Set goals and achieve them!

Write down your goals.

This is the first step to achieving. And I mean “write down”, get a piece of paper and a pen and make a list of all those things you wanna change, what you want to learn, etc. Then put that paper (after curating your list with the following steps) on a place you will see everyday, some recommend the wallet, but for me its too intrusive plus I’d had to unfold it every time, I would end up getting rid of it. Instead I like to have it in my desk, that way I can read them every day and every time I sit on my computer.

Put thinking into your goals.

A good practice is to take your goals and make it smaller. By this I mean if you want to lose weight, don’t just put that, think on how you are gonna do it, when is gonna happen and why. When our whys are big, the outcome is more satisfactory.

Create S.M.A.R.T. goals.

This one I learned while working at a consultancy company. While the methodology is business related, it is extremely beneficial for personal goals. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Results-focused and Time-bound.
