3 tips to stay focused on your goal planning throughout the day

Each day presents a new opportunity to set goals and focus on what it will take to achieve them. There are various factors throughout the day that can block you from achieving these goals, or even re-route you in a totally different direction than where you were headed. Let's take a look at how you can stay focused and on track with the following tips.

1. MORNING ROUTINE: Set time aside each morning to focus on your daily goals

It’s important to start off your morning writing down your goal(s) for that specific day, along with the steps you will take to achieve the end result. One way to do this is by using a productivity planner. A productivity planner will help take your “to do” list to the next level! When you are able to visually see what you want to accomplish, it makes it much easier to take action steps toward making it happen. The best thing about goal planners is that you are able to find the perfect one that matches your personality. From the minimalist who likes more of a calendar look to those who love to colour coordinate their goals, there’s a goal planner out there that can match whatever you’re looking for.

2. AFTERNOON SNACK TIME: Set a window of time in the afternoon to take note of what you have achieved for the day

Lunchtime doesn’t need to just be used for eating that peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Take this time to also check off the things you have accomplished for the day, so far. Once you do that, focus on the things you still need to complete. Keeping a list is encouraging because as you physically cross off something that you have finished, it encourages you to keep going. As you conquer each goal one-by-one, the feeling of achievement will boost your spirit.

3. EVENING WIND DOWN: Focus on your accomplishments for the day

It’s the end of the day and time to prepare for tomorrow. However, before you do, take the time to give thanks for what you were able to accomplish for the day. Write down positive highlights of your day. As with setting your goals, writing down what you are grateful for will help you visualise the positivity going on in your life. It will also help take the focus off the negative things. Either journaling or keeping a gratitude journal will help lift your spirits and also help you see your goals in a more optimistic light.
