Why Most People Fail To Achieve New Goals

It’s that time of year.  Everyone starts out with good intentions and makes their new years resolutions.  The only problem is that few ever follow thru.  Most people end up frustrated and aggravated.

Don’t let this be you.  Here’s a great tip!  Get a second brain! You probably already have one in the form of a smartphone.  Don’t rely on memory to reach your goals.  Break your goals down into small steps.  Use an organizer to schedule these steps.

Let’s say you want to workout three days per week.  It won’t happen without making it part of your everyday life.  Find a time that is right for you.  Morning is best if you are one that will be dreading it all day knowing that you have to get it done!  Decide what body parts you will work that day and put it in your calendar.

There are many apps that can help.  I like Omnifocus.  It may be overkill for what you need though.  A much simpler app to use is Todo from Appigo.  I used it for a long time and is great for what most people need in a todo app.  There is a long list of apps that will fit the bill.  You can also use google calendar or your phone calendar.  Set yourself up an alert as a reminder! Get a second brain and stop living by accident.  Live with a purpose!

Scheduling small steps that lead up to a goal is one of the biggest causes of failure when trying to achieve your dreams.
