How To Slay Your Goals

Hey!

I don’t know about you, but I was having so much trouble trying to slay my goals a few months ago. I didn’t even know how to set myself a goal, and work towards it. But in the past few months, I’ve worked out a list of techniques to help me slay my goals. And I wanted to share them with you!


Use A Planner

I realised the importance of using a planner just recently, when I started bullet journalling. Writing your to-do list down helps you remember them better, and also helps you keep track of your work better. As you finish each task, you can simply tick it off, and I’ve found that when I do this, I feel so proud of myself because my goals are set out so clearly and neatly. A really good idea would be to use color to better organise your ideas, and let’s face it, everything looks a lot better when you add color!

Chunk It Up

I remember hearing this phrase during a career’s presentation I went to. To “chunk it up” literally just means to work towards what you want to achieve one step at a time. Usually what I do is right down my main goal/focus and a list of sub-goals I need to achieve in order to achieve my main goal. This takes so much stress off my mind, and it gives me more reasons to treat myself! Every time I accomplish a small goal, I treat myself to a delicious smoothie, or go get some hot chocolate from a nearby chocolate shop.

Don’t Procrastinate

I know, I know. This is easier said than done. But procrastination is like your enemy when it comes to achieving your goals. Luckily though, there are a lot of helpful apps out there that get rid of your procrastination. I use Forest, which is a really amazing app. What it basically does is, you set a time limit for a specific task, and Forest grows a digital tree for that amount of time. If you pick up your phone and try to visit another app, your tree immediately dies. If you haven’t gotten it already, I suggest you should, because it’s helped me out a lot!

Positive Affirmations

Whoever said positive affirmations and quotes didn’t help you out at all was wrong. Sure, the first day I started looking at them, I thought they were a total waste of time. But every morning, when I started my day of with a positive affirmation, I realised that my mood was improving and that I was more positive and motivated throughout the day. As a result, I got more work done, and I had more time to myself.

Self Reflection

Every night, I suggest taking some time just to reflect on what your day was like. Usually during this time, I fill out my mood evaluation and my gratitude log in my bullet journal, and write an entry in my normal journal. Sometimes what I find helpful is to do a brain dump, where you write down everything that’s been bothering you. After writing it down, you can take a look at them and figure out ways to solve those problems/issues.

In order to achieve your goals stress-free, another thing you also need to do is prioritize self care. Take a few minutes every day to have a skin care routine, take a hot shower and maybe do your nails. This is really important, because if you’re not feeling your best, it’s likely that it will show in your work.

I hope these tips helped you! If you ever need to talk, I’m always available through my Contact Me page:)
