Maybe you have some personal goals that you know you can obtain (Run a half marathon, learn the piano, etc) but for some reason, you are not reaching those goals. There are a few things that you might be doing (without realizing) it that is keeping you from reaching those goals.
Make a few easy changes in your life, to finally reach those heights you’ve set for yourself!
Be More Successful: by Remove the Distractions!
Stop multitasking! Science has proven that doing so just means that you are giving less than your full potential to each task. Stop watching Netflix while you are working! Not only does doing so draw your focus away from what really matters, but it will also take you much longer to complete your tasks!
When you get on the computer to work, only open the tabs that are necessary to help you complete your task at hand.
Silence your phone, and even flip it over. Don’t have your email open, because as you are waiting for a webpage to load, or a file to be exported you are too tempted to just “Check real quick” – This will cause you to go down the rabbit hole, and lose your focus, and waste your time! Oh! and for goodness sakes don’t open your social media!
Be More Successful: by Defining Your Goals
If you don’t really know where you want to end up, how will you know what to be working on? What is your end game? Do you want to be debt free? Be able to quit your job and stay at home with your kids? Run a full marathon? What is it? Now that you know what it is, WHY do you want it? What is your motivation? Find your why and cling to it!
By More Successful: by Decluttering your Workzone
No matter what goals you are trying to reach, if you do not have a clear – organized – space to do it, you likely won’t!
If your goals are work-related, make sure your office appeals to you. Even if all you have is a corner in your dining room. Spend a little time making it your own. Organize your supplies, so you don’t waste time searching.
Step back and evaluate the space. Is it meeting your needs the best that it can?
Let’s say your goal is to run a half marathon. Do you have a safe place to practice? Do you know where your running gear is, so you can get ready when you need to? Or are they always in the dirty clothes pile?
Figure out your pain points and come up with a solution. Then implement it!

Be More Successful: By Eliminating your To-Do List
Are you running ragged? I am not about to tell you to get away and take a breath, instead, I am going to tell you to get rid of some of the mess that is filling up your plate! If you don’t you’ll just return from a weekend away and be tossed right back into the mess!
Instead, what can you remove from your to-do list right now? What is not of enough importance and you can let go of? What can you pass on to someone else? Is there another mom in your sons class that can run the spring party?
Be More Successful: By Working on What Really Matters
This is a big one! What are you doing that you think will help you reach your goals, but its really just busy work?
Be More Successful: By Taking That Risk!
Are you afraid of something – that is really holding you back? I am. Creating and being in videos terrifies me. I am not sure why, but I know that if I want to take my blog to the next level – in 2018 I will have to set that fear aside and just “do it scared”. I am willing to take the risk of being embarassed, if that means I can help our family reach our goals!
What scares you – that is keeping you from being more sucessful?
