Creating goals and visions
Of course, everyone daydreams from time to time about winning the lottery or implementing a new business idea that is guaranteed to make you rich. You talk endlessly to anyone who can offer an ear and tell you to ‘go for it because you only live once’. A select few of those listeners will take it upon themselves to help make your dreams a reality through endless research. One hundred podcasts later, a pile of full A4 notepads and you still never manage to execute your impressive plans.
To make your plans a success, you need to establish your goal and draw up a plan of how exactly you are going to achieve it, whilst still being realistic. A plan doesn’t necessarily have to be an award-winning novel, it could even be scrawled on the back of an old newspaper. The point I am trying to make is that the process of writing things down makes everything seem real. Referring to your written-down plan can help to tailor your thoughts and allow you to set a clear focus going into the future. Writing will help to ensure you are dedicated to your overall vision and help to keep you committed.
Start Small and Go Upwards
You have a goal in mind, but you are getting ahead of yourself as you are trying to bite off more than you can chew. We have all been there. Take what you want to achieve, and break it down in to smaller, more achievable chunks. This way they will be easier to accomplish, and you are less likely to procrastinate due to being scared of the enormous number of steps that are required before you complete your aim.
Devise a structure and methodically chip away at it; this way you will start to see a steady progress. Set yourself some time frames in which you will dedicate to that specific activity. For example, you may set aside one hour each day if you are looking for a new job in 2019. Monday you may spend adding extras to your CV to make it just perfect. Tuesday’s hour could be spent tweaking your LinkedIn profile and Wednesday could be used to search for relevant job positions and so on.
Consider your financial future
Leave your financial woes in 2018, they are so last year! You need to think about what is important to you this year and how to make your future flourish. Start with thinking about what you would like to achieve financially. How are you going to achieve this?
Financial planning isn’t something that comes naturally to everyone. According to the Institute of Financial Planning, 38% of people worry about money most of the time, and yet only 4% of them have revealed that they had a financial plan in place. You can earn a second income in numerous ways but one of the most popular is through property. Property located in investment hotspots throughout the UK can provide you with steady returns. RW Invest, property investment specialists based in Liverpool, offer state of the art developments across cities like Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds which are guaranteed to improve your earning year on year.
