CL #12 – How to Take Action and Beat Aspiration

It's the start of 2023 and I'm having difficulty motivating myself to sit at the computer and do tasks that were effortless in 2022.

I have been struggling to decide where to take Engineering Our Future and how to manage the time to work on all the ideas I have. I am looking forward to creating new content, courses, resources, and more to help you in your career. I am excited about what is to come!

Aspiration is deeply ingrained in all of us. We all have dreams we want to make real and goals we want to reach.

However, for many of us, turning aspirations into achievable objectives can be challenging. This is often due to a lack of action and perseverance, as well as a lack of motivation to make progress. Despite this, it is essential that we stay determined and keep striving towards our goals, no matter how hard it may seem.

With the right attitude and dedication, anything is possible, and we can all accomplish our goals.

Focus on the Now

The first step to taking action is to focus on the now.

Don’t focus on the future and all the things you want to achieve. Instead, focus on the present moment and the action you can take right now. It’s easy to get bogged down in the details of what you want to do and become overwhelmed. That can lead to inaction. Instead, focus on the small steps you can take today to move closer to your goals.

Set Small Goals

When trying to take action, it can be helpful to set small goals.

Don’t think about all the big things you want to accomplish. Instead, break them down into small, manageable goals. This will help you stay focused and motivated. Try to set goals that are achievable and rewarding. That way, you’ll be more likely to stick with them.

Ask for Help

Sometimes, it can be hard to take action on your own.

That’s why it’s important to ask for help. Reach out to friends and family who can support you and provide encouragement. They can also help you stay accountable and motivated. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

Taking action and beating aspirations can be a daunting challenge.

It's easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged when things don't go according to plan, or when you begin to feel like your goals are too ambitious to reach. But with the right approach, it is possible. Focus on the now, break down your goals into smaller achievable steps, and don’t be afraid to ask for help and advice when you need it. If you can keep yourself motivated and focused, you can start taking action and achieving your aspirations.

The key is to start small and build momentum, and don't be afraid to take risks. As long as you stay committed to your goals and take the necessary steps to get there, success is inevitable.
