This engaging cartoon doodle video illustrates why reaching your goals is all about a steady step-by-step progress. The important thing is to start somewhere, even if it is with just a small step forward.
And as a bonus to the video, here are 9 tricks you can use to stay motivated and energetic in order to finish what you’ve started:
- Have a healthy breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It provides you with the energy you need to accomplish your task and improves memory and concentration levels.
- Exercise in the morning. Although any time of the day is good for working out, a bit of physical activity in the morning will help you wake up and will improve your mood.
- Remind yourself of your goals. Before you start your day take a minute to remember what your goals are. These can be both long-term and short-term goals, just something to remind you what all of this is for.
- Plan your day in advance. If you have a clear to-do list for the day it will be easier to stay organized and motivated. Plus, when you put a check mark on things from the list that are done, it will remind you that you are moving forward with your tasks and you will feel better about yourself.
- Work on the most important tasks in the morning. Research shows that people are most productive for about 3 hours an hour after they wake up, so make sure to use this time to get the high-priority tasks out of the way.
- Listen to positive audio programs or music throughout the day (on your way to work, during lunchtime). It will give you an adrenaline rush to keep your spirits high. Did you know that you can Stimulate Your Own Endorphins Using Brainwave Entrainment?
- Use positive affirmations. When you wake up visualize having a good day and say something like “Today is going to be a great day”.
- Do something new. It is easy to get stuck in a rut with all the daily chores, but try to occasionally mix it up a little bit. It can be something simple like going to a new restaurant for dinner, making a new recipe at home or trying out a new sport.
- Get rid of the clutter. Excess things in your surroundings can have a negative impact on your ability to focus and process information. If you don’t know where to start – here are 5 Creative Ways to Declutter Your Home And Your Life.
