How To Use Goals During Challenging Times

During challenging times you need to take special care of yourself. Do small things that get results! Here’s how to use goals during challenging times.

Get started right now!

Set one extremely teeny tiny small goal. Let it be something relevant to your life.

Let’s say your challenge is related to you being overstressed.

What can you do? You might do something fun such as setting a goal of eating a piece of dark chocolate after going for a short walk today. Or set a goal to climb into bed to rest for 20 minutes.

Let’s say your challenge is related to producing some work output.

What might make that challenge more fun for you? Perhaps there’s part of it that you can do with another person. Maybe you’ve never done it that way before, yet it might be more productive and fun for both of you.

Pick something you can do right away.

Choose something real. Relevant to your life! And make it a very short term goal.

If at all possible, make it be something you can do start to finish today.

Setting goals and following through helps you learn to get results.

It gives you vital practice.

It changes your attitude about goals.

I challenge you to get practice this week.

Today if possible! Set the smallest goal you can come up with that’s relevant to your life. Then get to the doing of it.

Repeat with another aspect of your challenging times that might lighten you and your life a bit.

Pick another eensy-weensy teeny-tiny perhaps-even-silly-so-small goal tomorrow. Then really do what you need to do to get results. You’ll start a pattern of goal setting and results that will lift you up and make you feel better about yourself.

Challenge yourself to a truly little goal-setting session today!

You’ll feel better about yourself by setting a small goal and achieving it. Repeat! Develop a pattern. I dare to say a new habit will form. That’s how to use goals during challenging times.

    • Thanks for welcoming me, Jim! Learning to walk again after surgeries takes all the persistence of a child learning to walk. Blessings to you as you dig deep for the child within who has done this before. Having done so repeatedly, I recognize your moving-to-walking-again game of inches as a worthwhile challenge.

      blessings,
      Cynthia
