BREAK IT DOWN TO SMALLEST PARTS
By little” quote buddha.. like a water pot is filled with drops of water Problem with goals: “where do you want to be?” can say anything… It doesn’t matter! Focus on the NOW and steps to get there! More likely to be successful. Also heard that if you have to eat an elephant, what should you do? One bite at a time. Right! So when you break down your goals into pieces, you make things happen rationally. For example, if you want to read a book in one-week & it has 300 pages. How you read it in a week? 300/7 = 42.5, almost if you read just 43 pages a day, you will end up finishing a book in only seven days.
Swell to time allotted. Always Set a deadline! Two student groups write three papers in 30 days. Group A turn in whenever they want. Group B strict weekly deadlines. Ones in group B did WAY better than group A! Because they had a tight deadline for submitting the work. A smartphone is the biggest productivity tool if you use it in its way. When you want to do anything, set a timer for 30 or 45. Studies show that when you set a deadline, your mind feels pressure and now said its time to get things done.
20 Min breakdown of day for a week. The audit of your time will be a good practice. Write the things you’ve done in the last 24 hours then analyze which are best for you & against you. Then cut off the unhelpful stuff and promise to yourself that it will not happen again. Otherwise, I pay plenty.
