This is how you achieve your goals in 5 mins

We all have goals. 

We often dream about them, but only a few of us do something to achieve them. 

I was like that for so many years. But then I picked up one habit that helped me ACHIEVE the goals that I set up.

This habit is simple. Planning using a journal.

Here is the process that I follow:

  1. I write BIG YEARLY GOALS.
  2. I break up those goals into SMALL tasks. This way, I get a list of tasks that needs to be done to achieve my goals.
  3. Each time before bed, I choose tasks from that list to do the next day AND write them down.
  4. I execute each task AND cross it out inside the journal.

That's it. That's the habit.

This habit takes 5 minutes of my day (that's why it was easy to implement).

I use the SMART method to write my goals. 

According to this method, a goal needs to be:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Time-Bound.

Believe it or not, writing your goals AND separating them into smaller tasks WILL help you achieve them.

Try it! 

You will see that achieving your goals will become EASIER once you write them inside a journal.

Tip of the week

Let's say you have a type with a few different properties, AND you want to construct a new type but omit one property.

How do you do it in TypeScript WITHOUT duplicating the type?

Easy. Use the Omit utility type.

typescript omit

As you can see, in this example, we omit the age property from the UserModel.

Cool right? Learn more about the Omit utility type here.

Blog update

As you may have seen, I have redesigned the blog's main page. It now looks like the main page of a blog 😅. Previously, the main page was a landing page for my consulting business (I moved this page to the services tab). Please tell me what you think!

I also re-tagged all of my older articles 🥵!

Next, I plan to update my old articles, making them better and up-to-date with current information. Hopefully, that task won't take me all year!

YouTube update

My latest YouTube video is out. It explains how to map through an array of objects in React. Check it out here.

Thank you for reading. 

See you next week!
