Throughout the month of November, I have been sharing the steps that you need to take to set yourself up for success and reach your goals! Once you've have a set of goals in mind, drafted a plan, can manage your time efficiently and identified your areas of improvements, now it's time to set your routine and master the disciplines.
What are the disciplines you can get into the practice of doing, that will allow you to succeed in reaching your goals regardless of the rates or market conditions? Set disciplines that will become a part of your routine and daily habits and stick with it. Write them down.
These can be things such as:
Make It a Habit
We as humans are creatures of habit and because of this, it's important that you make “to do” lists regularly for them to be effective. Creating “to do” lists should become a habit for you. They should become second nature; you should not need to think about them. The best way to accomplish this is by creating your “to do” list at the same time each day. If you are an early riser, you may want to create your list first thing in the morning. On the other hand, many people prefer creating their lists at the end of the day so that it is ready in the morning.
Each time you create a new “to do” list, you should transfer any unfinished tasks from your current list to the list for the next day. That way you're keeping track of of what has and hasn't been done. If you create your list at the same time each day, it will become a habit over time. Once creating the list becomes a habit, it will become faster and easier to revise your “to do” list every day.
