Simple Tips for Accomplishing your Goals (from DumbLittleMan blog)

I stumbled across this awesome list while I was procrastinating at work. I thought it would be good to put it here so that I can keep myself motivated throughout my pursuits. Please keep in mind that for the purpose of simplicity I have condensed the author's original points.
However you can see original post here: http://www.dumblittleman.com/2011/10/7-tips-for-accomplishing-your-goals-in.html.

Tip 1: Bite Off Less Than You Can Chew
Most people never take action or stop half way to the goal line because they bite off more than they can chew. Eventually the goal they have in mind goes from being the pursuit of a dream to a daily chore. By starting with bite sized pieces, our view of how much progress we’ve made shifts dramatically.

Tip 2: Take Action Daily
The only way to get any sort of result is to take action towards a goal. By taking action every single day you create momentum. As momentum increases, the results taken from your action will become much more substantial.

Tip 3: Celebrate Small Victories
Don't get so caught up in getting to where you want to go that you forget to enjoy the journey and celebrate the small victories along the way.

Tip 4: Learn from Setbacks
Setbacks are usually opportunity in disguise and we have to remember that sometimes we’ll take 2 steps back in order take 20 steps forward.

Tip 5: Keep Charging Forward
It would be a shame to make so much progress towards a goal and abandon the pursuit in your final hours. Often, accomplishment occurs on the final hours of a goal.

Tip 6: Take a Break
It’s important to make a point daily to take a break from everything and do something without any purpose other than for the enjoyment of whatever you’re doing.

Tip 7: Detach from the Outcome
Consider the actions you take the seeds that you plant in order for your goal to come to fruition. If you pull those seeds out of the ground to check on the progress of their growth you’re essentially starting the process all over again. So, let nature take its course and stay detached from the outcome.

BOLD WORTHY: Treat your goals as part of the game of life and don’t take everything so seriously. If you do that you’ll find yourself not only enjoying the process but making much more progress.
