These tools or tips are called ‘Sense Of Direction To Success’.
The following are the seven (7) points the sense of direction to success.
1- Decide what you want in each area of your life.
Decision making is an essential tool to achieve success. Whoever fails to make the right decision at the right time will surely be in darkness or on confusion road. Be confident enough to decide what you want for your life in each area of life be it financial, physical, economic, spiritual, intellectual, emotional or relational aspect. This is your life, not somebody else life.
2- CREATE A TO-DO LIST FOR YOUR GOALS
Writing down of your goals on a paper is essential to achieve success in all endeavours. Be specific as what you want to achieve in life. Writing down your goals put you on your toes to what to do at the right time.
3- SET A REASONABLE DEADLINE FOR YOUR GOALS.
Setting a time-bound for each goal is very essential. Without a reasonable time to achieve each goal you want to achieve you tend to take less cognizance of their precious time. A time-bound limit or deadline makes you value all seconds of your life. Time is precious, do the right thing at the right time.
4- CREATE YOUR STRATEGIC PLAN
Without a plan, nothing seems fruitful or successful. Planning ahead of any task makes it easier and simpler to achieve a target goal. It is very important to create a strategic plan for your goals in life.
5- BUILD YOUR PLAN OF ACTION
Having a strategic plan is not only enough but also need the building of plan of action by prioritizing your actions and putting the chronological order to your strategic plan.
6- TAKE ACTIONS ON YOUR PLANS IMMEDIATELY
An action is worth twice a spoken word. Do the right thing when you have all your plans being put in place. Don’t make excuses, just make sure you keep the ball rolling. An awesome and perfect plan without an action to pursue the goals is just a worthless plan. Your thoughts and wishes alone cannot guarantee you that success you are dreaming of.
7- MAINTAIN YOUR FOCUS
The focus is the sense of directions that determines how far and how well a goal will be achieved. Maintaining a focus on your plans by doing something every day. Doing at least a single task every day as scheduled in your plans makes you a bit closer to achieve the goals.
