Achieving Your New Year's Resolution
Have a new year's resolution? Have a plan to achieve it? TheBrain can help.
Whether you intend to open a new business, get a promotion, or just lose ten pounds, you need to know how you are going to get there. A goal without proper planning and reviewing is just an idea.
Here are five simple steps that you can take in TheBrain to help you actually achieve whatever it is you're setting out to do.
Focus on quantity rather than quality. No idea is too big or too small in this phase. Bring any data that you might think is relevant to your eventual success. Web pages, documents, notes and thoughts. Get them all into your digital brain to reflect upon later.
Time to clean up. Create some intervening thoughts and group together similar topics for easy access in the future. Delete anything that may be completely unrealistic. Add additional content when something sparks a new idea.
Now that you've educated yourself in some of the steps you'll be taking to achieve your goal, set up some checklist for important milestones you want to attain along the way. Use TheBrain reminders for reliable assistance. Format your schedules within structured tables within your notes. By taking these steps, you'll be holding yourself accountable for making progress along the way.
Create a thought for journaling. Getting ideas and thoughts out of your head and into your digital brain will allow you to reflect on your success and learn from missteps along the way.
No one has a crystal ball. You may have been too ambitious at the beginning of your journey. Maybe you were too reserved. With all of the documented progress you've kept in TheBrain, there's always an opportunity to make adjustments to your schedule and processes to insure that the final result is a good one.
Start documenting the process of achieving your new year's resolution in your existing brain, or use one of the templates below for an inspirational push.
