The T in SMART Stands for Time

We’re all collectively work on creating daily value in our lives so that we experience life versus simply existing.

I mentioned last week that there is an 80/20 rule to goal setting. So let me run it down for you. We have gotten specific about what we want, realized the realistic aspect of accomplishing our goals but putting a suspense date or time limit or certain tasks is necessary. 

TIME. How much TIME are you giving yourself to check items off of your list?

Basically whatever you spend the most of your time trying to accomplish (80%) is most beneficial and meaningful to you. Leaving you with 20% of time used to eliminate nuisances.

So use your time wisely. 

Begin with What can you do today? What can you do next week? What can you do next month?

Your mindset plays a major role in what you accomplish. Your attitude has to be set up in such a way that no matter what comes your way, you stay committed to your plan of action to make your life better.

It’s okay to dream but in order to grow and experience the personal transformation that we seek, we have to be firm and intentional with our effort and measure our progress with integrity.

Quitting is not an option and as I continue to guide your thoughts, the beauty in working on yourself is getting real with who you are and what you represent while making personal adjustments.

Getting Specific gives you direction. Measuring your progress gives you insight to your productivity. The attainability of your goals keeps you focused on completing one thing at a time versus a life-long to-do list. Being realistic helps your adjust your goals to your lifestyle to reap the full benefits of what you strive to have. Time…BE PRODUCTIVE versus BUSY!

Life is in the power of the tongue. Your self talk needs to be clear so that your continued effort translates to your mindset. So take pride in your self improvement.

Set your goals. Stay quiet about them if you want to. Crush them continually, and clap for yourself as you move along. 

Speak life into your dreams and step into your authority to make it happen.

That’s all I have for you this week. 

Listen yall, I’d be remiss if I didn’t say, thank you for rocking with your girl. You can find me on FB @drlatilyarashon and IG @iamdrlatilyarashon for more insightful tips on being you, doing you, for you, and I look forward to connecting with you soon.

I’ll check in with yall later.

Failing to Set Realistic Goals is a Plan to Fail

Don’t sell yourself short of your dreams by failing to set realistic goals.

There is an 80/20 rule to goal setting which is why we have to be specific about what we want. Measuring how long it may take us to accomplish certain goals and the attainability of set goals is an ongoing process. But now I want talk to you all about being REALISTIC in your personal transformation. Ask yourself, are you being real about the work you say you want to do?

Now there are some things that we simply cannot do liking walking on the surface of the sun because that is not humanly possible. But if you are into science you can definitely become an astronaut and walk on the moon. So you have to approach setting your goals from a standpoint that speaks to your abilities. Real talk, you may even have to ask yourself if the goals you’re striving to reach fit your lifestyle? Will they benefit your career? Your family? Will they add value to areas of your life for a better quality of life.

Be real with yourself and work hard because when people see what you’re realistically trying to accomplish, they will support you.

It’s all in your mind. The attitude you develop towards your goal will carry you further than having an astronomical list of things to do that read more like a bucket list than reality.

It’s okay to dream but in order to grow and experience the personal transformation that we seek, we have to be firm in the goals we set for ourselves and measure our progress with integrity.

Quitting is not an option and as I continue to guide your thoughts, the beauty in working on yourself is getting real with who you are and what you represent while making personal adjustments.

Getting Specific gives you direction.

Measuring your progress gives you insight to your productivity. 

The attainability of your goals keeps you focused on completing one thing at a time versus a life-long to-do list. 

Being realistic helps you get your life in order. You can shoot for the stars

Life is in the power of the tongue. Your self talk needs to be clear so that your continued effort translates to your mindset. So take pride in your self improvement.

Set your goals. Stay quiet about them if you want to. Crush them continually, and clap for yourself as you move along. Speak life into your dreams and step into your authority to make it happen.

Stay lifted in this season.

How to Set Attainable Goals

Download Here

Can you all believe that we are in the last month of quarter three and we will soon be saying, “Happy New Year”. So now is the time to start forward planning so that we can knock the rest of 2020 out of the park. Realistically, there comes a time when we not only have to prioritize our goals but we have to be SMART about it. We get specific about what we want and determine how to measure our progress.

But ask yourself, are your goals ATTAINABLE?

Ask yourself if your goals are too far-fetched? Setting yourself up to strive for certain things in life is extremely personal. You want to avoid being too broad in your thinking.

The objective is to make a list and check it twice. If your goals are too far reaching, you can easily set yourself up to burnout and never complete anything you originally set out to do.

Identify inside of yourself the most attainable goal you would like to achieve and work until you reach it. It’s better to be the master of one than the master or none.

It’s all in your mind. The attitude you develop towards your goal will carry you further than having an astronomical list of things to do that read more like a bucket list than reality.

It’s okay to dream but in order to grow and experience the personal transformation that we seek, we have to be firm in the goals we set for ourselves and measure our progress with integrity.

Quitting is not an option and as I continue to guide your thoughts, the beauty in working on yourself is getting real with who you are and what you represent while making personal adjustments.

Getting Specific gives you direction.

Measuring your progress gives you insight to your productivity. 

Now examining the attainability of your goals keeps you focused on completing one thing at a time versus a life-long to-do list. 

Life is in the power of the tongue. Your self talk needs to be clear so that your continued effort translates to your mindset. You inspire people who pretend not to see you, so take pride in your self improvement.

Some mid-week motivation and I hope you stay lifted.

One of the Quickest and Easiest Ways to Achieve Your Goals

Measure Your Progress Towards Your Goals

I have to say being back to work and pursuing my dream to be my own boss I am walking it like I talk as I share how I’m working on creating daily value so that I experience life versus simply existing.

There comes a time when we not only have to prioritize our goals but we have to be SMART about it. We got specific last week because that is the first step to successfully completing your goals. The second step is measuring your progress. 

So let’s continue on this journey of creating SMART goals together.  Are you ready? Let’s talk about Measuring Your Progress

Examine your list of goals and aspirations. If you have not created a list for yourself, I suggest that you do because you have to hold yourself accountable for your dreams. It’s your responsibility and you determine the amount of time it will take for you to complete certain tasks. For example, going off to college people estimate that they will graduate in four years, but sometimes that fifth year is needed to perhaps meet all requirements and boost their GPA prior to applying to graduate school. 

Whether it’ll take you one month or one year to cross some things off of your list, you should have in your mind how long you envision completing certain tasks. If you see that some of your objectives are taking longer to complete, don’t give up. The beauty in this is that you can make adjustments.

Look at your goal one: You may say I want to be healthier. So does that mean you will work out x number of days and change your diet? What adjustment do you need to make to reach your healthier goal? How much time are you giving yourself to see the results?  You can measure that progress from week to week and month to month. But you must be definitive.

Stay the course and accomplish what you can. Remember that everything worth having will not always s come easy. 

Whether it’s a task or an objective the specificity and measurability of your goal begins when you speak it into the atmosphere. 

Life is in the power of the tongue. So as you write down your goals be clear and measure your progress by the short tasks you have completed based on the priority they have towards your ultimate goal. As I said last week if your vision is not clear to you, it won’t translate well and you will risk becoming counterproductive resulting in no progress being made at all.

Remember things may change, but when you work on one goal at a time, you’ll be pleased to look back on where you started and realize that you have been putting in the work and it’s only up from here.

Continue to speak life into your dreams and step into your authority to make it happen.

We’ve gotten SPECIFIC now we are about to MEASURE OUR PROGRESS.

Check back next week as I share with you how we will determine if our goals are attainable.
