Some of them, among the most common, are getting fit, quitting smoking, learning a new language or planning a great trip with our partner or friends. Unfortunately, in many cases these purposes fall in a broken bag within a few weeks. But, is there a trick to fulfill them and not be hell? Setting short-term goals will make us see progress much betterDon’t get obsessed with stumbling blocks, but learn from them Some of the mentioned goals, the most popular, are frankly simple to accomplish. It is about creating small habits in our day to day, because we must remember that it is not a sprint, but a background race. Even with that data and it is worth remembering from time to time, the trick to achieve our goals at the beginning of the year is simpler than you can imagine.As highlighted by SciShow, to make the purposes more bearable we just have to think about specific goals with a specific date. That is to say, ‘I am going to propose to lose 10 kg of weight by May 17’. Why do it this way and not throughout the year? The reason is very simple. If we choose this method it will be much easier to see our progress. Another factor that influences is to create feasible purpose within reason. Short-term dates are perfect to see changes and progress along the way. Do not forget that you do not have to obsess over obstacles in progress. Learn from them and use them to achieve that motivational thrust that we all need from time to time.
