Is that the right way?

‘People often complain about lack of time, when lack of direction is the real problem’

– Zig Ziglar

You perfectly know that in order to realize those starry dreams, you need to wake up. Similarly, to make that promising start, you need to put diligent efforts and you must not stop till you reach the end of the road. But do you know how the area stretched between the start and the end is to be covered?

Most of us lie between this grey area, between the rosy start and the infinite end. We are much ahead of the start point to turn back and too far from the goal. It is right here we tend to give up. Or else, we stay there making insignificant efforts and often waiting for a miracle to make our dream come true.Β We often come across advises in those weighted words stressing unrelenting pursuit of our goals, which sadly are forgotten as soon we read them or sometimes the inspiration dies down after a day or two, leaving is within the middle of the puddle.

To overcome this, why not start planning for each day and examine the results at the end of each night?

How about making best use of the time we spend in useless regret?

One thing which can make you stop and think in this regard is how some trifling fifteen minutes everyday can equal to one work day!

So according to me, any direction would become right if we make efforts at the right places and work smartly.Most importantly, unless you have that ardent inner desire to make your dream come true, you would never wake up.

For those who would like to break the long siesta, I would like to share an image with Β some great tips to manage time, which if adopted could make everything else fall in line and hasten our steps towards our aim. Wish youΒ a fruitful reading!

    Absolutely on the mark Hargun.. Creating barriers of entry is something that is just as essential as all the others as it helps to focus.

    A point well made, dear one.
    As they say, “Time is everything, and so is the timing”.
    I loved how you talked about daily inspection of the efforts you put each day. That is what I do each night.
    Also I’d like to add that you need inspiration, the kind that doesn’t die down. And that’s how you’ll wake up to the realisation of your dreams.

    This was a thoughtful post. Good Work πŸ˜€

      Yes, couldn’t agree more. And such motivation could only come when we internally motivated i.e. a strong inner desire to achieve something.
      Moreover,I love the fact how you monitor your daily progress. Keep it up!
      I’m really glad you agree with the point I made in the post. Thanks for an insightful comment πŸ™‚

      Yes, planning is indeed very important, as crucial is sticking to it. We make plans and leave them midway, procrastinating.
      But just like you said, if we really want to be ‘there’, we need to follow it diligently.

      I’m glad you liked the quote and the thoughts i wanted to convey.Thanks for your appreciation πŸ™‚
      I totally enjoyed this challenge πŸ˜€

    You are so right about the quote. Often we loose time before we realize there was lack of direction in our efforts. Well said.
