We all want to succeed. Whether it’s in losing weight, learning the guitar, speed reading, or starting our own business. For those of us who have tried and failed, success seemselusive. Why is it one person succeeds where another person fails? First and foremost, I believe it is in their mindset. But secondly, I believe that successful people have developed certain habits, either naturally or through research, that the rest of us haven’t stumbled upon yet. I’ve made a list of some habits to help you set goals and achieve them.

我们每个人都想成功。有人想成功地减肥、学吉他,也有人想学会快速阅读或开始创业。对于那些曾经尝试过但却以失败告终的人们而言,成功看起来难以捉摸。为什么有人成功而有人失败呢?首先,我认为这与人们的心态有关。其次,我相信成功的人士养成了一些习惯,这些习惯可能是他们天生就具有的,也可能是后天养成的,但却是我们其他人不具有的好习惯。我把一些好习惯列出了一张清单,希望可以帮助正在阅读这篇文章的你设定并实现目标。

1. Identify your core values   确定自己的核心价值观

What is important to you? Finding your core values may seem a bit off-topic when it comes to success, but creating goals that are in line with your values is key to creatingintrinsicmotivation. Sit and reflect on what you value most. Pick a handful of things and actually write them down. Remind yourself of your values every day, and reflect on whether you are honoring those values through your work.

什么对你来说是重要的?找出你的核心价值观,这看上去可能和成功没什么关系,但是建立和你价值观一致的目标是建立内在激励体系的关键。想一想你最看重的是什么,找出它们并记下来。每天都要提醒一下自己的价值观,并想一想自己有没有通过工作履行这些价值观。

2. Pick a goal (Focus)   选择一个目标(并专注于此)

Choose one goal to start. Something large enough that will give you a sense of accomplishment, while aligning well with your core values. Focus is key here. The more focused you are on one goal, the higher chance you have of success. If you spread yourself too thin, you might never complete your projects because they will take far too long. Believe me, multitasking isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

选择一个目标开始行动。这个目标要足够大,能让你有一种成就感,并和你的核心价值观一致。关键是要集中注意力。对一个目标的关注越多,你成功的可能性就越大。如果你同时做很多事情,可能什么也做不好,你可能永远也不会完成计划,因为需要花费的时间太多。相信我,多任务并不像想象中的那么好。

3. Set a deadline for success   为成功设定期限

Set a date for success. Identify when your hope to achieve your goal. Keep it realistic, while not giving yourself too much time. By setting a time limit, you are making the process more real.

为成功设定一个日期,确定自己希望何时达成目标。设定时要切合实际,但也不要给自己太多时间。设定时间期限可以使成功的梦想更容易成为现实。

4. Build the rightmindset  树立正确的心态

Believe fully in your ability to achieve your goal. Visualize yourself having completed your goal in the exact time-frame you have chosen, although finishing early is also acceptable. You don’t need to consider the failures that will happen along the way. Success is inevitable. Others may think you will fail, don’t let yourself be one of them! (If you have trouble visualizing success, perhaps a fear of success is limiting you.)

相信自己有能力实现自己的目标。想象自己恰好在规定的时间内完成了目标——虽然提早完成目标也可以。你不必去想一路上可能会遇到哪些失败。你要认为自己一定会成功。其他人可能认为你会失败,但是你自己不要这么认为!(如果你很难想象自己会成功,也许正是因为你害怕成功。)

5. Consequences for missing your deadline   设定错过最后期限的结果

Set up negative consequences for missing thedeadline. Necessity is the mother of all invention. If you can manage to keep yourself intrinsically motivated, that’s great. If not, this will help kick you into gear and keep your eye on the prize.

设定错过期限的不利后果。需要是发明之母。如果你能自我激励,这很好。如果你不能,这种方法会帮助激励你,并让你进入工作状态,把注意力集中在如何能够成功上。

6. Weekly and Daily Goals (Plan)   设定每周和每天的具体目标(计划)

Break down goals by week and by day, setting up a plan to reach your overall objective. Keep the number of tasks per day as low as you can, and focus on completing only your planned tasks for each day. If you find yourself done, pick the next thing from your weekly list. Do the hardest things during your peak energy level, which usually means doing them first!

把目标按周和日进行具体化分解,设定计划来实现总体目标。尽可能把每天的任务数量设得低一点儿,把注意力集中在你所计划的任务上。如果你发现自己完成了任务,从每周任务列表里再选一个目标。在你状态最佳时完成最难的任务,这通常意味着最先去完成它们。
