First step:

2 minutes


1. Today, spend a little time writing down your goals. All goals are useful – long-term, short-term, daily – write them all down.
2. Tomorrow, spend 2 minutes in the morning reviewing your most immediate goals. Do this everyday this week.
3. Next week, spend 4 minutes reviewing your goals. If you achieved some of them, cross them out and write down new ones.
4. You may also increase the time spent reviewing goals and planning ahead.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. To make your review sessions a habit, it’s best to do them at the same time of day. We recommend mornings before starting your daily tasks.
✓ Trigger your mind. Have your planner always somewhere visible so you’d get a reflex to reach out for it every morning.
✓ Let the app help. You may also use a reminder function of this app ring for goal review time.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone up to 2 weeks of reviewing your goals daily, celebrate by sharing your achievements with friends or loved ones and see what’s next on your list.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Attainable goals. While long-term goals can be a bit more ambitious, even they should also be attainable and realistic. If you want to climb the Everest, which is possible, you should realistically start learning to climb and climbing smaller peaks right now. Means are just as important as destination.
✓ Plan in steps. Bigger plans may require more preparation. Have intermediate goals set out just as well and make sure they make sense in timeline and your capabilities.
✓ Daily goals. Every task you want to complete can also be treated as a goal. In fact, if you are struggling with motivation rather than means to complete something, framing tasks as goals might be the best option. Just make sure those small daily tasks amount to some bigger goal you want to achieve. That way, you will always see the peak you’re going for.
