How to gain control over things and life? Everything we purchase requires attention and care. It takes time and energy. Freeing the house from excess things, we shift the focus of attention from what we have to what we do. Minimalism is open space, simplicity and lightness! Francine Jay discusses the happiness of less in her book “The Joy of Less: A Minimalist Guide to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify”.
Contrary to what marketers would have you believe, you are not what you own. You are you and things are things. Think about how much you bought just for the sake of creating an image: bags, home furnishings, shoes, a guitar, or a fashionable fishing rod. All this in order to impress others or to indulge our “fantasy selves” – the one who’s about to lose 10 pounds, travels around the world, attends social parties, and plays in a rock band.
In addition, we identify ourselves with things from the past and carefully preserve school letters, medals of sports competitions, or lecture notes. In justification, we say that all this is evidence of our achievements. Perhaps it’s time to part with these relics forever.
Remember, the things with which we choose to surround ourselves tell our story. Let’s hope it’s not “I choose to live in the past”, or “I can’t finish the projects I start”. Instead, let’s aim for something like, “I live lightly and gracefully, with only the objects I find functional or beautiful”.
Looking at things with a critical eye, one can marvel at how many of them honor the memory of the past or embody the hope of the future.
Unfortunately, when these things are given too much space, time, and effort, they become an obstacle to life in the present. We are not what we have, we are our affairs, thoughts, and loved ones. Getting rid of the remnants of past times, unfinished business and unfulfilled fantasies, we are making room for new opportunities.
We are not what we own; we are what we do, what we think and who we love.
First of all, we worry if we do not have a specific thing. Perhaps something caught your eye in the store or in advertising, and suddenly the question arose: how could I live without this all my life? The neighbor has it, friends gifted it to your sister, a colleague bought it last week. It begins to seem that we were deprived …
Then we worry about how to get it. As soon as we get what we want, we get a new headache, because you must learn how to use it, find the right place to put it, buying extra parts of it, fix it, etc.
How many precious hours do we spend visiting dry cleaners, how many Saturdays are we ruining because of the need to change the oil or repair the car? How often do we get nervous because of a broken vase, cracked plate, or stains on the carpet?
Let’s take a break and remember how carefree and happy you felt when you were a student. And it is no coincidence that it was when we had the fewest things. Studying, living and having fun were much more important than things. And it is this state of joy that we will regain with the help of a minimalist worldview.
Imagine that you were offered a dream job, but in order to get it, you need to move across the country within three days.
Would you be filled with excitement and start making plans? Or would you look around your house and worry about how to get everything packed up in time? Won’t you be horrified by the thought that you have to transport all things for thousands of miles (or, even worse, this idea will seem to you simply ridiculous)?
What is the likelihood that in the end you decide not to bother, because you are firmly settled at home, and over time, something else may turn up?
Would your stuff have the power to hold you in place?
It seems crazy to consider – but would your stuff have the power to hold you in place? For many, the answer is likely to be yes. Things can be an obstacle to doing something new or developing new abilities. They build a prison wall around us. Having embarked on the path of minimalism, we take apart these walls and regain our freedom.
Zen Buddhism teaches that in order to be happy, we must let go of our worldly attachments. In fact, haiku port Basho famously wrote that when his house burned down, he had a better view of the moon. Now that’s someone who’s detached from his stuff!
The British poet and artist William Morris proposed the following idea: “Do not keep anything in the house that you do not consider useful or beautiful”. Great idea, but how to put it into practice?
Take an inventory. All items in the house can be divided into three categories: useful, beautiful, and emotionally rich. Useful means functional, they help in business and make life more comfortable. But in order to be useful, the item must be used. This is the trick: most of us have a lot of potentially useful things that are idle. These are duplicates or devices difficult to use. The same with things that we keep “as a last resort” or those that “may be needed”. These are the first candidates for dismissal.
Do not keep anything in the house that you do not consider useful or beautiful.
We admire beautiful things. But if a collection of Murano glass is gathering dust on a shelf or, even worse, standing packed in a pantry, then this is nothing more than colorful trash. Evaluate every item that stands in a prominent place: if a thing gives joy and gives a feeling of comfort, harmony, then its place in your house is fully justified.
Finally, a huge part of the living space is occupied by memorabilia that symbolize emotional affection: a grandmother’s service, dad’s collection of pipes, a wedding dress. They remind of significant people, places, and events. There are also gifts, family values, souvenirs.
Chat with everything that you have. Ask it:
If you stumble upon something useless, ugly, or incomprehensible throw it away.
Each candidate for purchase should be asked (mentally, of course!):
If the item does not bring anything to your life in terms of benefit or beauty, mentally hang a sign: “Sorry, there are no empty seats.” A simple initial refusal to purchase will eliminate the need to deal with tons of junk in the future!
They definitely should not be taken out of sight to the bottom of the drawers or into the depths of the cabinets – we are fighting with clutter! The solution will be simple: do not let them populate.
Keep a special drawer for things intended for kickback, somewhere away from the living space, and immediately send unwanted items there. When it is full, take it to the nearest charitable organization that you like.
Gift photos are the best solution: if it is a figurine, make a photo of it on the shelf, if it is a sweater or scarf, pose in them for a photo. Send a photo to the person who gifted it to you, and then give the item away, and everyone will be happy.
We are incredibly lucky: in the modern world, almost all the masterpieces of mankind are available without the need for their purchase and storage at home. Art, culture, and entertainment are abundant in large cities, and there is no need to try to reproduce them at home.
Coffee machines, media rooms, home fitness centers are wildly popular in the market. It seems that people decided not to leave their houses at all. Perhaps, instead of buying, servicing and repairing all this equipment, you just need to go to a cafe, cinema or gym?
If you cannot resist buying beautiful things, repeat the phrase “enjoyment without possession” as a mantra when you go shopping. Admire the grace of a glass figurine, the elaborate decoration of an antique bracelet, or the bright colors of a ceramic vase, but do not take them home. Think of it as a trip to a museum.
The author of the Tao de Ching, the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, wrote: “Those who know when they have enough are rich”.
How much is “enough”? What is enough for one is too little for another and too much for a third.
When the basic needs for food, water, clothing, and living space are satisfied, happiness has almost nothing to do with the number of things. From this moment, the marginal utility of additional things is rapidly declining, and when saturation occurs, it acquires a negative value. When we have enough and we are grateful for this, we will not wish for more.
Those who know when they have enough are rich.Lao Tzu
What to do? Focus on what you have, not what you don’t have. A little exercise will help.
Take a pen and a piece of paper. Take a walk around the house, making a list of all the things. List every book, plate, shirt, every boot, every trinket. Hard? Try to limit yourself to one room. Still not working? Then try to describe one cabinet drawer. Too many, right? And do you still feel that you are missing something?
These words of Mahatma Gandhi are the most important motive for a minimalist lifestyle.
We share the world with more than 6 billion people. Space and resources are not unlimited. Any “excess” that we allow ourselves means that someone else (now or in the future) will have to do without something. In any item we bought, from food to books and from televisions to cars, some of the natural wealth is used.
The way out is to reduce consumption as much as possible, giving preference to goods from biodegradable or recyclable materials. To buy furniture, household utensils, electronics, clothes, books, toys, and much more in the secondary market. This will help reduce the negative impact on the environment and the lives of others.

Actually there is no particular secret for success. It is not possible to create a universal statement for this. The only thing left for us is to improve and learn from those who have already achieved something. Here are 20 things you can learn from successful people.
Measure success in happiness, peace of mind, ability to help others. Money is what brings comfort, opens up opportunities, but for the money you still can’t buy happiness.
To be at the peak of productivity, you must be disciplined in time management issues. In the evening on the eve or in the morning, make a plan of the day, enter in it not only a list of tasks, but also the sequence and approximate time for their completion. Optimize your time to work as efficiently as possible.
The pursuit of excellence is usually a waste of time. You will endlessly try to find mistakes and shortcomings. Instead, you should strive for growth. You can go from one vertex to another only under one condition: you will grow.
Pessimists, complainers – people who should not be in your environment. The more you communicate with such people, the more negative energy you take from them. It affects your mood and productivity. Spend more time with people who support and inspire you.
Difficulty is just another difficult task that needs to be solved. This experience will make you smarter and stronger.
Mistakes, failures – a natural part of the path to success. This is an opportunity for growth. It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. You will only become stronger and eventually achieve your goals.
If you allow problems to aggravate your life, you will get nothing but stress. And this is the way to face even more challenges.
When you encounter a problem, focus not on it, but on actions that will help you figure it out. Having shifted focus, you will feel better and you will be able to find the best way to solve the problem.
Your self-esteem should not depend on other people’s words. Know what you are fighting for, what you want from life and what you are looking for. Set your own rules, do not wait for approval from other people. You do not need other people to prove your worth.
Take responsibility for any actions, no matter what they lead to. If something goes wrong, then it is your responsibility – correct the situation. Focus on achieving your goals, rather than making excuses for why it doesn’t work out for you.
Everyone has the opportunity to succeed. And the more successful people are, the better this world will be. If you see that someone has achieved success, do not envy. Get inspired and motivated by this example.
Your work can be very important, but close people who love you and who you love are more important than your work. True success comes from within. Love and support play a big role in achieving success.
The work is tiring. And sometimes you just need to relax and have fun. Look for a balance between work and life, even if it’s not easy.
A healthy body is the foundation of the basics. Your success will not mean anything if you lose your health. Therefore, so that your mind is clear, so that you are full of motivation and energy, take care of yourself. Get enough sleep, eat well and exercise.
You must know exactly what you want. It will be easier for you to come up with a plan to achieve the goal when you clearly understand what you should come to. Your goal should be achievable, clear, measurable and time-based. Use SMART goals when planning any of your activities.
No need to express your ideas, thoughts or criticize others. These are just empty words. Take action. If you say something – implement it or do not say anything initially.
You must not become victims of the actions of others. Be smart enough to get away from people and situations that bother you. Do not hold evil, do not seek revenge. The only way to maintain happiness is to let go of the past and move on.
The past should not put pressure on you. Stop living on what has already passed. Be aware – live the present.
Plans, strategies, techniques, goals – everything can change over time. Do not resist these changes. Learn to adapt to new conditions, especially if they can contribute to faster success.
No matter how old you are, you still don’t know everything – you can continue to study until the end of your days. Moreover, every day you can learn something new and incredible. Therefore, do not stop – get to know this world.
There are many beautiful things in your life. You probably just don’t pay attention to it. Thank the people who helped you, who support you and are just around. Appreciate the little things in life that surround us every day: comfort, warmth, food, freedom of movement, etc.
As you can see, all these things are quite simple, but applying them constantly you will see huge changes in your life. All successful people use these rules to one degree or another. These “rules” are simply work on self-development, on one’s productivity, and the desire to move forward no matter what. Only you and your desire to succeed will help you achieve your goal. Always devote time to self-education and you will be invincible!

SMART is a modern approach to setting goals. The SMART goal setting has helped thousands of people to achieve the desired result. Many successful entrepreneurs have built their business due to in-depth analysis and the right criteria for formulating tasks.

SMART is a modern approach to setting goals. The SMART goal setting has helped thousands of people to achieve the desired result. Many successful entrepreneurs have built their business due to in-depth analysis and the right criteria for formulating tasks.
The term SMART first appeared in 1981 in an article “There’s a SMART Way to Write Management’s Goals and Objectives” by George Doran.
Many people who become familiar with this program almost immediately realize that they have a fundamentally incorrect attitudes to their aspirations. They revised their values, and completely changed their approach to the choice of tasks.
If you decide to put this knowledge into practice, then SMART technology will become for you an effective tool for everyday life. Successful people who allow themselves to spend a lot of time on hobbies will cease to amaze you. You yourself will begin to achieve significant results without breaking into unnecessary things.
There are many programs and techniques that allow us to achieve our goals. They all have varying degrees of effectiveness and are used by many people. However, there are not so many methods to help determine these very goals. SMART is the most effective of them.
Goals are future-focused achievement. Almost always its a long-term process.
Although achieving goals of any kind is almost always beneficial, ordinary goals have several drawbacks. On the one hand, they are often arbitrary, which means that even if you achieve your goal, it may not bring significant benefits to your life.
In some cases, people set goals that are truly unattainable. These goals can still inspire a person to develop, but more often they lead to disappointment when they are not achieved in the end.
Ordinary goals can also be difficult to measure, making it sometimes difficult to determine if you are really making progress.
Finally, if the goals are not limited in time, it is too easy to be in a state of uncertainty. In such a situation, goals never leave the horizon and are never achieved.
SMART goals eliminate the flaws of ordinary goals.
The word “SMART” is an acronym. It stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-based. Each of them means a criterion for the effectiveness of goals.
By writing down the SMART goal, you work through each of these concepts. It is important to set a goal that is clear what exactly you want to achieve, when it should be done, and how to understand that you have succeeded.
In this convenient setting technique, there is no room for generalizations and conjectures. That’s why you know exactly what result you are striving for and how to track your progress and tasks.
Consider each criterion of SMART goals in more detail.
We specify the desired effect in our personal lives, making it understandable and achievable. Instead of dreamy, general formulations, it is necessary to write down concrete consequences at the exit.
Good goals can’t be ambiguous. You need to have a clear, concise goal. For example, instead of saying “I want to look better,” you could say “I want to lose 5 kilos by the summer.” Obviously, the last example is much more specific and therefore more appropriate as a goal.
According to the SMART principle, goals should be with one specific result.
Include in your tasks answers to specific questions: who, what, when, where, who, and why.
|Wrong goal||Correct goal|
|Create several articles for publication on the blog.||Prepare five educational articles that will be published on the blog with an interval of three days.|
|Learn French.||Watch French movies in the original.|
SMART goal setting involves controlling progress towards a goal. For this, it must be measurable.
Each criterion of the SMART method transforms and refines the goal. The same goals with the criterion of measurability will become more specific.
|Wrong goal||Correct goal|
|Create several articles for publication on the blog.||Prepare five educational articles for the blog, each of which will attract up to 1000 readers per day.|
|Get in better shape.||Run 3 days per week.|
|Become financially independent.||Have an income of $ 5,000 / month.|
Too many people fall into the trap of setting impossible goals. Although unattainable goals can move you forward a bit, you will almost certainly end up abandoning them. Instead of impossible goals, set difficult, but achievable.
Achievability criterion means that the goal is already within your power or is in the growth zone. You have enough knowledge and skills to achieve it, or it will take a little work on yourself to cope with it.
You can step by step imagine what needs to be done, and every step you can do. It may be difficult for you to achieve it, but it does not scare you. The goal can be doubtful, but does not paralyze the will.
If the goal seems unattainable, it’s best to set an intermediate goal that is accessible to you. If the goal is set and you put it off – you need to set an easier goal.
|Wrong goal||Correct goal|
|Instruct the manager to write five blog articles.||Instruct the copywriter to write five articles for the blog.|
|Jump with a parachute alone.||Jump with a parachute in tandem 3 times.|
|Start a blog.||Write interesting posts on Facebook.|
This criterion for the SMART goal method requires an analysis of the question “Why do I want this?”.
Not all goals are as important as others. If the goal does not match your overall plan for life, achieving it may not give you anything.
To make the goal useful, make sure that it is worth your time, its achievement will bring positive results to your life, and also that this goal is at least to some extent consistent with your other goals.
You can lead a healthy lifestyle in different ways: run, eat right, swim, play volleyball. You need to check what suits you best. Examine yourself: what you feel, going the different ways of a healthy life.
If the goal is complex and you are not sure that you want to pursue it, I recommend setting an intermediate goal for the experiment. Walk part of the way and see how it is – is there any desire to continue to strive for it?
|Wrong goal||Correct goal|
|The fact of writing articles on a blog is important, quality and value do not matter.||I need to write articles that will increase traffic and conversion.|
|Become a software engineer.||Understand whether you like working with code or want income, like a software developer.|
A goal without bounds is doomed to failure from the start. Creating an accurate time frame motivates, serves as a reminder, and helps to maintain a given pace.
In management, this is an important criterion for each goal.
|Wrong goal||Correct goal|
|Create several articles for publication on the blog.||Prepare five educational articles that will be published on the blog before August 1, 2020.|
The ability to set SMART goals helps not only in business. The concept of goal setting is used by ordinary people for personal purposes. The SMART system provides clarity in the implementation of tasks.
Consider the main advantages of SMART goals:
If you have SMART goals, then you have a clear direction for completing your tasks. If you have a business, these goals help and simplify the decision-making process every day.
Help in planning.
By learning to set goals, you will reach a more advanced level of task planning for both your business and personal everyday problems.
Getting a quick result.
Properly formulated SMART goals help you quickly achieve your goals. It will take you less time to perform unproductive activities.
Means of motivation.
If you have a big goal, then it will become an instrument of motivation for you.
The SMART system is useful both for strategy development in a large company, and for personal purposes.
SMART goals are a great option for short-term planning. Long-term planning has little to do with SMART technology. For example: “I want to buy a house in 20 years” – this is not the goal for planning using the SMART technique. But you still can make a list of small goals using the SMART method that will help you to achieve such a big goal, like buying a house.
It’s important to understand that the SMART goals will work only if there is a presence of active actions to achieve the stated goals. If you know in advance that there is a goal, but there are no actions – you can not expect a big effect.
SMART goal setting will be useful for your own planning. Just don’t waste your time – right now find a piece of paper, take a pen and test the SMART technique personally or get a convenient worksheet below!

Do you want to change your life, but you lack strength and motivation? Then get inspired with the best inspirational and motivational movies about people who have become happy and successful no matter what. Movies in which heroes overpower themselves and change their lives in difficult circumstances.
The best inspirational and motivational movies you need to watch if you haven’t.
Do you remember at least one movie with Will Smith that would not make you cry (of course, except for “Men in Black”)?
And this movie is not an exception, the hero of which fell into tragedy and cannot come to his senses in any way. He no longer cares about once relevant things.
Now his life is a looped torture, repeating day by day. Friends and colleagues do their best to support him, but no words help anymore. Then they come up with an extremely strange plan that should help him.
Unexpected denouement, touching plot, and unconditional motivation.
A guy who has every opportunity to become a successful careerist, get into high society, find a beautiful wife and gain the status of a wealthy family man, leaves everything, and goes on a trip.
It turned out that such a life was not for him: he was tired of the quarrels of his parents, of the society around him, of himself. And now he has to find a goal in life.
This is the story of the brilliant former baseball player Billy Bean, who accepted the offer to become a coach. Billy was able to assemble an excellent baseball team from the “losers”.
The plot is like a comedy, but it’s not quite like that. This is a drama about a man who is completely absorbed in his idea and reached the goal considering that almost no one believed in him.
The story of an emigrant caring for a rich man chained to a wheelchair is not only an example of a friendly union that affirms tolerance and mutual understanding.
Together they form a completely new force, a kind of tandem, where on the one hand there is a remarkable mind, refinement, and very great moral strength, and on the other hand youth, recklessness and mobility.
This is also a story about how to change your life for the better. How to overcome your criminal inclinations, get out of a dysfunctional social environment and go on the right path.
One of the most motivating and relevant movies of our time, shot by David Fincher, about the youngest billionaire in the world, Mark Zuckerberg, whose success story began with unrequited love. The girl rejected the nerd and then this same nerd was upset and created the most popular social network.
This is one of the best movies in the history of cinema, but for highly impressionable people, I would not recommend watching this movie. The plot is this: the boy, having received a special task at school, decides to change the world. He is so imbued with the idea that he translates it into reality, helping strangers. He takes action to launch a series of good deeds on a global scale.
Interestingly, the theory that the hero adheres to works in real life. Can you repeat it?
In the 60s of the last century, a story about a grandiose deception, which was organized by a married couple of artists Margaret and Walter Keen, thundered around the world.
Well-sold paintings of children with big eyes, as it turned out, were not painted by the person who was worshiped and whose talent was sincerely admired.
The hero of Jim Carrey is a man without a purpose in life, lazy, a little boring, he can not even answer the call of his best friend. In general, it’s easier for him to stay at home and abandon the party, having come up with stupid excuses than to enter the “big world”.
But everything changes when he meets a girl. At the risk, perhaps for the first time in his life, he agrees to the experiment — always say yes.
“The Help” is a movie dedicated to the problems of society. In fact, the picture is deeply tragic and philosophical, and having watched this movie you cannot remain indifferent. Very emotional, soul-taking, kind, warm, and very instructive drama.
The movie is perfect in absolutely everything and for those who have a heart. And, of course, the movie motivates always to be honest – first of all with yourself.
The movie is interesting from the first minutes. Andrew Niman is a first-year student at the prestigious Shaffer Conservatory, who loves Buddy Rich and dreams of becoming a famed drummer as well.
University guru Terence Fletcher invites the young man into the ensemble, but the maestro has rather strict and abusive methods of working with young talents. Fletcher hurls a chair at him, slaps him, and berates him in front of the ensemble.
Now Miles has to prove that he is the best in his field.
One of the most famous movies about romantic relationships, and in particular about “life restart”. “500 Days of Summer” is a story about the alternation of ups and downs, sorrows, and moments of happiness, told in the context of the relationship of a young couple.
The lively and energetic editing, the original narrative frame, as well as the acting achievements of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zoe Deschanel, make “500 Days of Summer” a wonderful movie that rhymes with changing seasons.
This is a story about the development of relations between a man and a woman who went through bitter losses and psychiatric treatment.
The chemistry between the characters is created by the efforts of outstanding performers – the eccentric Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence turn a lightweight drama into a gentle and truly motivating movie that allows you to believe in the possibility of breaking the deadlock stages of life.
A magnificent touching comedy in which two patients with cancer decide to do everything that they did not have time to do in their youth. Skydiving? Maybe. Racing on vintage cars? Done. See the pyramids? Fine. To discover the joy of life before it is too late? Right!
Dan Millman is the most talented gymnast in college, and his dream is to perform at the Olympics. He is quite successful in everything, he has friends and money, as well as noisy parties, girls and fame.
But his whole world is turning upside down after a serious sports injury received in training. And only the mysterious stranger Socrates and the girl Joy can help him start his life anew and completely rebuild his inner world.
How to learn to look inside yourself to find the only place where you can find out what you need?
The story of a father who got out of poverty thanks to his perseverance and hard work. A simple seller could become a stockbroker and build a stunning career. This movie is a good example of how not to give up and go to your goal no matter what.
For Prince Albert, public speaking is a nightmare. He is tormented by a nervous stutter, and he cannot speak to the country.
Prince does not think about the royal crown, but the circumstances are such that after the abdication of the throne of his older brother, Albert is the only contender for the throne. And, like any king, Albert needs to learn to speak in public.
A motivational story about the boxing achievements of Mickey Ward. It shows his relationship with his family, and in particular with his addict brother Dicky Eklund.
The movie shows the unpleasant aspects of family life. Dickie’s drug addiction, conflicts with senior family members, and easy crimes to make them overcome circumstances and pull themselves together.
A motivating drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal talks about a midlife crisis. It shows how to change your life for the better by breaking down existing barriers. The movie has a pleasant and cleansing effect, offering the viewer unexpected ways to get out of life’s difficulties.
Watching movies can be quite useful, because, first of all, they cheer up. No matter how fruitful and full your life is, stress, the long absence of the sun, and other troubles sometimes do not allow you to tune in a positive way. In such a situation – take two hours to watch an inspirational and motivational movie and relax!
You can also get inspiration from movies. You can be inspired not only by characters, but also by fashionable clothes, interiors, architecture – anything. After watching a movie, someone decides to dress more stylishly, someone finds a new hobby or even wants to change their occupation.
The world of movies makes it possible to see the lives of various people without leaving home and also learn from their mistakes. Why not take advantage of this?

How to overcome laziness? Not everyone can be highly productive all the time. Some of us initially tend to be more serious about work, while others simply spend time on wages. But we are always able to find time for what we really like.
On the other hand, laziness is a consequence of very specific reasons. Perhaps we just don’t know how to complete a specific task, or the amount of tasks is pressing us. Whatever the reason, if laziness reduces your productivity, prevents you from fulfilling your duties and achieving success, you need to learn how to deal with it.
Here are 12 simple tricks to help you overcome laziness and increase your productivity.
It often happens that, having received too many tasks, we cannot do anything at all. Can you adequately estimate the amount of work you can handle? If everything hangs over you at once and you don’t understand where to start, you are probably not lazy, but simply overloaded.
The lack of motivation is also very easy to confuse with laziness. To stay productive, you need to maintain your mood. If sometimes you forget why you are doing all this, make a list that you can turn to when you need additional incentive and motivation.
The people near you and the environment you are in are extremely important. Does this environment help to be organized and productive? Or maybe people around prefer to procrastinate instead of following their goal? If you surround yourself with those who love their work, retain inspiration, and think creatively, their enthusiasm will pass on to you. In addition, make sure that your workplace meets all your needs.
Try to get the most out of the time you have to work. Look at your to-do list and prioritize – you can do it in your mind, on paper, or in the planning application on your computer or smartphone. If you know what stage you are at now, this alone will not allow the deadline to sneak up suddenly, and it will be easier for you to work productively, even if you are used to solving tasks in pieces.
If you are used to thinking that work is bad and entertainment is good, any work will be perceived as punishment. Do not forget about the good things in the work — for example, the higher goals of your organization or the feeling that you are doing something significant.
It’s easy to get lazy if you don’t see the point in what you have to do. Try this: when making a to-do list, mention how you will benefit from each task. When you focus on benefits and personal goals, work becomes much more rewarding. Identify the value hidden in each task, and then work for that value.
If you tend to put off the most difficult tasks at the last moment, put everything upside down and start doing them first. Choose one or two and focus entirely on them. Do not try to do everything at once. Remember: you are working hard to achieve your goal, and it will take time.
As you know, maintaining new healthy habits is difficult. One of the most effective methods to keep the result is to monitor how new habits affect your productivity. When you understand that responsibility helps you achieve your goals, maintaining it will become easier.
If you want to achieve a goal, find a new job, run a marathon or paint a picture in oil – tell others about it! Knowing that they will certainly ask how things are going will not let you relax.
Breaks are needed, but only if they are short and cannot slow you down. For example, you can work the first 45 minutes of every hour, and then take a 15-minute break. Or you can use Pomodoro Technique. Using this method, you break your workday into 25-minute chunks separated by five-minute breaks. These intervals are referred to as pomodoros. After about four pomodoros, you take a longer break of about 15 to 20 minutes. Use the timer on your smartphone to keep track of time.
Ask yourself: how can I increase my own effectiveness? Is there a way to make something better? Is it possible to delegate this task to someone else or even automate it? By simplifying, automating and delegating, you can do much more with the same effort.
Even if you try all the life hacks and guides of the world – but ultimately only your actions can really affect something. If your current approach to work meets your needs, everything is in order. But if the lack of motivation upsets you, if you are afraid that it prevents you from developing, you need to start working on the situation. Because, in fact, nothing will change on its own.
The only way to overcome laziness is to focus on the task and complete it. If you want to achieve a goal, then self-discipline is needed. Start working on yourself right now.

Self-development and self-improvement is an important component of the life of each of us.
This process is a conscious management of personal growth, the study of new knowledge and skills, modeling behavior that should be traced in all areas of life. This is an essential attribute of every day spent striving to become better. This is a continuous work on oneself.
Almost all books of self-development and self-improvement systematize such steps for starting work on oneself:
These two processes differ in their goals. Self-development is aimed at spiritual personal development, the formation of positive thinking. The results of achieving such goals are vivid, but immeasurable in numbers, actual results and deadlines (good mood, change of lifestyle, environment, etc.)
Self-improvement is measurable in numbers and limited in time (concrete improvement of skills, scaling, offering innovative business models). For example: weight loss over 3 months by 9 kg. Here, the concrete result is evaluated.
Self-development and self-improvement are in close connection with each other.
Personal improvement is not possible without the manifestation of willpower. What prevents personal improvement:
In the composition of the word SELF-development, the first part indicates precisely that it is a person’s own choice. The opinion of other people has weight, but you cannot rely on it completely
Personal self-development is one of the important areas of modern psychology. This is an activity on the formation of independence, mental activity in such categories as:
This is a continuous process of change and improvement according to self-defined guidelines and resources embedded in the personality itself.
It is important to understand that information overload does not always produce positive results. You should correctly understand the basic principles of self-improvement:
Practical confirmation of everything planned plays a crucial role for personal development.
Indeed, why do we need all this torment? Learning new information, tedious sports, constant stress … After all, you can relax on the couch, watch TV shows and enjoy doing nothing. But idleness is an imaginary happiness, the reverse side of which is fraught with depression and disappointment in life.
A person needs constant growth. When a person stops moving (not only in the physical, but also in the mental sense), he begins to degrade. One example is swimming – in order to stay on the water, we must make efforts. After relaxing and losing control, the swimmer immediately goes to the bottom.
For example, take a look around and compare happy and unhappy friends. What is the difference? The happy ones open a new business, study, go in for sports, constantly travel, learn something new. The unfortunate people have worked at one job for decades, have fun only with beer, and are constantly looking for those responsible for their failures.
The answer to our question is simple – it is necessary to engage in self-development in order to become happy. Anyone who has taken this path understands that pleasure brings both the process itself and the results. And that this resource is inexhaustible, because the top bar of excellence simply does not exist.
Universal steps do not exist. All individually, but here are the global stages.
They come through our own experience, which is much more important than the advice of others. What matters is not so much the errors themselves as how to overcome them, the conclusions made, and further decisions.
Given their own mistakes, it is important to “get off the spiral” in time, without committing them again and again. Awareness of the importance of change makes a breakthrough. The correctness of the first step determines the effectiveness of the entire path.
It should be as outlined as possible. For its clarity, it is important:
Is the goal really that important? How to verify this? The signal is the irresistibility of desire. If even strong obstacles cannot break the will to achieve a result, but, on the contrary, strengthen it, therefore, loyalty to the goal is not in doubt. If motivation subsides, the desire to go to the goal weakens, perhaps it is not formulated correctly.
Having determined the goal, you should develop a plan of movement to it. That allows you to split the overall goal into smaller tasks, the implementation of which is easy to control at individual stages. For example, the goal of improving your physical form is divided into tasks:
The goal should not be comprehensive and should not cover different aspects of life. It is better to narrow it down to a visible size by defining a time frame so that the achievement of the result is real.
It should be done daily. Even a few small steps forward give confidence. For example, with the goal of improving your physical form, you should study the publications in this area, watch videos. To study modern techniques, practical recommendations of experts, reviews of friends and colleagues.
Each step should accompany the joy of what has already been achieved.
Having knowledge and skills, it is important to apply and consolidate them. Over time, it will be easier to overcome difficulties, the goal will become clearer, confidence will grow stronger. The main thing is not to take breaks in the forward movement.
In the process of overcoming problems on the path of self-improvement, they no longer seem so complicated. Own hidden opportunities are becoming more apparent. Outdated installations are easily discarded. Personality is being improved.
The continuous process of self-improvement is associated with the formation of a single individual. Self-development is a progressive movement towards a dream and a clearly defined goal. Therefore, it is important to give yourself a setting every morning for a successful day!
