In this blogpost, I will be giving detailed information on how I achieve my daily goals and remain productive. But before I get into it, below are the things I currently have on my table.
- Education: Master’s in Finance
- Blogger: Kennysdiary
- Book club: kennsybookclub
- Running a business
- Job: Work 3 days a week
- Social life
These are the things I currently have on my table and have to fit into my daily/weekly routine. As much as I am grateful for all of these things, sometimes it gets overwhelming, and I just feel like quitting.
So, the real reason I have decided to put this blog post up, is to help anyone out there with a busy schedule but do not know how to manage them.
Below are my top 3 ways of achieving my daily goals and remaining productive
1. BE AN EARLY BIRD
Like I said in one of my previous blog posts, if you want to have a successful productive morning/life you have to cultivate the habit of waking up early. I wake up 6am every day and what I notice is that I am more productive during this time of the day. Also, the serenity and quietness that comes with been up at that time is immaculate. Although, waking up early takes a lot of motivation and determination. But, when you have goals to achieve, then you have no choice or excuse.
2. PLAN YOUR DAY/WEEK
Planning is key: if you want to actualise your dream, you have to plan on how and when you will get things done. No, what makes a good plan is not the number of tasks you need to finish on your to-do-list. A good plan is a plan that can be fixed that day. Be realistic with your planning and do not go overboard with the things you set for yourself.
3. SPARK YOUR MOTIVATION
Last but not least, spark your motivation. Losing track of our goals can potentially make us lose our motivations. You have to be aware of what you are trying to achieve. If you are aware of what you are grinding for, but you still feel unmotivated, then below are some strategies that helps me and can help you stay motivated to achieve what you want in life.
- Keep a journal: write down your thoughts, goals, ideas and dreams. In my personal diary, I have in it my daily affirmations and the things I am grateful for.
- Be your own motivator: it all comes down to what keeps you motivated right? There’s been days I just don’t feel like myself and I just don’t want to do anything but then I remember why I started and what I want and just like that, I get my motivation back. Don’t get me wrong, it is totally fine to feel like doing nothing the whole day but make sure it’s not every day. You have to always find a way to refill your motivation and remain inspired and determined.
- Turn envy on its head: a lot people do not understand that hating on others can really limit your potential. Instead of scrolling through social media and hating on other people success, you should instead try to figure out how they achieve their goals and how they became successful in it.
