Some goals can seem elusive and some people can have great difficulty connecting the dots in between the idea of a goal and the end result of achieving it. What needs to be done is seeing the end result, believing it’s possible, creating steps to achieve it and putting those steps into daily actions, which will result in achieving the goal.
Working backwards can help a person to understand how to achieve a goal. For instance, if a teenager wants to get a driver’s license to drive, their end result of the goal is driving. The teenager should ask, “If I want to drive, what must I do?” The answer of, “I need to have a driver’s license” shows what the second to last step is to achieving the goal. To get a driver’s license, the teen has to take the driving portion of the test. To take the driving test, the teen has to take the written portion of the test. By thinking in reverse, everything is answered as to what is necessary to proceed to the next step. Input how long each steps takes in duration of time so that daily or weekly goals can be implemented.
Now that a person has all the steps in between the idea of the goal and the end result of achieving it, they can arrange their schedule so that these steps are done daily or as often as possible to keep on track with achieving the goal. This may mean cutting out things in a schedule that are not necessary, such as checking social media a few times per day or reducing the amount of television watched. Take out things from the schedule that is not necessary to a person’s well-being and to achieving the goal to make time for the steps to achieve the desired goal.
At times, reducing the things in the physical environment can help assist with achieving a goal. This is especially true for those people who are visual learners. The environment, how messy it is and how cluttered it is can interrupt thinking and focusing on a goal. This is why choosing a place like SugarCube Building’s Neighborhood and similar places can help to clear the mind and live a life where a life gets better and better from continually achieving goals. Anything is possible for the person who believes they can accomplish a goal.
