Set Goal: Travel

To travel the world is probably the most common dream of most people. Despite that, not all people know how to efficiently use the goal setting process in this aspiration. Here’s a quick guide on what to do and what not to do.

Set Goal: Travel

First, in achieving goals such as this, employ the goal setting process when you are considering on traveling somewhere. Make use of planning and scheduling for the major parts. That is, plan out when you’re going to do this, where, and how you’re going to get to that certain place. As for scheduling, decide the things you’re going to do in your travel and note specific time spans for each activity. Make sure though, to allot a lot of time for each major activity such as site seeing as it would spoil the fun if you’ll only schedule a really short time for it such as 10 minutes.

For the planning phase of setting goals, make sure to just make rough notes of the things that you can do in your chosen travel spot. You don’t need to be specific about what things you’ll accomplish since it is travel and it needs to be enjoyed by being in the moment rather than having many sites seen.

Goal Setting is Basic

Goal setting is a basic thing that you should know and should have as a weapon against reality. This would be an ideal setting so that you, the person who is going to live the life you’ve been given, can pursue life and career goals. You should do them more actively so that more will be accomplished.

But it’s entirely up to you if you prefer to do them slowly wherein you take long breaks in between achieving goals. This is good too so that you can take as much needed rest and regain all that lost energy. Then you’d have lots of energy to spend for your next set goals.

Goal: Saving

If you’ve decided on a goal and it’s related to saving money because you want to buy something or you need it to pay for something, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s an easy to do process that you can employ in your saving goal.

Goal: Saving

First of all, write down how much amount you need to save up for. Then, designate a place where you’ll put your savings. It can be in an envelope, a coin bank, or in a bottle. Also, on the paper where you wrote the amount to save up for, write down the deadline or when you want to have saved up all the money you need. Next, on your money container, paste a picture of where you’re going to use the money. If it’s a thing you want to buy, take a picture of yourself with that item. If it’s for something that you need to pay for like tuition, your picture could be you in school or in front of the school cashier with a big thumbs up.

Now that the destination of your amount is all set, it’s now time to decide how much you’ll save per day, per week, or per month. This means that you also need to decide if you’ll make it a daily savings or a monthly one. If it’s for an item, daily savings could be fit for it. If it’s for tuition and similar expenses, a monthly or weekly savings would be nice. Once you’ve decided, make a schedule of when you’re going to put your savings. Also, make an account of every amount that you put in your savings. You can place it on a small notebook and put it in a table. The table should contain the amount, the date, and your signature to make it valid and to certify that you really placed money on that particular day.

There you go. Now all that’s left to do is start saving. Good luck and happy saving! 😀

Get Cheerleaders

In order to be able to actually complete goal setting, one needs to have motivation. There are lots of sources for this. There’s your main reason for setting a goal, your goal itself, your inspiration, and encouragement from people. This article will focus on the encouragement you get from other people.

Get Cheerleaders

We will call them cheerleaders. If you don’t have one yet, get one, and lots of them if you can help it. The reason why you need them is because their words of encouragement are very helpful in giving you the energy to keep going at your goal. This is especially true when you’ve just encountered a problem. They can be your friends, your family, your special someone, and your mentor.

To get cheerleaders, you simply have to inform them about what you are doing. Tell them that this is a big step in your life. That in itself is a signal for these people to encourage you and give you support. They might even give you some tips and help you if they can.

The Victims of Procrastination

In goal setting, procrastination was mentioned and it was suggested to use it for the unimportant tasks. In a regular day, where does procrastination usually come in? Most of the time, when we procrastinate, the tasks that lay victim to our act are the important ones. Specifically, what are these tasks?

The Victims of Procrastination

Usually, these are not just important but are also tasks that need to be accomplished right away. For example, if you are in school, the tasks that you are most likely to procrastinate on are your homework, take home exams, and projects. Commonly, the usual scenario is you put off doing it until the last minute and then you end up cramming to accomplish them. You then deliver a hurriedly finished paper that could have been better if only it were given more time. Thus, you only get a so-so grade instead of a supposedly high mark.

Important Things you should write in your Journal

Important Things that you should write in your Journal

There are numerous things that you can write in your journal. These can be personal thoughts, events that happened during the day, things that made you happy, things that made you sad, and many more. But with regards keeping a journal for the sake of goal setting, there are essential events that should be written down. I’m not saying you shouldn’t write the things that are not considered “essential” in your journal. You can, and I encourage you to. But take note to always input something in your diary that relates to your goal setting project.

What are these “essential” items? They can be your successes such as being able to procrastinate on the unimportant tasks, what you did for your goal, your failures, your feelings about these successes and failures, and your overall take on how you’re doing with your little or big project.

Using Procrastination to Your Advantage

We always think of ways to fight procrastination, but what if we used it to our advantage? Wouldn’t it be more efficient that way? How do we use procrastination to become productive, especially in goal setting?

Using Procrastination to Your Advantage

It’s easy. Instead of procrastinating on the important tasks, why don’t we start procrastinating on doing things that aren’t really important? For example, say you want to go on facebook. What you do is, tell yourself you’ll do it later. Stop yourself from easily diving in front of the computer and staying hooked on doing something irrelevant. Tell yourself and while you’re at it, convince yourself that you can do it later when you’ve completed your important tasks.

Why don’t you try doing that today? Try it once and see if it’ll make a difference to you in terms of being productive.
