On Your Mark: Setting & Keeping Goals in 2014

January 23, 2014 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

We all set goals for ourselves that are, often, not met. At the Parrish Law Firm, we know how important it is for each of us to accomplish the goals we set for ourselves, and we want to help you keep moving toward yours.

One of the hardest things about reaching your goals is getting started. It’s always easy to tell yourself “I can do this tomorrow.” When you decide on a goal, think of what you can do today to get one step closer to your personal finish line. Even if it is something small like putting together a plan, it’s easier to keep going once you get started.

A lot of people have trouble accomplishing goals because they don’t have the determination to keep going. An easy way to give yourself the motivation to reach your target is to set a deadline and give yourself constant reminders why this objective is important. A reasonable timeline to do something gives us more drive to keep going. Small milestones along the way can keep you motivated to reach the next checkpoint.

The biggest thing that stops us from reaching a goal is the tendency to give up with any obstacle. Any set back, no matter how small, can break your drive and cause you to give up. Don’t let a mistake stop you. Instead, use each mistake as a learning point, and use it to push you further. Each time you start to give up, remind yourself why you set this goal and push further.

At Parrish Law Firm, our goal is simple: to help you recover and receive just payment for harm caused by others. We know how easy it is for something to get in the way and stop you from getting to your goals, and we want to help you get back on track.
