If you have planned your goals and are currently in pursuit of them, asking yourself relevant questions can greatly help to overcome any challenges that come your way.Whenever there is an opportune moment, ask yourself these questions as you go along pursuing your goals –
What were the distractions that I had encountered? Are these distractions valid opportunities or simply liabilities that will cost me time, resources and energy? What potential new distractions can I foresee? How can I avoid or ignore them?
What were the diversions that I had experienced? Did I have a choice in being diverted from my originally planned route? How can I take the new diversion in my stride yet go after my goals in the best and fastest possible way? How can I better handle future diversions?
What were the new obstacles that had cropped up? Were the obstacles surmountable? Were the new challenges within my power to control? Who can help me overcome or avoid these obstacles? Are there any potentially crippling obstacles that I can foresee? How can I avoid them? How can I ‘take out an insurance policy’ against them?
What progress have I made so far? Am I on the right track? Am I reaching the milestones on my path towards my goals quickly enough?
Had there been moments where I was actually complacent and thought I was making progress? How can I be more vigilant and aware of such complacent moments?
What is my next target or milestone to reach? How can I get there as quickly and efficiently as possible?
The above set of questions should suffice to give you perspective whenever you are taking a pause to evaluate your progress in pursuing your goals. You should also feel free to generate more creative questions in addition to all those that are provided above so far. If you are consistent in your asking of focused questions, persistent in pursuing and implementing all that is necessary to achieve your objectives and insistent on always getting to the truth of any matter at any moment, then you are bound to succeed in getting what you want in as little time as possible.
