Motivation Saturdays – Setting Goals

Hi lovely readers,

Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is relaxing and refreshing. Today I’m going to be starting a new series on motivation that I’ll be updating everyday Saturday. I’m going to start by focusing on goal lists, one of the most crucial aspects of finding my motivation every morning.

First, I recommend sitting down with a concerted amount of time to spend on this task, and in front of you, a pen, a journal or some loose paper if you don’t have one, and if you’re like me and enjoy some visuals, your Pinterest open or some colouring pencils or markers. Then, envision your life just as you’d like it. Start within the week – what would the next week look like in an ideal world? What would you accomplish? What would you feel like? Who would you surround yourself with? Write it down, bullet form, leaving space underneath that section. Then move onto the month, then the next 6 months, then a year, then 5 years, doing the same thing each time. Draw pictures or print out images that you find online to bring your visualization to life.

Then I recommend that, underneath each of these sections of inspiration, you write how you can accomplish these things, as though you are making a to-do list. Really break it down: if you want to be healthier, you could write that you’re going to make a green smoothie every morning. If you want to be feel confident being single, you could challenge yourself to go do and enjoy things alone like a movie or a dinner. Do this for all of your sections, and make sure you find things you can do every single day.

Finally, take out your planner or your phone calendar if you prefer to keep things digital. Set times and actually schedule in the activities you’d come up with to accomplish your goals and achieve your dreams. If you need to, use your phone to audibly remind you when you’re supposed to be doing these things.

After a week, look back at your list and see how you’ve done. Are you on track? Do you need to add extra accountability to your goal-chasing? Do the same at each timing check point, and I recommend making a new weekly goal list every Monday or whatever day works best for you.

Thank you for stopping by and reading, and I hope you find today’s post motivational and helpful!

Lots of love,
Liz
