One of my goals for 2018 is to read more self-help books and I wrote about the list of books here. Self-Improvement is one of the key energy that we must carry on for our personal development, which has direct benefits in our professional life as well. To start of this year study, I picked up the book – Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by Prof. Cal Newport. It’s been a while since I’ve read this book, and I am really excited about the positive changes I see in my daily routine.
Habit is a repeat performance of our behavior on any given day or time. In a simple term, Habit is nothing but automating your practice. We do it knowingly or unknowingly. If you can pick up something that is helpful for you and make it into a routine habit – there is nothing can be better than this. As much as you focus on building on new habits, you also need to make sure you are letting your bad habit goes.
Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.
If you want to make the most out of your day, stay calm, motivated, working on different activities without stress, the planning of your day is one of the crucial aspects that you should be focusing on. In our day to day work, we do multiple tasks, multiple roles to play at office and home. Everyone needs to have some kind of plan and of course stay on top – to have control over the things we are doing. Life can be stressful, tensed, depressed with out your proper plans. Plans are the steps to reaching your destination. This will relieve you from lot stress, depression, and won’t let you feel sad about achievement at the end of the day.
A goal without a plan is just a wish.

Self-Motivation is the key of success! You know what you want and what you value the most. It helps you to get your day by day work done and to reach your ultimate long term goal. There are multiple factors that can help you to achieve your goal but “Rewarding Yourself” is something by which you can treat yourself as special. Who is better than yourself to provide an encouragement?
