Motivation

For me it’s very important to be surrounded by things that inspire and motivate me. Recently I have found that I get a lot of motivation and energy from the people surrounding me, something I perhaps never realised due to not always chosing the best people to spend time with in terms of how they empowered me.

Isn’t it just amazing when you can sit down with a friend and share your life goals and encourage each other to get there even through the difficult times? For me it’s absolute gold and I am so greatful to have such inspiring people in my life.

Always surround yourself with go-getters and positive energy, especially people who currently are where you want to be in life.

After an amazingly inspirational day, it is now time for me to get some rest. Goodnight!

Manhattan Home Office Views

Hello! Today I’ve been at the gym in the morning and even managed to study for a bit which is great.. I think my dad’s home office view was quite motivational in terms of me wanting to sit down and get some work done.

I think I’m ready for a break now though, so I am going to get ready and head towards Herald Square for a little walk and some fresh air.

I’m also debating on whether to take another workout class tomorrow morning or make do with the gym next-door… I’ve really been enjoying being productive while away, I think the jetlag and waking up so early has actually beend good for me. Going to attempt to keep waking up at 6am when I’m back in London too!

Anyway, time to head out and explore the City some more!

Welcome to my new blog and the importance of goals

For years, actually close to 10 years now, I have wanted to start a blog. At times I have even attempted to and never stuck to it, but hopefully the seventh time’s a charm! I want this blog to be a platform for my creative side that I rarely get to exercise in my work or studies.

Something I would also like to focus on writing about is the importance of setting goals and how to achieve them. I like to have small daily and weekly goals, as well as bigger yearly and long-term goals.

Some examples of some short-term goals I have are:

  • Go to the gym 3 times per week
  • Put away x amount of pounds every week into an ISA
  • Write one blogpost every week
  • Do all reading for tutorials

 

Examples of long-term goals:

  • Save x amount of money for my dream car by May 2019
  • Graduate university with a 1:1
  • Be able to run 5km in 25 minutes
  • Travel to one new country this year

 

I have made yearly goal documents for 2018, 2019 and 2020 as well as lists with weekly goals (or habits) I want to enforce within myself to be able to continuously develop myself as a person. Weekly or bi-weekly I open those documents to make sure I am still keeping my goals in mind. For me it’s extremely important to be a high achiever and because of that I constantly need ways to remind me of the path I want to be on.

 

Hope you guys are in a good place in life and enjoying the new start that fall-time brings us! I will also keep you updated on the progress of my goals hehe..
