“The real voyage of discovery doesn’t consist of seeking a new landscape but in having new eyes”_Marcel Proust
It’s not uncommon to find people blame their failures to achieve stated goals on limitations of time and resources. Indeed this has become an everyday excuse that without these two obstacles, all humans would have become. As great as all the famous achievers known in history; ancient and contemporary time.
However, the truth of the matter is that continuous blaming of time and resources for failures would achieve nothing but to confine us to where we are. A radical approach which retails seeing beyond the apparent environmental obstacles to face our tasks squarely and with all vigour will scheme wonders in leading us to even the remotest, the most ambitious of our aspirations. This calls for sight, vision, right planning and right discipline. Key tips to rising above the ever present pressure of time and resources and get directly connected to our goals are listed below.
1. Articulate your goals.
2. Define your strategies and constantly review them.
3. Define your daily tasks.
4. Review your performance daily.
5. Compete with yourself and not others.
6. Above all, be disciplined.
Articulate your goals.
According to Soren Kierkegaard, The greatest mistake a traveller could make is to start without being sure of his or her destination. Therefore, the first step to pursuing life’s goals is to identify what those goals are and describe them in relevant details. Former US president, Bill Jefferson Clinton noted that early enough in his life,he had defined a set of clear cut life ambitions for himself which includes ‘having a successful legal practice and becoming a successful politician’. Such goals definition makes us resolute, keeps us focused against all odds and distractions. Sit back get a pen and paper and identify those goals see to it that you work to achieve them.
