goals

Set some goals eh?

Begin with an end in mind

How do we often hear this state­ment? Busi­ness exec­u­tives, entre­pre­neurs, pro­gram­mers and project man­agers would def­i­nite­ly attest how impor­tant it is to visu­al­ize a goal and to have a blue­print of a fin­ished prod­uct from day zero.

Did you know that one of the proven prac­tices of suc­cess­ful peo­ple includes start­ing and end­ing the day with a plan in mind? This makes it easy for them to pri­or­i­tize the things that mat­ter and to pre­vent being dis­tract­ed by sev­er­al fac­tors.

One of the proven prac­tices of suc­cess­ful peo­ple includes start­ing and end­ing the day with a plan in mind. This makes it easy for them to pri­or­i­tize the things that mat­ter and to pre­vent being dis­tract­ed by sev­er­al fac­tors. Now the ques­tion is:

How am I going to do this?

Today, I would like to set some goals, to kick-off my writ­ing. I know it’s dif­fi­cult to stick with a plan — so what’s in a plan? As I men­tioned yes­ter­day, I will be writ­ing 500 words dai­ly. Today, I’m going to write down every­thing here how am I going to do it.

(1) Stop watch­ing tele­vi­sion for more than an hour.

When I am at home and hav­ing some rest, I can­not stop going back to tv to watch movies on HBO or oth­er tv pro­grams that can alle­vi­ate my bore­dom. Maybe by stop watch­ing tele­vi­sion could help me to save more hours in a day and spend it on writ­ing and read­ing books instead.

(2) Avoid using Face­book App for more than 30 min­utes.

Though Face­book was an app devel­oped to make friends and fam­i­lies clos­er togeth­er, I think Face­book also can become an addic­tion. I’ve seen a lot of peo­ple get­ting addict­ed to it, some post­ing their self­ies many times in a day, sor­ry but for me that is van­i­ty, but oh well, who am I to stop them?  It is their free­dom and let them do it.

But for me, to be able to write 500 words dai­ly, I think I “must” avoid using Face­book App for more than 30 min­utes, why? Because Face­book doesn’t end after you scroll at the bot­tom and in every sec­ond, peo­ple love to posts what they are doing, and what they are up to. But hey, I will still use Face­book to be account­able to my writ­ing. I made a promise and a com­mit­ment and so be it.

And last­ly, but the most impor­tant of all

(3) Dis­ci­pline.

Zig Ziglar once said, “Peo­ple often say, moti­va­tion doesn’t last, well nei­ther does bathing – so we rec­om­mend it dai­ly”.

For me, a habit is not a hob­by, a hob­by is some­thing you want­ed to do when you have plen­ty of time, while habit is what you do every­day for a pur­pose. Accord­ing to some research was done by Maxwell Maltz a plas­tic sur­geon in the 1950s, It would only take 21 days of con­sis­ten­cy doing the same things will form a new habit.

This chal­lenge was a tough one because it’s 30 days! But I know it will be worth it.

So, what do I want to accomplish?

I’ve been blog­ging and writ­ing what­ev­er comes to my mind for years already. I want to be bet­ter at writ­ing and com­mu­ni­cat­ing to peo­ple through what I write. I want to write anoth­er book again and regain the habit of writ­ing. What kind of book will I write? Oh well, I don’t have in mind yet, but I will announce it for sure when I have it already.

So, cheers to anoth­er day of writ­ing!
