The first thing I’d say is to write down your goals clearly on paper, make sure its specific to your requirements and also specify how long you want to spend each day working on that goal. Make a plan to set aside time every day or whenever you can to sit and work on whatever it is with no distractions! One thing to remember, you don’t have to spend all day working on your goals , if you want to that’s fine but realistically you want to move your day around, by maybe getting some air , exercising this way you’re doing other activities and that can help with ‘refreshing’ yourself. A good way to manage this is to block out specific time, for example 1 hour blocks working then having a 10 minute break, then resuming for maybe 2 hours then after that do something different.
Another great thing to do is to have a reward system in place for yourself, so if do work say for 2 hours, after that two hours you could go out for lunch somewhere nice and reward yourself, or just simply eat something that you enjoy, or just do something that brings you pleasure then go back to the task. The feeling you get from this is pleasurable too and helps you to get motivation. This will also build up momentum.
Removing distractions is also an important thing to do because it’s so easy to get distracted and if you can manage this you can narrow your focus to just that one thing that really is important to you. If you’re passionate about something you will most likely achieve whatever it is you want, because the passion you have is extremely powerful. If you want to be successful you have to put the work in, and most importantly cut all the distractions that will hold you back: this means turning your phone off, not checking your facebook/twitter, not searching randomly on the internet, not aimlessly watching tv; you can do any of these things once the hard work is done! Discipline is the key here! Master your ability to avoid temptation. All the hard work will eventually pay off and this is something you have to trust that will happen because when you trust the process, you flow with it.
What’s great about the hard work, is eventually it becomes part of you, you find your flow with it or in some cases you do the hard work and that’s it, you don’t really need to do anything else!
