No. 1. ALWAYS START SMALL
To dream that a year later you will own a sports car and a two-storey house, is always nice, but the fantasies are not realized without your participation. Where better to begin planning my life with one day, writing hourly, what goals you should achieve.
It's simple and very convenient. Most importantly, when each such goal has brought you to even greater goals, even just one small step. Remember, one hour contains 60 minutes and each minute needs to be spent.
No. 2. DETERMINE WHAT YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE IN THE NEAR FUTURE
Alas, many of us often pursue certain goals and when you reach them, you know – it was not their thoughts and desires, they were imposed from outside, and therefore their achievement does not bring any pleasure. Because right here, right now stop and think, where do you see yourself in the future.
You have built a successful career? Become financially independent? Created a strong and happy family? After all, if one person dreams of becoming a CEO, the other the cabin in the woods where it is quiet and calm.
No. 3. MAKE A LIST OF TASKS THAT YOU MUST PERFORM
It is important to not just set goals, but also to determine the tasks that will lead to their achievement. First identify important areas of activity over which you should work, and then under each make a list of actions that should result.
No. 4. CREATE PLANS FOR EACH OF THE PERIODS
For five years, 10 years remaining life, and, of course, six months and a year. Each list must be accompanied by a list of tasks, the plan for the next six months should be do you have to work, and now you should perform these tasks.
As for plans for the longer term, they should be hung on the wall, preferably so that they were always in front of your eyes, and you remember what you have been working hard.
No. 5. ANALYZE THE RESULTS
Not just make a plan and complete the tasks one by one, and analyze the results. When the task is done, it should be deleted from the plan. How? Just scribble over it. Once a certain period is passed, you will be able to easily conduct analysis of the results – how many tasks you have set, how many of them were executed and which failed and why.
No. 6. DO NOT FORGET TO PUT SPECIFIC GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
“I will lose weight sometime in the future” or “I want to be slim” is not at all, no goals, and your desires. Goals are set differently – “I'll lose 10 kg in 5 months” or “I'll wear my favorite dress by next month”.
No. 7. RECORD TASKS IN A NOTEBOOK
All goals and objectives must be recorded. If you have correctly formulated the goal, mentally allocated tasks to achieve it, but forgot to write it down, consider that you didn't do anything useful. You will simply forget about that goal, and sooner than you think. Write, write and write.
All the goals just have to be on paper or in your notebook. If you don't like your handwriting, you can print the plan in Word and print it. So it will be even better, because you can hang it over your Desk, and will always remember about him.
No. 8. BE FLEXIBLE

But it takes five years, you have accumulated the money for his purpose, and ready to realize the dream, suddenly in Turkey starts a civil war. And as luck would have it in Istanbul its epicenter.

It does not matter if instead of an apartment in Istanbul you will be moving into his own house in Bulgaria, because you also love this country. Do not be afraid of change and adjustments, it's also a part of our lives. Not all of it we can provide with 100% probability.
No. 9. DON'T FORGET TO REWARD YOURSELF
Of course, you should make in your plan only those tasks that bring you closer to your goal. But this does not mean that you should not make it still a few nice “bonus”.
For example, if you always wanted to enroll in dance classes, or to visit Japan, but these tasks does not agree with your ultimate goal, you still include them in your plan. Most importantly, your entire plan consisted of not only “the list”. And indulge yourself from time to time – it is not a sin.
No. 10. RIGHT NOW!
And finally, one last tip – make a plan and start to follow it right now. You read the last line of this article and say, “Wow, what a great tips!
