How to Accomplish Goals!

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to my page. As per usual, I hope that the information you find here is helpful, but I don’t claim to know anything for sure! Life is all about trial and error. Part of that trial and error means setting goals and seeing what comes of those goals. So, here are some {hopefully} helpful tips on how to accomplish your goals:


  1. What are your goals?

This seems silly, but sometimes it takes verbalizing your goals to help you complete them. Firstly, WHAT is your goal? Be very specific. Break it down to its most basic parts. Secondly, HOW are you going to accomplish that goal? This again goes back to the basic parts elements; how are you going to accomplish each individual part of your goal. This seems tedious and very extensive, but the extra work will make you 89% more likely to accomplish that goal (that was a number I completely made up, it has no real value haha).

  1. Are You Being Realistic?

This can be a very difficult thing to ask. Sometimes the best way to accomplish your goals is to make sure they are good goals to have in the first place. Also, make sure that the parameters you set around your goals are realistic. For example, just because this is an easy one to explain, setting a goal like “I want to lose 50 pounds in 1 week” doesn’t set realistic expectations around your goal. This sets you up for failure, and when you don’t reach that goal you become discouraged and that can sometimes dissuade you from setting other goals.

  1. Break it Up…Or Down.

When trying to accomplish a goal, you need to break it down. This can mean doing many different things. 1. Breaking it up by section. In tip one I said to break down your goal into smaller manageable parts; this is a great way to get small wins on the way to your ultimate win! 2. Breaking it up by time. Some goals can’t really be broken down into smaller segments, they just take kind of a long time to complete. In this case, one of the best ways to handle your goal is devote a certain amount of time to the goal and then leave it alone. This is also super helpful when you’re trying to manage more than one goal at a time. For example, at school, I can sometimes be working on 5 different assignments at once and THAT can get overwhelming! So, I break it up by time. I say “Ok, I am going to work on assignment A for 45 minutes”. Then I set a timer, and work on assignment A for 45 minutes. After that it is over until I work on other things. This allows me to make sure I get something done without getting overwhelmed, and I get to have a small sense of accomplishment.

  1. Don’t Be Discouraged When You Get to the Error Part.

Lastly, don’t be discouraged when you sometimes reach the error part of trial and error. We set a lot of goals, but not all of them pan out. What you need to rely on is your perspective. Maybe this goal didn’t work out, even if you did every step right and thoroughly planned, BUT now you know that you need to approach that goal from a different angle. It’s one method to cross off your list.

That is all I have for today! If you have any additional tips on how to accomplish goals comment them down below! As always, let me know if there are any topics you want me to discuss by clicking the leave a comment button. I hope everyone has a great and stress-free day!!!
