How women can achieve their goals
Step One – Focus
Rushing about spending time on lots of things which really aren’t important can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Focusing on the task at hand or the item which is your top priority at that given moment is more productive.
Avoid the temptation to fill your day focusing on things others achieve quicker, the promotions you are missing out on or your ambition to be better than somebody else within your field.
Focus on your present, focus on being successful right now!
Avoid negative thoughts such as ‘it didn’t work last time; it’s not going to work again’ every day is a new opportunity to improve and achieve and you should never let self-doubt get in your way.
Step Two – Block out noise
Meetings, memos, new rules and regulations, team briefings are all 'noise' they don't require your immediate attention. Take note of everything but clear it from your mind so you don’t get swamped by all the finer details.
Don’t be distracted by anything which doesn’t need an immediate response. If you do, it may stop your productivity and you run the risk of under achieving.
Step Three – Only worry about things you can control
Get things done by only focusing on what you can control. The best person you can control is yourself, so focus on your own ability, focus on your own success and focus on your own positive attributes.
Likewise, keep a positive mindset and focus on the obstacles you can overcome rather than the ones you cannot overturn or get around.
If you struggle with control you are often more likely to succeed if you follow a routine.
Creating a routine can take away pressures, particularly relating to time, as it helps you to determine what you can get done in a certain time and it also aids in streamlining processes so that you can get things done quicker.
Analysing what you wish you could change is just a distraction so avoid obsessing over anything trivial or unnecessary and don’t get distracted by the silly things which are never going to matter in the long run anyway.
Step Four – Manage your time
All the work you produce can be planned, applied and implemented better with effective time management.
Manage yourself and your workload in relation to the time assigned to do the job. You cannot stop time or create extra time, but you can manage what is achievable in any given hour, day, week, month or year.
The focus of time management is the ability to work effectively and with purpose. Time management is not only a skill to get more done, it is also a form of self-improvement which you can carry through to your life outside of the office.
