3 Best Things to Do When You Have Too Many Goals

Make the Time

Replace the phrase “have time” with “make time.” 

Saying, “I don’t have time to [work towards your goal] ” isn’t doing you any favors.  Use " I am making time to [work for your goal]".

This way, start thinking of time as being a plentiful resource and declare it to be something within your control.

Key Ideas

Look for Logical Overlaps

Cut your goal list by identifying relationships between items

Some things will complement one another, and this synergy will allow you to work toward more than one goal at a time. Some may feel like irreconcilable conflicts. 

Establish your priorities by articulating your core values and motivations.

Avoid Over-Planning

Instead of over-planning, come up with one tangible next step for each item on your dream bucket list, that will get you going in the right direction.

Being open to life's serendipity—instead of micromanaging—will make you much happier in the long run.

Goal setting gives focus

Life is designed in such a way that we look long-term and live short-term. We dream for the future and live in the present. 

Setting goals provides long-term vision in our lives.

Practical goal setting
  • Evaluate and reflect. Regularly write down where you are right now, and if you are happy with your current level of satisfaction.
  • Define your dreams and goals. What do you want? Schedule some quiet “dream time” and think about what really thrills you. Then prioritise those dreams.
  • Make your goals S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-sensitive)
  • Have accountability. Find someone to hold you accountable to your goals.
Setting work goals
  • Set goals at regular intervals and give yourself enough time.
  • When you think you might not meet a goal, take a step back to asses the situation.
  • Be transparen...
Goals should be aspirational

If you fail to meet them, you probably set difficult ones for yourself.
Goals should inspire you to stretch yourself. If you hit all of your goals every time, they might not be ambitious enough.

How To Choose Good Habits
  • Envision your ideal end result. What are you going to achieve?
  • Write it down. It will serve as a powerful motivation, especially if you include why you want it.
Good Habits For Health and Fitness
  • Regular Aerobic Exercise: Great for both your physical and mental health. Increases the production of dopamine and boosts creativity.
  • Preparing Your Own Meals. It’ll take some getting used to, but it’s a habit that’ll boost your health, wealth and productivity. 
Good Habits For Finance and Wealth
  • Create a Household Budget: the best habit to help you save money. A household budget helps to encourage frugality and discourage impulse spending. You’ll feel more motivated to engage in other good financial habits once you’ve got this in place.
  • Financial Audits. This involves frequent checks as to whether you’re spending your money as wisely as possible.
