Yes, even with ADHD, goals can help make our lives better.
I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions, but I set ten goals for 2018.
These were spiritual, health, financial, professional, recreational, and educational goals.
They are each very specific and measurable, and achievable. These three characteristics are essential for success.
But that is not enough. If I left it there, I would have just set myself up for failure and demoralization.
The next necessity is to take each goal and write down the specific steps I will need to take to reach the goal. And again, to make each separate step specific, measurable, and achievable – small steps
This is going to work.
If I can do it, you can do it. Or do you have another other plan?
PS O The Day:
I did not make a goal to do two posts a week. It would be doomed to failure in my current situation. I did not make a goal to do one post a week, although I would hope to do that. But making it a goal would be too much pressure and again, too likely to be a failure. I can hope, but I need goals that I can achieve.
