Create actionable goals
If you have a deadline coming up and the only task on your to-do list is “finish project,” you’re setting yourself up for disappointment.
When you approach big, complicated tasks without breaking them into bite-sized pieces, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed.
Spend 15-minute writing down every single individual task that needs to be completed for the project to be finished, no matter how small. You’ll be able to approach each of these small, achievable tasks with increased focus.
