Now you can break your goal down further into smaller achievable pieces.
a) 6 Month Goals: What do I need to do in the next 6 months to achieve my 1, 3, 5 and 10 year goals?
b) 3 Month Goals: What do I need to do in the next 3 months to achieve my 6 month goals?
c) 1 Month Goals: What do I need to do in the next month to achieve my 3 month goals?
d) 1 Fortnight Goals: What do I need to do in the next fortnight to achieve my 1 month goals?
e) 1 Week Goals: What do I need to do in the next week to achieve my fortnightly goals?
f) 1 Day Goals: What do I need to do today to achieve my weekly goals?
You can incorporate your goals into your everyday life by looking at your daily plans at the start of each day, looking at your weekly plans at the start of each week, etc. This way you’ll consciously be thinking of your plans and have them at the front of your mind.
