I’m mixing things up a bit today. I had planned to post on what’s in my graphic design tool kit . But since I still need to work on that post [I’ll post that later this week], I want to continue our talk about setting goals for building your dream life. I’ll be completely honest with you, it takes a lot of hard work, time and energy. But its so worth it!
Last week I talked about living your dream life. So by now you should have a detailed description of what your dream life looks like. And hopefully you’ve broken each dream down into a task list. if you haven’t read last weeks post, click here. This isn’t going to make as much sense to you if you haven’t read it.
Goals help us accomplish our dreams and keep us on track. Without goals, we would never move forward. And more importantly, we would never achieve our true potential. If you made a task list last week for each dream you want to build than basically you’ve set your goals. But you also need to know how to go about achieving those goals. This part is actually the easiest part of the process. YAY!
Now I’m not going to lie, I don’t always accomplish everything everyday. But I also have a tendency to take on too much. But if you use a daily to do list for everyday stuff, you can just add the dream life task to it. If not, you should consider doing so. It really does help get stuff done. But that’s another subject on organization I can talk about later.
Which ever dream you choose to build first [most times there’s an order to the way you build these dreams], you should carve out a little time each day to work on one or two task from that list.
If you remember, one of my dreams is to build a business. I broke that down into task that needed to be done in order to do so. The first step I listed was evaluating my abilities and skills. So that would be the first task to work on. Since this task could take a few days I would only add that one to my daily to do’s. If some of the task are smaller and simpler I might be able to add a couple of them.
Only you can decide how much you are able to take on. But keep in mind, dreams take time and there are no short cuts. Keep it balanced and don’t bite off more than you can chew. I get some of you are over achievers, so am I. But you’ll only burn out and never reach your destination. So as they say, “slow and steady wins the race.”
Its the start of a new week, so get to work on the life you always wanted. Its never too late!
I would love to hear about your dreams and how you’re going about accomplishing them. Leave me a comment, let me know how its going. I love to hear from my readers
Have a blessed day!
