If you want to design your own life style by yourself. You have to make it more into an action. The best way to do it is to make your own bucket list.
It could be anything no matter big or small goals. If you just start to have your own bucket list. I recommend you to make 10 things that you think you could achieve in a week such as ,
- I will to cook green curry.
-I will make 10 basketball shot in a row.
- I will run 10 rounds nonstop.
Then check it every week! Cross all the list that you make them and write the reason on goals that you could not make it.
Example of my small goals of bucket list. ( Check it every week )
- Go to gym and work out on Monday , Wednesday , Friday , and Sunday.
- Play basketball on the day I have not been to gym. Go to gym instead if it is rain.
-Meet new people in meetup.com.
- Write one article per day.
: Failed , I have not done it on Saturday and Sunday.
- Organize free style cooking group.
: Progress , I will meet and talked to some people who are interesting in it and they might help.
- Find more people to help me write a restaurant review article.
The secret of short term goals are that you have to make it clear into action(e.g. I will run 30 minutes nonstop is better than I will lose weight) and it is the thing that you think could do it within a week. But you just delay it if it is not on your bucket list.
Good thing about small goals is that it make you familiar with achieving something. Then you will have more faith in yourself. This is the most important part of life. REMEMBER!
If you want to achieve something big. First you must have faith in yourself.
Let’s keep doing this over and over. Trust me it would give you strength and power. Then you could do whatever you want.
After you check your small goals every week. Now let’s make some bigger goals and put it in your bucket list. These things you could achieve it within three to six months. So let’s check this every three months and see some progress. These list would give you more confidence. Then your big dream would be something that you really believe that you could make it happened!
Example of my medium goals of bucket list. ( Check it every three months )
