Author : Nick P

Do you know the answer to the question – what is the shortest distance between two points? This isn’t tough – the answer would be a straight line. When you wish to achieve your targets in the shortest possible times, follow the same straight-line theory. If that sounds vague, think again. You’ll need traveling straight towards your goals at all times. That’s how it saves you the detours, distractions and gets you there as fast as you wish.

Most of the times, people don’t head straight towards the direction of their goals, and they take more time to reach. There are many reasons why people don’t always head towards their goals. Maybe they drag their feet too long, show excuses of lack of energy, being too busy all the times with other priorities in life.

Sometimes people get confused with too many options to choose from. They start with following a path and tweak roads often. Switching paths make them run round in circles getting nowhere. Some people switch ideas more than often and float like a twig. May be they just overcomplicate things, adding many extra steps to get from where they are to where they want to be. Occasionally there are things that just can’t be avoided – serious illnesses and accidents and these will demand your attention, slow you down for a while. People get carried away by the tides and stop working.

Life has so many distractions to offer, it’s up to you if you lose your sight and eventually the goals at hand. No matter what form of distraction they are, the result is that you waste your time and energy getting nowhere. At the end of the day, you get discouraged and disheartened to give up, ever trying to reach that goal.

Be honest with your business goals and what you wish to accomplish from them. Self-assessment is crucial to reach the targets.
