Break your goals into smaller ones

smart-crm-8-steps-720x654Dreaming big is usually done after getting a moment of inspiration from a hard-to-believe type of story that you hear, but this type of inspiration is lost after a few hours, or after a few days in the best case.

Rethink the areas that you are focusing the most by doing this little exercise

focusA few types of questions might not be perceived pleasantly from someone, because they might not be of the types that would fit to their current model of perceiving the world.

Your emotions determine your actions

Emotion ActionTwo days ago, one of my tooth was hurting and the dentist was not at the medical ordinance. I was trying to be patient and focus on other things around me just to fade the attention to the pain that I was having, but I suddenly came to realize that a few negative thoughts were popping in my head. While I was sitting next to my family, they were watching TV and not paying attention to me.
