4 ways to make the most of 2017

Do u remember how January 2017 started?….The expectations you had for the year , the plans you made !..And the goals you set to achieve .It’s almost September .​

Have you achieved any of this? Or have you lost track of time?..I for one did lose focus for a moment .I remember joining the ”finish a book a week challenge” early this year and I also remember not keeping up with this challenge .At first , I was really discouraged ,what was the use of continuing if I was barely able to keep up (work and all the side hustles had  enough of my time) . Why don’t I just give up and let it go?..Luckily , I didn’t ..I tapered the challenge to match my lifestyle , so instead of ”finishing a book a week” , i set mine to ”finishing at least two books a month” …I know !!..I know!!…It doesn’t sound as pretty as the first challenge but it’s working for me , and i’m happy .

What some people fail to understand is that it’s easy,normal and almost natural to get lost in the crowd and lose sight of one’s goals .Why won’t it?..We’re humans after all facing lots of distractions every second of our lives..Now ,the unnatural part would be not getting back on track once you discover you’ve lost it .For some ,getting back would be overwhelming and tasking ,so here I am with some tips on how to make the most of the year and still come out successful .

1). Set down goals 

You won’t know you’ve lost track of achieving  your goals if you don’t have any . You definitely can’t lose what you don’t have . Set down some goals now!!…Have it written down somewhere , and work towards actualizing them .

2). Identify your distractions 

This is a tricky part because sometimes ,we don’t even know we’re getting distracted. It’s like doing the right things at the wrong time ..In your mind ,you’re doing something good but the question is ”is it in line of what you want to achieve” ..it’s like taking a dance class when you want to be a doctor , or reading law textbooks when you want to be an engineer .Reading is not bad but it won’t help such engineer to be .Identify those distractions and cut them off.

3). Start now

Well,let’s assume you already have laid down goals which you’ve ignored in time past ,now you’ve discovered your mistake , let go of those distractions and start working towards achieving those goals now!!..There’s this adage that says ”You can never get to your destination if you keep walking on the wrong path..The distance not withstanding ” No time is late . Always remember this .​
4). Prioritize

Now you’ve cut off the distractions and made a right move ,it’s essential to prioritize . You have just 4 months till the end of 2017, work on those goals that are achievable ..This will boost your confidence and spur you into doing more ..You won’t expect a woman that is not even pregnant to start working on a ”put to bed this year goal” ..She would get nothing but frustration .Also ,learn to celebrate winnings and victories no matter how little they are .

If you diligently adhere to this 4 ways , your 2017 will end in a better note .Trust me on this .​
I hope this helps . what are your thoughts?..Are they any step to take that I missed?..Let’s hear it in the comment section . I’d also want to get feedbacks after you’ve applied these steps .
