I know that achieving goals in life is very important; however, in my opinion, your focus should be to achieve success in life.
In addition to that, you aren’t doing your career any favors if you aren’t putting in any work.
The paraphrased version has fewer words and thus is more concise than the original.
Focus on some of the dreams that you want to accomplish this year.
How to Stay Focused on Your Dreams
_________ is a very powerful word, it has the ability to build a massive foundation in which you can build a great empire.
1. Keep Thinking of the Big Picture
What I’m trying to say is, that we all have some parts of our passions that we find mundane. And we tend to avoid focusing on them, unless of course we go beyond that, and seek help.
So don’t get bogged down in small and petty details in your head. Just think about the bigger picture. That all of the things you’re doing are contributing to the big picture.
You can’t become successful skipping the parts you don’t like but if you really want that big picture you can put in the efforts and the time and get to it.
2. Get Into a Daily Routine
If something becomes a part of your daily routine, you’re likely to neglect things that could make you better, or even worse. If you notice this, you may benefit from changing the habit.
Daily routines are some of the strongest aspects of an individual’s life and how they live it.
When you’re busy, you’re on autopilot. This is not an easy place to be, and it is harder to keep your focus on what you want to achieve if you are not paying attention to your daily routine. Daily routines in the form of to-do lists and habits can serve as a means of staying on track and focused on your goals.
The more you practice, the more you’ll learn. You can’t learn unless you do… but if you do it a lot, then you’ll learn it very fast. So, practice makes perfect.
The discipline to incorporate needed knowledge into your daily routine will make you great at what you want to become great at.
Once you have a daily routine, and you know what is important to you, and you have made sure that all the activities you are committed to are important, then set yourself a timer for five minutes and just start doing the thing you know you should be doing.
3. Always Plan What’s Important First
In order to get a free time and a good rest you have to do the most important and biggest tasks first.
However, they’re also the most difficult and gruelling of tasks, feared by many. The smaller tasks are the easiest to do, they’re quick and simple, and still give you that same satisfaction of completion that big tasks do.
Now let’s take a look at the following example with the [Original]: tag applied to the [Paraphrase].
The most important step to learn how to code is to learn how to think logically. There’s no amount of “knowledge” that can be given to you, nor can any amount of information be stored inside your head. It is something that must be learned, rather than something that is handed over.
The first rule of time management: no matter how big the task, never start on complicated stuff first. You’ll get overwhelmed and end up not doing anything.
The next thing to master: prioritization. Once you have your tasks, you need to prioritize your tasks.
4. Learn to Use the Word No
Successful people know how to use the word ‘no’ because it stops them getting what they want.
When other people ask them for favors or to do things for them, they feel obligated and they don’t want to be selfish. This is because they want to be like their friends and family who have helped them in the past.
So when there’s some unproductive things you’re tempted to do during your day, teach yourself the discipline of saying “no” to unimportant distractions and to focus on what’s important.
5. Remember Why You Started
It was because you loved watching movies and wanted to have a career that would allow you to make something out of the things that you love so much.
As you go along, your reasons for doing a thing become less and less clear. They’re muddied with the passage of time. They lose their original clarity.
When you get frustrated by the lack of results and you feel like you’re being dragged into the mud, you know you’re working hard on a project that’s going nowhere.
6. Run from Something
This makes it easier to avoid something unpleasant than to actively seek out the opportunity to face it head on.
In the case of the U.S., it’s definitely not the end of the world, or I believe any of us would have lost our lives, our homes, our families, our loved ones and everything else, so we definitely have so much left to lose as far as what we’re running from.
You won’t have a million dollars, but you’ll definitely have the freedom that comes with having $100,000.
if you play a game that doesn’t take very long you will run twice as fast because the whole game takes half the time of a normal game.
I was saying that you would be able to run faster, and there’d still be a significant chance to grab the cash. I didn’t mean that you would be faster in both scenarios. I meant you would be slower in the second scenario, which is something I didn’t say.
So how do you do that?
Well, the first step is to recognize that you’re dealing with an issue that you need to resolve and you need to be willing to do so.
A lot of things influence you to do something. Sometimes you can’t control those things. But if you focus on those negative things as the source of your motivation, you can’t help but fail.
7. Stop Reaching for Crumbs & Go for the Cake
Â I remember watching this speech many years back and at that time, I was pretty young. She explains how she didn’t want to live the way that she was living, to be in a relationship in which there were many differences with her boyfriend.
She was moving her fingers to pick a crumb when the cake was right in front of her.
We wanted to make sure we stayed focused, and in order to do that we wanted to make sure we stayed focused on our mission which was to make the game as hard as we could.
It’s easy to focus on these small things, but when you actually do things, you’re going to be much more successful. You’re going to achieve more, and you’re going to hit much further goals.
This is actually what I did on my path to become a real estate agent.
If your goal is too big, you’ll get nowhere. You’ll just end up overwhelmed and tired, and you won’t see the end result. Focus on the smaller things, the daily minutiae, so that when you get your big goal, it’s already a done deal.
I have to do it, I have to do it. I don’t know why, I don’t even know why.
1. Start by setting big goals for yourself.
2. Don’t compare yourself to others.
3. Do your best, and keep trying.
4. Get clear on your priorities.
5. Prioritize your to-do list.
6. Create a vision board.
7. Keep it interesting.
