Why Rushing Doesn’t Work

The new year always brings great intentions, but these intentions seem to die down by the end of the month. It is great to want to make a change with yourself. In fact, it is encouraged. However, what people fail to realize is that it takes work and true intention to make a change.

One should not wait for the new year to change, you should give yourself that option each day. The “New Year, New Me” mindset is great, but it can be damaging. It gives people a false pretense that they have to change by January 1st, or it is “too late” if they wait any later.

How do you feel when you have to be in a rush? Things can get forgotten, you can become irritable, overworked, and it is not a great outcome overall. You can get something done, but it won’t be what you were looking for. Hence people giving up by the end of the month.

If you are one of the people that tend to stop working on your goals by the end of the month, do not worry! You still have plenty of time to pick up where you left off.

In order to keep a good momentum going year-round, there are a few steps you have to take.

  • Make a realistic plan for yourself.
  • If your goal is to lose weight, look at how much you can realistically lose a month. If you want to make a certain amount of money, look at how much you need to pull in a week to make it to your goal.
  • Set chewable goals
  • Just saying you need to make $5000/month is not enough. Break it down further to how much you need to sell, how many people you need to sign to what plan, etc. Break this part down to a point where you can look at your goals without stressing out.
  • Write & Visualize
  • You will have to physically write and layout your goals.
  • Do the work
  • You have to implement what you write and envision. Saying something won’t make it happen. You will have to roll up your sleeves to get where you want to be.

You do not have to be in a rush to make your goals. Work at your own pace, but just do not stop.
