Remember To Forget About Your Long Term Goals Every Day

One of the problems of having a long term goal and strategy is that it becomes overwhelming when you think and plan too much. 

For example, for my startup Proxies API one of the long-term goals is to write 100 articles in the year. 

All this overwhelm means that when I wake up, I find it difficult to “get down to” the daily tasks that lead me to my goal in the first place. It is like my brain. Once it starts to think about long term goals and strategies, it can’t switch to doing simple tasks and tactics.

So every day, I wake up and revise my goals and strategies and get them out of the way. Once my brain is reassured that I am on the right track, I try to forget them altogether. Just try shaking it off with the promise of returning to it in the evening. Till then, no re-strategizing, no making sure we are on the right track. I am not even going to remember them.

It might be pronounced by some of you and is probably weird that I need to do it to myself, but hey, that’s how my brain is designed, and it’s a big deal for me now that I have discovered this works for me.
