What do I do if I get off track?

I am the worst offender when it comes to flitting from one project to another.

I know what I want to achieve, and I know what I need to do to get there. But I am only human.

And like most humans, I get off track sometimes.

So what should you do if you are working towards achieving a goal and for some reason, things just head in another direction altogether?

The first thing is to stop beating yourself up (if that’s what you’re prone to do!) and know that these things will happen from time to time.

Remain focused on your goal, maybe sit down and write down what achieving your goal will mean to you. What do you hope to gain by achieving that goal? Why do you think you’ve drifted in another direction? Be honest with yourself.

Next, decide what your next step should be – write it down. Then make a plan to follow the next step, and the one after, and so on….

For me, it usually takes a conversation with one of my mentors, or watching or reading something inspirational that gets me back on track again, and full of enthusiasm and ideas!

Whatever works for you, just do it! You owe it to yourself to achieve your dreams!
