Having goals are essential to making dreams become a reality. Having ones that are so far-fetched though can be unattainable at first. You have to start small in order to keep yourself motivated and to have a reason to keep striving for more. I took a video gaming class and we studied how video games often incorporate a variety of “achievements” or different ways of collecting. People are greedy and are known to want to do things for themselves. 16Things offers much more for the benefit of others and our mission definitely states how much we care about the well-being of others.
Don’t try and make a “New Year’s Resolution” because those don’t usually work out because of the instantaneous of wanting a change. Cutting things out cold turkey or making rash decisions never last. You haven’t built up a routine to get used to the change. It takes about a month of continuously doing something to get into a stable routine. It becomes second nature and that’s what keeps the drive. Remember to set small goals in order to reach your major goal and take notes about your progress and how it’s coming along.
