How to not give-up on your goals this year

January 2024

Every year in January we all set goals for the upcoming year. We are super enthusiastic and we work hard the entire month. 

By the end of the month when we do not see any concrete difference, we are de-motivated and we give up on our yearly goals.

So, here is the solution on how to not give up on your goals: MINI-GOALS

Mini goals, also known as sub-goals or short-term goals, are smaller, manageable objectives that contribute to the accomplishment of larger, overarching goals.

Create mini-goals by breaking down your long-term goals into smaller steps and focus on climbing one step at a time.

For example, if you want to start reading more do not target to read a book every week , start by reading 1 book in the first month. That becomes your mini-goal. You can break it down further by deciding to read 10 pages a day.

This way you do not burden yourself with too many tasks and focus only on the mini-goal that you have at hand right now. 

This will give you a sense of achievement and motivate you internally to keep going. Celebrate the little achievements of completing a book and reward yourself on that.
