Stop waiting and ask yourself, How can I complete my 10-year plan in 6 months? You may probably fail, but you will be much further along than someone who just gave up and said, “It will take ten years.”
You don’t have to do what everyone else does and play it safe. What if it only took you 90 days to reach your goals? What if you could make significant changes in your life in 90 days? You’re going to do it.
This article will discuss the five basic best ways to reach your goals in just 90 days.
1. Focus on just ONE goal
If you want to make vital changes and get excellent results in just 90 days, you can’t afford to spread your energy and focus all over the place. You must focus on just ONE goal. The key is to focus your time, energy, and effort on the one goal that will make the most significant difference in your life.
So, the first step is to ask yourself, “What is the one goal that, if I reach it, will change everything about my life?” Then, your job is to put all your attention into reaching this one goal in just 90 days.
Yes, there is only one goal, Not one or two. Think about it: one project you finish has a more significant effect on your life than ten projects you don’t quit, right? To start an online business, you don’t need ten websites or ten ideas to get started. You only need to pay attention to one. Make one website and focus on making it better and more prominent.
Writing a book is the same way. You don’t have to register five books to get started. Just work on one specific book at a time. A finished book can change people’s lives by more than five half-finished books.
So, what is the one thing you want to do to improve your life?
2. Fit your goals into the next 90 days
Next, you should try to fit your goals into 90 days. Whether the goal is for one year or three, the key is to reach it in 90 days. Yes, in 90 days. It will be challenging, but it will be fun and well worth the trouble. Instead of setting a goal to get 10,000 subscribers on YouTube in a year, try to do it in 90 days.
Instead of taking a year to write a book, do it in 90 days. One of the most common reasons people don’t reach their goals is that they give themselves too much relaxation time and flexibility for the goal.
Don’t make a goal for the year. Set a goal for 90 days. Why? Because too much can change in one year. What will happen in a year is harder to predict and plan for than what will happen in 3 months. Also, a goal that is too far away doesn’t feel as important.
Think about it: what will you do if you want to get back in shape and have a whole year to do it? You procrastinate. If you don’t reach your goal in January, you’ll tell yourself it’s okay because there are still 11 months left.
It is why 90% of the people who make New Year’s resolutions don’t keep them. Setting goals or thinking about a year is a waste of time. So, make your goal smaller and promise to reach it in 90 days.
3. Do something right away in the morning
Next, you should do many things right in the morning or as they come to you. It will be helpful if your top priority is to work on the goal as soon as you wake up.
Why? The reason is simple: Get your day off to the right start, giving yourself no excuses. Wake up. Get To Work.
As the day passes, more and more things will take your attention away. Your children will talk to you. The people you work with will call you. People you know will talk about you on social media. You need to answer some emails. You’ll be hungry and worn out, etc, etc.
One of the best-selling authors of The 5 AM Club, Robin Sharma, recommends that his readers get up at 4:30 AM to work on their most important goals.
Early in the morning, you feel good. There are no other things to do, and most people are still asleep. The best time to work hard on your most important goal is now. For me I am most productive at night, the key is to find a time when it is just you and the work, and get it done.
Do you know that incredible people like Kobe Bryant got up at 5 AM to train in the gym? The expert said that Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, got up at 3:45 every morning to go to work. And Ursula Burns, the CEO of Xerox, gets up at 5:15 to work out and answer emails.
So, get up early and start working on your masterpiece.
4. Promise to do something every day for at least 90 minutes
Successful people are willing to do things most people won’t. If you want to reach your goal, you have to decide to do something every day.
What separates successful people and people who do not have goals and dreams? It is not their lack of goals, dreams, or aspirations, but what they do. People who are successful take action.
You can not just dream about what you want, you have to be willing to take it as well.
Do something for at least 90 minutes every morning to move toward your goal. If you think you don’t have time or are too busy, understand there will always be an excuse, to lean on.
Try to get up at 5 AM every day for the next 90 days and work on your particular goal for at least 90 minutes.
If you can do this for 90 days, you will make so much progress, and your life will never be the same again.
5. Track, measure, and change course
Lastly, you need to keep track of and measure your progress, and most importantly, adapt based on your findings.
Information merely presents an opportunity for growth and evolution.
There will always be problems, and you will make mistakes, and this is all the more reason to track your progress. To best understand what is working, what is not working, what needs to be changed, and what can stay the same. This knowledge will help you create a plan, that will allow you to prosper and ultimately spend more time doing what you love.
That’s how you get to be successful. Success is made on purpose, not by chance.
These are the five basic best steps you can take to reach any goal you want in 90 days. Focusing on one goal and committing to taking a lot of action in 90 days will get you so much further than most people.
If you challenge yourself to follow the ideas in this article, you can change your life and get results in just 90 days.
