It is good to know that many people have set goals for the year 2014. This is the perfect time to set our goals because it’s the beginning of the year. It is inspiring to see people set their goals. The energy is high and it is contagious.
I have seen a handful of people set challenges for themselves. For instance, Jeff Goins, Writer have challenged himself and all writers to write 500 words per day for 31 days.
Another blogger Kuripot Pinay have set a 52-Week Saving Challenge where one saves weekly starting with small amounts that grows over time.
What I found common about these challenges is that they have started small and they have divided their goals in tiny bits. (In my free-ebook How Savings Saved my life, I have also discussed setting goals and dividing them mini goals.)
In short, the surefire way to achieve your goals for 2014 is this: Divide your goals into tidbits, bite sizes, doable small things, and stick to them.
You can’t eat an elephant with one bite.
Reaching your target savings takes time.
Losing those extra pounds takes time.
Extinguishing your debts may take time.
Whatever your goals may be, achieve them one stride at a time. And of course, enjoy the process.
What are your goals this year and how do you plan to achieve them? Write in the comments.
P.S. 1: I have received comments that my book is “bitin” (short) and so I have decided to revise it to add more chapters. I have decided to give away my first version for free permanently but those who download my free version until January 7 will get the full version for free, (in exchange for your honest review), after which, I plan to publish in Amazon Kindle for a fee.
