desired end point.

Key points (if you don’t have the time to read!)

  • Positivity = the key
  • Picture and feel the end goal
  • THERE IS A DEADLINE!
  • Refresh and remind
  • Have fun whilst doing it 🙂

Finish What You Have Started

“Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started.” David Allen

There are many things in our lives that we wish to change. That may be getting rid of bad habits or implementing new good ones. We set goals, promise ourselves, get a planner, get a coach, set reminders but still after a few days or maybe weeks, we give up. We get distracted or do not succeed in seeing any results, and so we do not finish it. Continue reading Finish What You Have Started
