“Timed Productivity” ~ Pesky Resolutions (17 January 2019/Thursday BLOG) 3/52

How are you and more importantly – YOUR 2019 Resolutions?

Willpower thwarted by life … yet, again.

Change your mindset. 1 January is not a magic starting point — re-set is always your option; whenever you feel it is necessary. Strengthen your resolutions so they can withstand turbulence.

Some goals are complex – do you know all the phases of what you want to accomplish? Do your research. Readjust your goals and get started and don’t stop.

Don’t be hard on yourself. You have plenty of time to reach your goals.

  1. Re-prioritize your goals.
  2. Build a support system.
  3. Develop a tracking system and review monthly your up and downs.

Set YOURSELF To Succeed (Goals Blog 2)

Set YOURSELF To Succeed

Welcome back!!  This is Gloria-Jean Brown, your guide to time management efficiency – on YOUR terms.

To succeed you need a plan for what you want to accomplish.  Then, you break those plans into workable goals that you can accomplish – your way.  We all have different exterior concerns that vie for our time.  Some of us are entrepreneurs; some are students; some are Moms with 2 or more children; some are retired  — point is, we all have other interest and concerns. Where do you find time for you to do you?  You have to create the time – in steps.  You may even have to give up some things, temporarily to accomplish your goals.  You may need to partner with someone to accomplish your goals.

Until you determine what you want; and how you intend to accomplish this journey – you are not going anywhere.  Start with your pen.  Writing is powerful.  You may not achieve your goals as you initially intended; but, they will be attained. You will just have to adjust your steps based on life events.  Step by step … then, AND SUDDENLY – you have arrived.

You need to make S.M.A.R.T work for you. (especially “R“):

  1. Specific
  2. Measurable
  3. Achievable
  4. Realistic
  5. Timed

Your goal is something that you want, that you can control.  You are totally responsible for the accomplishing.  Click for your Goal Setting Sheet.

 

Be specific in what you want to attain:  take a course; paint a picture; write a book; seek a promotion at work; save for retirement.

What measurable time do you have to devote to your goal?  An hour a day; Saturdays; 2 evenings a week, if you don’t play softball. Pay off some bills, so you can start to save that money.

Is it achievable? It is 1 November and you want to lose 30 pounds by Thanksgiving (coming in 24+ days) – this is probably not achievable in this time frame! Perhaps you need to start a weight-loss program in September?  You need 3-5 more courses for your degree to be eligible for promotion consideration – you probably can’t achieve this in 2-3 months. You can sign up for courses mow and be ready for next year’s promotion cycle.

Realistic – you must always build in extra time for the unexpected.  Have you had a full day of activities planned; going here – going there; stop here; run in there – what will a flat tire do to your plans?  Can you change the tire?  Will you get dirty?   Will you have to wait for assistance to arrive?  You are on the train or a plane – someone sneezes – few days later you have the flu!!  What of your plan(s) when you have fever and all your muscles ache.  Know where you are going; but, leave extra time to get there.  Don’t be so worn out that you can not enjoy the journey.

Timed – simply; put a date on it!!  An achievable, realistic date.  You can always adjust it if necessary.  You may finish your steps early.  You may need to add a task or two to your plans – it is OKAY!

There are any number of technological applications to assist you in accomplishing everything from stop smoking, to project management, to organizing your office or home, to running for office. Make use of what works for you and most importantly – what you will use!!
