It’s finally February. It seemed like we would never get out of January, but we are here and it’s time to make the most of your time over these next 28 days. Get out of the hamster on a wheel mentality, where you’re constantly moving but going no where. It’s time to start crushing your goals. It’s time to start getting things you want out of life and here are five ways to help you maximize your time and achieve your goals this month.
Set your Goals for the Month
What do you want to accomplish this month? Whether it’s something huge like writing a grant proposal or as simple as organizing your closet, set your goals. It’s easier to accomplish your task when you have a clear concise goal in mind.
If you have a lot you want to tackle this month. Start with the most important first and begin checking the others off your list. Make a list of things you want to accomplish week by week.
Write It Down
Speaking of a list, write your goals down. I like to take it a step further and write a list for your goals week by week. What are you planning to get you closer to your end of the month goal. Breaking it down week by week makes the takes seem less daunting.
Commit to the Plan
Here’s one I truly have trouble with. I have all these bright ideas. I have this fancy to-do- list and I fail to commit half of the things on the list.
Follow through. Don’t flake on yourself. Remember why you’re doing it and think of the end results.
It’s hard. I know ,but it’s worth it.
Learn to Say No
In the midst of becoming a super fantastic, I’m on my grind to conquer the world woman, make sure you take some time for yourself. And this means saying no to certain things. It’s understanding that your plate is already full this month so I’ll need to take care of that at another time. Take on opportunities that you’re truly passionate about.
Don’t forget to have fun, even if you have to plan it into your weekly goals. This is something I have to remind myself all the time. Jamiese, have fun, live a little. Honestly, we only get one life to live so make sure you’re enjoying it.
