Time bound_ has a starting date and an ETA _ You should aim to achieve the various stages of your goal according to a preconceived timescale. Unless you build these parameters into your goals you could end up paralysed by procrastination and end up more frustrated and un_focused than before you started. Set a precise goal, putting in dates, times and amounts so that you can measure your achievement. If you do this, you will know exactly when you have achieved the goal and celebrate your accomplishment, and can take complete satisfaction from having achieved it. Formulate short, medium and long_term goals.
Motivate Yourself to be Disciplined _ \"Desire is the key to motivation, but it\'s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal _ a commitment to excellence _ that will enable you to attain the success you seek.\" _ Mario Andretti Think of reasons to accomplish your goal rather than excuses not to do them. As you do the tasks that you hate but bring you closer to your goal you will feel more satisfaction, accomplishment, and peace in your life. It will be difficult at times to keep pushing forward, especially if you do not see results immediately; keep going anyway. A great way to do this is to remind yourself of why you want to accomplish your goal and to always keep the end in mind. Accountability. \"When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of improvement accelerates.\" _ Thomas S. Monson. This is why participating in a mastermind group can be so beneficial; it gives us someone to report to who will not only encourage our progress, but hold us accountable for what remains to be done on achieving our goals and related indicators. Remember, the more accountability, the greater the results.
