Micro goal setting

~Mehul Rawat

You don’t try to build a wall, you don’t set out to build a wall.
You don’t say I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built. You don’t start there.
You say I’m gonna lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid,
and you do that every single day,
and soon you have a wall.
-Will Smith

Do you set goals and fail to achieve them?
Well, I think that the quote I mentioned above might give you a hint on why you fail.

In general, when we do our goal setting, we always set out to build a wall.
And in doing so, we fail to focus on the most basic unit, the brick.

When we set our weekly, monthly and yearly goals, we fail to understand that we will only achieve those goals if we handle every single day right.
We just need to focus on the most basic unit first, because if we have productive hours, our day will be productive, if we have productive days, our week will be productive.

So, just focus on making the next hour as productive as you can make it. Keep on doing that for every hour till your day ends and soon you will have a productive day.
Keep doing this for several days and soon you’ll have a productive week.
Keep doing this for several weeks and soon you’ll have a productive month.
Instead of focusing on long term goals, if we focus on short term goals, the cumulative of those short term goals might yield us better results.

If you don’t find the time, if you don’t do the work, you don’t get the results -Arnold Schwarzenegger
