Set realistic goals
If you set goals that are too big and too unrealistic, you can lose motivation quickly. That is why it is important to set small goals, especially at the beginning.
Do you want to learn a new language? Start revising your vocabulary for 15 minutes each day. If you achieve your small goals, it will motivate you to keep going!
Most people overestimate what they can achieve in one year and underestimate what they can achieve in 10 years. Be consistent!
Make a plan
“Planning is half the battle” is a well-known proverb for a reason. Make a plan that you can stick to. Of course, this looks different depending on your intentions.
If you want to do better in your studies, you can start implementing fixed study times. Perhaps establishing a new morning routine will also help you be more productive. What is important for success is perseverance!
Instead of going to the gym by yourself, ask a friend if they want to get active together. This way you can motivate each other, do sports together and spend time with the people you love most. Achieving goals together is much more fun anyways.
Many apps can help you achieve your goals. One app that we would like to introduce to you today is the learning app “Forest – Stay focused, be present“. This app helps you to work more concentrated and also plants trees in real life!
This is how it works: After you have installed the app, you can choose any period in which you want to learn and during this time a virtual tree will be planted and starts growing – given that you are not using your smartphone! This will help you stay focused during your learning intervals without being distracted. Just try it out!
Failures are allowed!
Instead of expecting yourself to be perfect, look forward to the things you will learn in the new year. Set yourself specific goals and even if you fail at something, it is important not to give up, but to continue with a new and improved plan!
