In today's fast-paced environment it is often easy to lose sight of the core values and concepts that enable us to maximize our productivity and move towards leading happier and healthier lives.
All too often when we decide to take on a new endeavor we bite off more than we can chew.
We blindly rush into new projects without taking the time to set realistic goals for ourselves. We over-extend ourselves or perhaps try to work beyond our capabilities.
In this manner we sabotage ourselves and often lose interest or give up out of frustration before we have even come close to achieving our goals.
Learn how to set yourself up for success, not failure when setting goals and taking on new endeavors.
Think of this process as creating a chain. Each link must be carefully forged so that it has sufficient strength to support the others.
If one link fails then the entire chain falls apart along with all of the hard work that went into making it.
Be prepared to proceed slowly and methodically when starting a new habit so that it will be well-crafted and able to withstand the test of time.
You will be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you can accomplish your goals if you focus your attention on developing, implementing, and maintaining the proper habits, rather than trying to fast forward to the end result.
Learning how to take a few minutes for yourself each day and focus on one key concept at a time will greatly enhance your ability to achieve personal growth and success.
Remember, the first habit is to "Get into the habit of developing good habits!"
