Busy times like this are great opportunities for clarity and focus. Yet, because there are so many demands in life, it’s easy to let the wheels fall off the wagon and lose focus on your goals in important areas if you don’t have the right strategies in place. I’ve put together 3 tips on how to stay focused on your goals while maintaining high energy levels and motivation.
It’s a quick read, Let me know what you think!
Taking care of our health and happiness is the closest thing to a “Magic Bullet” that exists in life
We all know it, but few people take the message to heart each day. Our health is the foundation of everything we do in life. When we are healthy, fit, and full of energy it facilitates greater success in everything else we do.
It improves our mindset and motivation and allows us to think more clearly and stay focused on our goals. We get more of the right things done, and there’s a much greater chance our happiness level will increase. Plus, it flat-out beats being sick, tired, stressed, and disengaged from life!
As a coach, not much of my methods or approach is profound (every once in a while a gem is uncovered), but that’s fine. People don’t need earth-shattering insights daily.
In fact, I will put it out there that most people already know the fundamentals…they just don’t do them.
The following points make up 99% of the advice I see from competent coaches:
- Be consistent
- Success is the cumulative result of actions and choices over the long term
- Focus on the fundamentals
- There is no “quick fix” solution
- If you struggle for a day or two…get back up and get back on track
Definitely not rocket science! Sure, every good coach has their own unique way of making these points relevant, sticky, and timely. But the vast majority of what is shared is just a sound direction for behavior change and success in general.
Habits are the vehicle that allows us to stay focused on our goals
This is where most people struggle to create positive change. They understand where they want to go, they just have trouble getting there and making their goals a reality.
Positive, high-performance habits are the areas that I struggled with most in life. While I still have a long way to go in many areas, making changes here has had the single biggest impact on my results in every area of life from personal to business, to fitness.
There are many habits we can have, and everyone will need to focus on different areas. With that being said, a few key habits are universally beneficial for staying focused on your goals, and in life in general. These are:
- Morning Success Routine
- Daily Energy & Productivity Habits
- Evening Wrap-up Routine
- Effective Planning (most people fail to maximize their planning
Again – not rocket science. I’m willing to bet you already know these things….but are you DOING them on a daily basis?
We must have passion, purpose, and fun to be happy
A life without purpose is drudgery. Everything seems difficult and takes far too long. Yet, hard work and effort are enjoyable and attract us when that work is going towards something of value, beyond merely a paycheque.
When we can tap into what we are most passionate about, and clearly see what we desire, we can reframe our focus around embracing the journey towards that worthy goal. Then, we’ve already succeeded, whether or not we actually accomplish the end goal.
The challenge is that most people never identify and harness this power when focusing on their goals, so they continue to struggle with their health, happiness, and performance in life.
