how to 优先 目标s

How many 目标s are you chasing right now?

那里’你很有可能’ve got too many. It’s a classic 生产力错误 –和一个可以理解的。我们都想实现最好的我们’有能力,专家建议我们设定挑战性甚至“audacious” 目标s.

The problem is, having ten simultaneous 目标s is worse than having none at all. You’最终可能会变得疲惫不堪和沮丧’ll feel that you’永远不要取得足够的进步。

The cure is simple: cut down your list of 目标s to something much more manageable. But if you’re a bit of a 目标-setting junkie, how do you even begin?

步骤1:写下所有目标

Record all the major 目标s that you’我目前正在旅途中,或者’重新希望开始。您可能需要将此列表分为“personal” 和 “professional” categories.

It’取决于您,什么才算是“goal”. I’d说它应该​​相当大(如果您可以在一天内完成,’s not really a 目标) 和 that it should go beyond your regular daily routine (“go to work” 和 “pay bills” don’t count).

Here are some common 目标s to help you think through yours:

Take enough time to do this properly: you may find that you have unfinished 目标s nagging at you from months or even years ago.

步骤2:选择一种好的优先级排序方法

当您查看清单时,您是否会感到胃下沉?如果是这样,你’ve definitely got too many 目标s. It’是时候减少并专注于一件事情了。

为此,您需要知道如何’re going to 优先 your list. 那里 are several methods you could choose:

Most important 目标 first. 这样的好处是可以让您解决真正值得的事情(也许甚至可以改变生活)–但也可能会有些令人生畏,特别是如果您’在跟进方面并不总是很擅长。

Smallest 目标 first. 这可以像“snowball” effect when paying off debt – a small win at the start motivates you to go on to bigger 和 greater things. The drawback to tackling small 目标s, though, is that you might never get round to the big ones.

Big impact 目标 first. 这不是’不一定是最重要的目标,但是它’会对您的生活产生直接而重大的影响。如果你不这样做’能量很大,你’如果不适合,定期锻炼可能是一个很大的影响力目标,可以使您有能力帮助他人-例如职业变更或新任资格。

It’完全取决于您如何选择优先级,并且您可能需要考虑以上三个因素。一个伟大的第一个目标是’重要且具有实际影响,但这不是’太大。您希望在几周或几个月内,而不是几年内看到结果。

步骤#3:写下您的首要目标

Using the method(s) you chose in Step #2, figure out your top 目标. If you’重新挣扎,问自己:

If I could only achieve ONE thing from my 目标s list over the next few months, which thing would I choose?

Write down this 目标 和 commit to it. This is your primary 目标: you can work on others too if you want (see the next step) – but this 目标 needs to come first.

您可能希望为此目标设定一个期限’s smallish. If it’一个大目标,设定里程碑和日期。例如,如果您想获得新的资格,则可以为自己设置在特定日期申请特定课程的任务。

步骤4 :(可选)选择其他一个或两个目标

writing 目标s

You may want to pick a couple of other 目标s to pursue, using the same method of prioritization. (Ask yourself, 如果我能再做一件事… 等等。)

If you can, make these 目标s complementary to your top one. For instance, if your main 目标 is to lose weight, a second 目标 of “exercise regularly” would work well.

Avoid having three big 目标s that all take up a lot of time, energy or money. If you want to learn the guitar 学驾车 晚上上课,你’很可能难以同时管理这三个方面。
