How to Stick to Your Goals

So we went through the motions and have went from vague wants to achievable goals. We have a plan about what we want to do and how we are going to achieve these wants. But how do we stick to our goals?


Sometimes, we start strong and blow everything out of the park until we feel burnt out. This may cause us to lose that first spark of motivation to continue to complete a goal. That initial flicker of desire dwindling to mere smoke. Or maybe we can’t find that spark and have trouble starting at all.

How do we get started? How do we ignite motivation and keep feeding the fire to sustain our progressive energy?




First things first, if you haven’t started the goal, then you need to just start. Start anywhere. Sit down or get up depending on what you are doing and just start. If you are trying to live a more organized life: get up and start cleaning or tidying anything. If you want to write, sit down and write anything, let your mind wander for a bit. Just start something.


When I feel stuck, just getting up and doing something helps. I hide my phone, close my laptop, turn on some music and I just do something. Sometimes it doesn’t even relate to a goal. I just get up and start cleaning, and then I feel refreshed and ready to work. That is what works for me anyway.


Make it a habit


So what if you already started your goals? How to we keep at it?


The best thing to do when it comes to achieving a goal is to integrate it into your routine, make it a habit. If you want to exercise, start by stretching in the morning or before bed. If you want to read more, set some time aside each night to read for an hour before bed. Soon enough, this will become a part of your routine and you will feel like you want to do it, and it will be getting done because you are chipping away at it every day.


Don’t wear yourself down

Another important thing to remember is to not wear yourself out. If you are trying to write, you can have the goal of writing 500 words a day, but don’t beat yourself up if you can only get out 100. Or even a sentence. Life happens and sometimes we need time to recharge. We cannot do our best work if we are run down and tired.


We won’t enjoy our work if we are falling asleep while doing it or resent it because we are just too exhausted. Take steps towards your goal, and keep working on it, but make sure you are being healthy about it.


Achieving your goals should not feel like a chore all the time. You should feel satisfied, relieved, happy – basically any positive emotion when completing the steps or the goal itself. If it begins to feel negative in any way, reevaluate the steps you are taking and reconsider your goal. If it is something you really want to accomplish, remind yourself of the outcome.
