Ok, no, the European City Challenge is not here yet, this great event is in May but, we have spent 31 days since New Year Eve’s. Have you achieved all your proposals? If your answer is yes, congratulations! And if your answer is no, don’t worry, you still have 11 months for achieving them. We suggest some ideas to you.
For starting, we only want to remind you of the three main questions that you have to raise again: Are your intentions specific enough? Do you have a deadline? And, are these realistic?
We insist on these questions because, for us, they are the key when you want to achieve solid intentions.
We are going to give a random example: “Doing more exercise for keeping us fit and healthy”. It is a great initiative, but is a bit generic and you can achieve it in a lot of different ways. With the first question and basing ourselves on our routines, we can develop different task. For example, going to work by bike, shopping healthier proximity products, and practicing ecotourism pedaling during this summer… easy, right?
Now, consider the next question: do you have a deadline? In this case we have task that we want to apply to our routines so, talking about time, the most important thing is getting us firm doing that during a month. We are sure that if you spend 31 days pedaling through a city like Barcelona for going to work, you will not be able to leave it.
And, finally, are they realistic? If you imagined, when you decided to do more exercise, that you could spend 2 hours in the gym everyday… Well, maybe you will achieve that, or probably, after one week you will miss too many things that you have given up for spending more time in the gym.
We hope that all these tips will help you for achieving your goals or for following them, because reaching the target, in these cases, is a big pleasure.
