Most of us have goals that we really want to achieve in our personal and work lives. There are times when you can’t get started. Or maybe you’ve started working towards a goal but keep getting sidetracked and lose momentum. If so, you’re not the only one. Many of us struggle with procrastination and sticking to a plan to complete the task.
One way to help you overcome these challenges is to set up reminders. Reminders do help you stay focused on your goals and tasks so it is more likely that you’ll actually take the steps necessary to achieve them.
There are a few different ways to set up reminders.
• A reminder app on your smartphone. Apple and Android phones come with a default app.
• To-do list app. Some popular ones are Todoist, Any.do, and Remember The Milk.
• A sticky note on your desk or fridge! This is a tried and tested method to keep that reminder in your face. It pesters you until you finish it, or throw out the note.
All reminders, however, are not created equal. Set reminders that are tailored to meet your needs and preferences.
