It’s normal-we all lose sight of our goals en route, because life is complicated & often gets in the way. Our tricks for staying on track? For one, hold yourself accountable. No need to beat yourself up, but do pick yourself up, if you’ve lapsed or lost interest. Remind yourself why you wanted to chase this goal. Reconnect with what you felt when you first got inspired. Second, by checking in with your plan & its’ progress, you’ll probably see that you have indeed gotten results, however small. You’ll also have a chance to tweak your plan & add or delete things that might work-or not. Third, by all means, share your goals with your entourage. Not only will you pick up a few cheerleaders, but there will surely be people who are motivated to join you. Group participation works, whether it’s a professional organization, an online forum, or a community-based activity. It’s always easier to walk uphill in good company, & you can share ideas along the way that might help everyone!
