2019 goals challenge – day 6 Research

Allow yourself some time today to indulge in some research around your goal. 

Research is what inspires us, feeds our motivation and can lead to connections when you find others with similar interests.

You can research through books, magazines, online, or by connecting with other people.

Remember to update your goals plan with any new knowledge that you want to incorporate.  Check out the GoalGetting workbook for a template for your goals plan.

2019 goals challenge – day 2: Break it down and Make it Happen

Does your goal seem so big and overwhelming that you don’t know where to start?  Take some time today to break it down into small steps.  Think about the challenges you might face, and how to overcome them.  Then, if the worst happens, you already have an action plan on hand.

Once you’ve broken your goal down into a manageable plan, schedule it into your calendar and treat it as an appointment that you need to show up for.

Breaking your goals down helps you to see how they are achievable and increases your motivation.  Scheduling them into your calendar gives them importance and helps to ensure they don’t get forgotten – and it can also highlight if your expectations are unrealistic!  (It’s easy to get carried away when you’re passionate about your goals).
