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.

Resentment is a common emotion, though commonly misunderstood. We may not always be able to control our other emotions, but we at least understand anger, love, despair and the rest.

Before we can deal with resentment, we need to understand what it is and how it affects us. Resentment is a feeling of displeasure or indignation that stems from an incident, real or perceived, that is hurtful. When you resent someone it will color all your future interactions, no matter how trivial, with that person.
