You will spend 90,360 hours working in your life time. Might as well excel at it. Check out our tips to achieve maximum greatness.
1. Write down your goals
Those ideas that have been swirling around in your head for months, commit them to paper. Writing down goals holds you accountable and increases the odds of achieving them, according to a Harvard MBA Program study.
2. Outline your year
Now that you’ve written down your goals, set a timetable. Knowing when you should start and complete your goals creates a clearer picture.
3. Seek a mentor
You don’t know everything, and that’s ok. Find a mentor that can help you navigate troubled waters.
4. Create an accountability team
It’s important to surround yourself with people who will understand your struggles and motivate you to keep pushing.
5. Construct a budget
Dreams are free but they might take some coins to achieve them. Take an honest look at your finances to see where you can subtract to add to your future.
6. Invest in a conference
Looking to learn a lot in a little time? Conferences are a great way to accomplish this.
7. Network on your level
Everyone wants to partner with leaders in their field. But what can you offer that leader? Not much. Working with people who are in the same stage as you will benefit you more.
8. Limit your social media
Social media will distract you from your goals. Sign off for a few hours a day to clear your head of unnecessary information.
9. Leave time for self care
All work and no play is a no go. Don’t let work consume you, schedule me time (here are some suggestions).
10. Stop taking constructive criticism from people who never constructed anything
To quote Jay-Z, “Everybody can tell you how to do it, they never did it.” Before absorbing suggestions, consider the source. Don’t let a never did, tell you how to do.
