How to Improve Your Dedication and Follow-Through

Do you struggle with follow-through? 

If you want to knock out your goals and put in the time it takes to succeed, try: 

Getting Organized. 

Very few people commit information from their short-term to their long-term memory right away. No matter how smart you think you are, your brain cannot possibly remember all the important information in your life at every moment. In the interest of saving time and supporting a productive workflow, use online organizational tools to record passwords, meetings, and other vital information whenever possible. Track and update your responsibilities. Take notes of your daily progress. Planners, calendar apps, and even physical sticky notes can help you track your ideas and obligations throughout the week.

Streamlining Your Day. 

Reduce distractions during your working hours. The brain was not designed to multitask. Do not work in front of a television or in an especially loud space. Similarly, your mind can only make so many decisions in a day before it experiences a form of decision exhaustion. Set yourself up to first tackle and focus on what matters the most to you and your future, particularly during the hours when you are most productive and awake.

Streamlining Your Plan. 

How clear-cut is your plan for the next two years? In the interest of helping yourself stick to your goals, break each step into a doable, trackable size. Push yourself to take steps on a regular basis. Vague or overwhelmingly large goals often fall to the wayside; creating a realistic, trackable plan will help you follow through and succeed.

Involving Your Network. 

You don’t have to get better at follow-through alone; your peers and mentors can hold you accountable along the way. Likewise, they can advise when and how you can benefit from adjusting your habits or plan of attack.

Getting Disciplined. 

A little tough love can go a long way. If you’re having trouble staying dedicated to your goals, set deadlines for yourself. Learn when it’s time to say “no” to distracting activities and “yes” to healthier habits that will enable you to do more each day, like exercise. A little more discipline today can lead to more enjoyment and relaxation down the road!
