As we start a new month, I thought I would look back and reflect. I have always been consistent with making list of goals that I wanted to achieve in the last couple of years. However, this year, I am not making the same list.
I am conscious and aware of the things I want to achieve, and even though I know that it makes perfect sense to jot them down, I have decided that I will do without the list. Instead, I will focus on writing down the things that I have achieved each month. Each of them will be noted down, under a few categories that I chose to create my achievements 2020 document.
In my opinion, a list of goals focuses more on the things that need to be done in a specific time. And may lead to feeling overwhelmed. It can cause anxiety if the list is long, and can, therefore, affect my productivity. At the end of each month, I will reflect on the things that I have accomplished, and the changes that need to be made. I feel that I have room to celebrate my small accomplishments much more, which brings this powerful emotion that boosts my motivation and spirits, rather than stressing on the things that I did not do or achieve. I am adding this habit into my routine, as it will give a clear overview of my accomplishment and personal attributes that may drive me to achieve even better things.
What are your thoughts about a list of goals and achieved list? I would love to hear your opinion in the comment section below.
