Do you want to quickly accomplish your goals? While life requires you to attain success to enjoy its peak, it’s inevitable for you to accomplish certain goals.
Goals are important elements of everyman’s life. They are those things that give our life a direction. Most successful entrepreneurs or career persons have been said to be intensely driven goal-oriented people.
People without goals just go where their life takes them without any direction. We have to set goals to be successful in life. However, goal setting is not enough, we have to know how best to set and accomplish our goals.
The overarching aim of this article is to present you with valuable advice on how to accomplish your goals.
Should You Set Any Goal?
One of the major reasons why most people do not set goals is because they really do not know how to set them. It is necessary to say that a goal setter should set his or hers wisely. They should be able to know which goal to set and not to set.
The kinds of goals you should and should not set are graphically depicted below.
The 5 Hidden Secrets To Quickly Accomplish Your Goals
Setting of goals is not as important as achieving them. Below are some certain things we should avoid doing while vying to accomplish our set goals.
1. Do Not Set Too Many Goals
When you set too many goals, you may likely find it difficult to give each of your goals utmost attention, time, energy and capital available to you.
We do not say that it is not good to have a lot of aspirations but what we are trying to elaborate on is that most of them should go on a wish list. Your high-priority goals, especially the ones that are relevant to you, should receive more visibility and attention.
According to Richard Carswell, “the fewer your goals are, the more focused you will be on accomplishing them.” Carswell seems to be right because too many goals could make one be too distracted, overtaxed, overwhelmed and frustrated. What you should realize while setting too many goals is that you have limited time and resources to accomplish the things you want to do.
2. There Is No Need To Fear
Henry Ford, as reported by Dale Carnegie, advised that “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
I do not see you accomplishing your goals when you are scared to do the right things, especially at the right times.
Fear erodes your self-confidence and if you give it an audience will eventually convince you to give up. You need to be confident and strong to accomplish your goals. Joe Paterno once opined that “besides prides, loyalty, discipline, heart and mind, confidence is the key to all the locks”. Confidence kills fear, be confident and do not be frightened. Fear cause inaction, which leads to failure. This is why you need not fear.
3. Do Away With Negativity
Negativities are meant to discourage you with defeatist thoughts.
Negativities may come from you or from your friends, coworkers, neighbours and acquaintances. If you are willing to accomplish your goals, you are advised to do away with negativity. Believing in negative thoughts is the single greatest obstruction to success as Charles. F. Glassman believed. Do not allow negative thoughts to preoccupy your mind because once they do, the odds that you will successfully accomplish what you set out to do plummet.
4. Do Not Be Dormant
Goals are mere wishes when actions are not taken. Do you wish to accomplish your set goals? If yes! Then do not be dormant. The execution of one’s plan is imperative to goal accomplishment.
Goals can be accomplished only through planning and execution. Therefore, always come up with an action plan. Let your action plan details everything you need to do, when and how often you should do it. Once you have created your action plan, all you need to do is to focus on the actions you will need to take each day.
5. Time Your Actions
While it’s important to take actions when striving to achieve your goals, it’s imperative to time your way towards accomplishing them.
Projecting the accomplishing duration of your goals will help you to effectively channel your efforts on your chasing goals than other (daily) time-consuming activities.
Final Words On How To Quickly Accomplish Your Goals
Quoting the Spanish poet and playwright, Pablo Picasso, “Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success,” you will agree with me that your goals will be achieved only when your actions are not contradicting your brilliant plans.
