It is tempting to focus only on outcomes as opposed to the day to day activities necessary to achieve a goal. Instead, if you spend time evaluating what you’ve done that has worked in the past and developing the strategies and activities to replicate those things daily, you will achieve your goal.
Here are a few tips to help you change your focus:
Start with the end in mind-what do you want to achieve
Develop a plan of the necessary steps and a timeline
Focus on the steps daily and find a way to reward yourself for achieving the steps
Achieving your goals become significantly easier, and less stressful, because you are actively working your plan.
