How to Effectively Track and Accomplish Your Goals

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

When it comes to accomplishing goals, one thing that many people tend to neglect is that goals must be consistently tracked and reviewed. This article suggests four different approaches for effectively tracking your goals.

One of the most common reasons that people don’t get to accomplish their goals is that we tend to get distracted, and we lose track of important things that need to be done consistently in order to move forward towards our goals.

Maybe you have set a perfectly achievable goal and planned every detailed step, but without effectively tracking your goal and knowing your progress, most certainly you will get discouraged when the first obstacle gets in the way and end up giving up on your goal eventually.

Action Management for Peak Performance

One of the most important qualities of almost every millionaire I know is that they are laser focused on managing their time. Personally, I always have a hard time with the term “time management” because in reality, you can’t manage time. But you can manage action.

Mary squirmed in her chair as she continued, “I just don’t know what is wrong with me. Why can’t I just do it? I feel stressed all the time when I’m not writing. ‘I should be writing’, I say to myself, but I don’t. I think, if I just get the laundry done, then I’ll be free to sit down and write the next chapter. But then I don’t. Maybe I need to exercise first, and I go for a run.

I get back home, fully intending to sit down at the computer. But I don’t. And all the while I’m feeling bad and stressed about not writing. What is wrong with me? Maybe I’m just lazy. Or maybe unconsciously I don’t really want to write. Or maybe it just means that I’m not really cut out to be a writer. ‘Writers write’, I tell myself.
