When it comes to goals, it’s useful to start small achieve big
When you’re in a taxi, and the driver asks where you would like to go, have you ever replied: “I don’t really know!”? Knowing where you want to go on a journey is obviously important, and no less so, when it comes to our goals.
‘Goal-setting’ can often feel overwhelming, so instead of one big long term goal, break it down. Break your goal into a few short term targets that are realistic and easy to achieve. Examples of simple short-term targets could be drinking one more glass of water a day, clearing your desk apart from the one thing you are working on, going for a five minute walk. By creating these smaller short-term targets and making them relatively easy to achieve you are more likely to achieve your ultimate goal.
Set a simple target with easy steps that will get on the path towards where you’d like to be.
Start Small Achieve Big Tip
Reward yourself when you complete each short-term target. You could reward yourself by going on a weekend break, treating yourself to a new piece of clothing, spending time with friends or buying a new magazine. It could be anything!
