“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” – Jane Goodall
We are in the second month of the year and a lot of you might have decided to work hard this year in order to achieve their goals. Many of you must have set new goals as well. Setting goals that help you to prosper, succeed and become a better you, and then working towards achieving that goals is something that can be done all year long. However, the complication here is that it is easy to set new goals but working towards achieving them are difficult.
In our PG Diploma Courses, we teach students to develop a habit of goal setting and how to achieve those goals. So if you are thinking of doing PGDM in Hyderabad, these 3 strategies would come in handy in order to achieve your goals:
- Be Thorough With Your Goals
Everyone knows that we need to be utterly specific when it comes to setting organisation goals. However, while setting personal goals, many of us tend to forget this important point. We come across a lot of students who are very clear about what they want to achieve in life, but very few work on how to achieve that goal. It is very important to learn that be it professionally or personally, you need to have how and why in addition to what.
Always remember, if you actually want to achieve your goal, you need to have a clear understanding of all the prospects related to it and doing an how and why analysis would give you a fair idea as to whether you have set a right goal for yourself or not.
- Solicit Feedback From Others
When we set our goals, we share them with our near and dear ones. One of the most common benefit of this is that they keep us accountable for our goals and keep pushing us to work hard in order to achieve them. But apart from this, you can also gain valuable feedback from them in order to understand if what you want to achieve is feasible or not. The course of action you have decided on is the best one or not. Is there any other way you could achieve your goal and so on. Taking feedback time and again helps you constantly improve your effort towards achieving your goal.
- Shift How You Evaluate Your Progress With Time
One of the key to sustainable motivation is not just how much progress you have made towards achieving your goal but also the measure of the progress towards it. For instance, once you start working towards your goal, in the beginning, you can focus on how much you have completed it. The more you complete, the more motivation you will get. However, half-way through, you can shift your focus towards how much of it is left. As you work towards it, the lesser it would remain and hence such perception would keep you motivated to finish it as soon as you can.
