One Goal At a Time

Welcome to Above Yourself, a blog about self-improvement and faith. If you're new here, you may want to subscribe in a reader or subscribe by email. Many of the topics here are related to my faith in Jesus Christ and Mormonism, but all are welcome to share their own beliefs. Thanks for visiting!

As summer approaches, it means that we’re about as far away as we can get from the New Year, and about as far away as we can get from thinking about our New Year’s Resolutions. That’s okay, though, because it means that we can stop feeling guilty about goals that we haven’t accomplished yet and actually get them done. Zen Habits has a great post on taking goals one step at a time called “The Amazing Power of One“. It’s pretty simple, but it’s very similar to the goals-setting that I’ve been doing myself.

In a nutshell, you list all your goals and pick the most important one to work on and do it until it becomes automatic. As part of your reminder process, you set up a new reminder for the next time you need to do it. Give it a try!
