Welcome to this short post about some tips to keep track and on track of your weekly goals. It will help I believe to keep you motivated if you have short term weekly goals instead of pushing for stressful, and unrealistic timelines. Here you can see my suggestion and you can also read my Medium post below on ‘keeping track of your goals.’
1) Try to set small achievable goals throughout the week;
2) Don’t push yourself beyond your current limit;
3) Engage with others to tell them what you want to achieve;
4) Be able to complete the goals and don’t dwell on any shortcomings or failures;
5) Try to reward yourself as little as possible as it isn’t that healthy in the first place, you are human not dog;
6) Don’t be tempted to change a goal because you can’t be bothered anymore.
As you can see this is merely 6 tips, and there exists a whole lot of literature on mental health, motivation and happiness which may or may not be of significant help to you. I am currently reading a book by Richard Wiseman which is fascinating and helpful. I also started reading a practical guide to mental health, or something like that. Both are assisting my writing journey and my life at the moment. In times of difficulty of course motivation can dwindle. With time and the right tools though you can heal and get back on track.
Many thanks for taking the time to read my post and have a wonderful day. Thomas.
