Your mind has 1500 thoughts per minute. Think about that for a moment? That’s a lot of thoughts and chances are one of them is not your goals. Below are tips on how to avoid losing sight of your goals that you can begin doing today.
- Be clear about your goals – Some people have a variety of goals related to career, marriage, children, lifestyle, vacations, business ventures, finances and more. How are you going to remember them all? Write them down! Write them down in a notebook, on a piece of paper or on your computer. Just write them down. Once you see them in print, it will give you a good idea on the direction you want your life to go towards.
- Make a vision board – Your mind observes thousands of images per day, make your goals one of those images. Create a vision board of all of your goals and what you want your life to look like in the future. Include pictures, drawing or items that remind you of your goals. For example, include a picture of your dream vacation, your future career, relationship, new car and more. Place all of the pictures on a board using tape or glue and hang it in your home or office. You can also create a vision board online too. Using it as a screensaver is suggested so you see it on a daily basis to encourage you to reach your dreams.
- Make a schedule – Some goals are easier and quicker to achieve than others. Figure out which ones are the easiest and take steps to achieve them quickly. For example, you might want a new job and a new car. In this case, you would want to update your resume, search for a new job, go on interviews and accept a new job. Once you have the new job you can focus on saving money for a down payment on a new car.
Remember keeping your goals in sight on a daily basis is essential avoiding losing sight of your goals. A vision board is an excellent way to allow your mind to dream of the day your goals are achieved and you are living your dream lifestyle. Stay focused, keep your goals in sight and continue setting new goals for your future.
