How to Achieve Your Goals and Dreams
My daily goals have led to the achievement of the bigger tasks for the week and months. Today I will share some of the strategies that you can apply to improve your work and life.
Every human being has dreams and goals. We have many things in mind that we usually want to accomplish; large and small.
Though, there is a common mistake we usually make when it comes to setting goals. Everyone makes the same error day in day out. We make new resolutions at the beginning of the year that by mid or end of the year I will have achieved this or that. But when the day comes you have not achieved a single goal.
The main problem is, we set a deadline and miss one important thing: a schedule
In most cases we set a goal and put our focus on the end, what we want to achieve. If we don’t hit the target, we mostly count ourselves as failures.
