The past few months in 2020 have sped by almost in a blur leaving a lot undone and times uncertain all thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. But the remaining three months don’t have to be that way. You can start now to revisit the goals you’ve probably set earlier in the year that you’re yet to pursue and start taking meaningful steps towards achieving them.
Here’s a quick guide to help you.
Create a plan of action
A plan is like a road map that shows you how to get from point A to point B. Whatever goal you have set apart for this year – be it with your finances, health, or relationships, draw up a plan to achieve it or at least start moving towards achieving it in the next three months. Write it down – that way, it goes beyond just a wish.
Commit the time and resources required
Procrastination is not just the thief of time, but of opportunities. If you must schedule the actions required to take you closer to your goals, do it. If you need to reach out to anyone, do some research, or make new connections to get you closer to those goals, do it. Remember, your goal is to achieve more before December comes knocking.
Psych yourself up
Self-talk is the greatest motivation there is because you tend to believe what you say to yourself more than what others say to/about you. 2020 is not over yet – tell yourself that a lot can turn around in three months. Even if it sounds like a lie initially, repeat it to yourself and keep taking the necessary steps required to achieve your goals. Soon, you’ll start believing it and of course, start living it.
You can also achieve more with your retirement savings when you make Additional Voluntary Contributions to your RSA. More is always better than less.
Keep tomorrow looking good!
