Do You Want Success? Part 7
01 Jun 2015
Hopefully by now you’ve read the first 6 entries of this series, and have begun to culminate your own thought and gotten a clear picture of what it takes to be successful in any avenue of your life.
Rule #7…Set A Timeline
Take a look at your “roadmap” from earlier, let that be your guide. You know where you’re at and where you want to be. Now it’s time to set up a realistic timeline. It is important to give yourself deadlines and goals.
Don’t look at the big picture only on this.It is important to set up mini-goals or milestones for your journey! For example, if you want to lose 20lbs in the next 8 weeks…then you should notate smaller goals such losing 5lbs, 10lbs, 15lbs, as well. Nothing will take you off your path, or keep you on your path like mini-goals!
Small successes are critical for a larger picture. They can be very motivating, but also confirm that you are on the right path. And if you struggle to hit a mini goal, then you know something needs to change.
Be prudent about your goals, don’t short change yourself and definitely don’t be over generous.
