We all want to achieve our goals – but we often focus on the end result, rather than how we’re going to get there.
Defining the actions we will take helps us feel a greater sense of control, lets us track our progress, and makes our goals seem more achievable.
Once you know how to set a goal, working towards it is still tough. That’s why not all of us are able to reach our goals.
The secret is to remind yourself how achieving this goal will help you live your best life.
When you’re working towards a goal you may get side-tracked by distractions and temptations. But what if there was a way to stick to your goals?
Just like your phone, the internet, even the site you’re reading this on run on algorithms, you can make your own algorithm to specify what you will do when faced with a distraction or temptation. These are called Implementation and Intentions.
Use implementation intentions to stay on track and keep temptations at bay. With hard work, dedication and consistency, you can achieve your goals.
