The Mental Side

 One goal at a time

Here’s the thing. If you focus on 4 big goals at one time, the odds that you will achieve any one of them go way down.

Because you are distracted. It is not easy to focus on multiple goals at the same time.

It’s much easier to achieve one goal than to try to achieve 3 or 4 at one time.

Maybe that’s the first secret of goal accomplishment 🙂

Focus on one big goal at a time. Finish it.

Then start another.

On down the road, once you become good at “finishing” – then you can add another goal.

Work on 2 goals at a time.

If that goes well…consider adding another.

If it does not go well, go back to one goal at a time.

==========================================================

Changing the way you think about or perceive stress can change what stress does to you – see stress as a positive.

stressStress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

No matter if you work online like me – or in an office or at sea 🙂

Being happy makes your job easier …
