As we approach a new year, What have you done to finish out this year strong in preparation for the new? It is very critical that you set goals for how you will address all the 8 dimensions of wellness in your life. The 8 dimensions of wellness are: physical, social, financial, environmental, occupational, emotional , spiritual and intellectual. Choose one goal to work towards in each dimension and then prioritize them. Setting your priorities is very important regardless if you have a short term or long term plan. Surely, there are many ways to act on a certain task but there is no easier way to succeed in planning and accomplishing something other than identifying and ranking first the main concerns and then focus on it. If you can do that, the chance of becoming successful is high.
Prioritizing is a Must to effectively use your time to gain the most value out of your day.You can effectively set your priorities by following some basic guidelines. The initial step should be identifying and setting up your goals. The idea is clear; you cannot plan further without knowing the purpose of what you are doing.
Once your goals are already clear to you, you can create a targeted plan that will help you achieve your goals as easy as possible without leaving a single detail undone. Having said that, it is best that you work in balance, as there might be some important details that are also your priorities that will be left out. If that happens, expect to have minor to major problems as you progress in your tasks when there is overlapping in the process.
Talking about overlapping, you can avoid it if you will organize your tasks and schedules. There are a lot of methods and materials that you can use to help you arrange, classify and perform your tasks effectively. Some of the resources are even automated and it means faster and easier operation. You may want to try those nifty things. I personally use http://www.simpleology.com
Lastly, keep your focus and enthusiasm as it can help you do your job efficiently while enjoying what you are doing. It is important that you maintain your overflowing desire to achieve your goals because the truth is, achieving something is
definitely draining. There will be times that you will feel tired and uninterested, if that happens, just imagine how delighted you were when you first achieved your goals and for sure you will want to get back to it.
Remember that your time is valuable, don't you waste it or let anyone else waste it.
"Life is just a minute only sixty seconds in it, forced upon you, can‘t refuse it. Didn‘t seek it, didn‘t choose it, but It‘s up to you to use it. You must suffer if you lose it, give an account if you abuse it, just a tiny little minute, but eternity is in it." — Dr. Benjamin E. Mays
