Post-COVID situations turned our lives into a different path. Our life is no longer the same like it was before the Covid striking. We get economically thrashed after the lockdown rolled out.
“I want to make more money”, “I have to earn a lot better”, “I have to become debt-free”, “I have to spend money more wisely” these are few terms which are playing in our mind from dawn to dusk. These could be your goal too for this year, but that doesn’t mean these are the only effective ones.
Perhaps, like all other years, you just make few goals but not ended fruitfully at the end of the year. We thought that we might get a chance to release ourselves from the Covid pandemic but we can’t. So you have to strive for these ways to set some money goals appropriately especially for this year 2021.
Focus on your habits, focus on the outcomes later
Keep focusing on your habits and the works you need to do this year. This year is different than the previous ones. The market has changed drastically and will not become similar again, the business has changed, way of approach has been changed and will not going to be same as before. You have to understand this very quickly and thus have to set your focus on the prime factors of money-making.
Don’t look at the outcomes. As it will take time to get a nice outcome from your efforts. Every work will you do, will give you a return but will more time than your anticipation. This year, your efforts will take time to shine. The market needs time to re-settle. Thus focus on your money-making goals, not on the outcomes very quickly. Keep patience in your work. If you do the works, if you follow your regular habits then at the end you’ll definitely be getting to see the outcomes.
Just keeping strong willpower will not going to help you. Many of us think that if our willpower is high then we can achieve whatever we want. No, only willpower alone will not be going to give you anything. Rather keep your trust in the system. The world is now relying on digital systems and in online mode much more than it was before COVID striking. So you too have to keep your trust in the system.
Start focusing on your gaps that need to cover to cope up with these systems. Start implementing all those procedures. Without cordial efforts, nothing going to happen this year. It may take time to get results from this system but mark my word you will get benefit if you follow the basic instincts perfectly.
Stay committed don’t try to be overwhelmed
The urge of becoming perfect can lead us to overwhelm ourselves. That is the start of our degradation. Just stay committed to the path. Stay focused, stay honest, and rely on the system. Try to adopt what are missing things for you. You will get a lot of time this year. Business is facing a hard time recovering. Everyone needs time, everything needs time then why don’t you give yourself the time?
Make plenary charts; chalk out the Dos and Don’ts serially. Make yourself comfortable using digital online systems. Then implement a new strategy. Try to finish a task more intelligently rather than giving too much effort to finish that task. If you work smartly then it will surely take lesser time to complete. So it will reduce your chances to overwhelm yourself.
Another mistake which we do in every year that we don’t update our goals regarding the current situation we are going through. So keep your goals flexible. Don’t create goals in the beginning and keep them rigid all along for the whole year. Rather than think of them as flexible ones. You can update your goals on a quarterly basis. That will be perfect I guess.
If your past goals are not relevant then don’t run behind those to achieve them this year. Forget about those and create new goals, start freshly. For example, if you are planning for a year-end vacation trip that was not initiated in the previous year, then try to create another one for this year and start to save your money from the beginning.
Problems may come and go but we need to move on. That is life. Change is the ultimate constant thus you also need to make yourself flexible with the present situation. To get a clearer view of your workings make a budgetary plan at the beginning of the month and make another checking plan at the end of that month. Now compare between your expected budget and actual expenditures. This will give you the chance to create a much better plan for the next month. Repeat these steps and after some months you will see a benefit in your financial goals.
Remember this mantra:with the proper commitment towards the working system you can achieve financial heights by proper habit implementations.
