How do you set goals when there is too much to do and too little time to do it?
As a business starter, father of two under 5 years old and husband of 6years, there is never enough time to get everything done. Ever.
Maybe you are one of the privileged few who have set an agenda, created daily habits, and regularly plan and execute a limited number of goals to achieve success!
Or maybe that person is a myth.
With real life, habits form slowly and they are often disrupted by the people around us.
Procrastination becomes an essential part of our self-management because it is easier to waste time on mindless tasks than it is to transition to productive tasks when you only have 15 minutes between cars, children, and whatnot.
Setting and Achieving Goals
I often create overwhelming goals. It always helps to come back to my goals, review them, and adjust them as needed.
While my goal this month is to do list building challenges and a blogging challenge, I want to look at the specific goals I have for finding and connecting with actual people this month.
How Many People?
Part of the list building challenge, I am setting the goal for my personal list, one of my customer’s lists, and for views to my website.
- 25 New Subscribers for My List
- 100 New Subscribers for Aletheia Christian College’s List
- 1000 Total Views on My Blog
With writing, editing, teaching, tutoring, dadding, and husbanding, these goals are less than I was planning when I started the challenges a week ago, but a goal that cannot be adjusted in mid-stride is not a good goal.
What are your goals for this month? Who are people that you need to connect with?
