Make a list of things you want to do in your life
Make a list of every little thing you would want to do in your life. The list, also popularly known as “Bucket List”, can be as long as possible. You can include hundreds of things including your career goals in this list and keep yourself up to do these things whenever possible. Also, try to include some crazy things and things that scares you to do to make your life more exciting. Tick mark your list every time you do one.

List down any five job goals such as being respected at work, earning money, completing work before deadline, maintain good social relationship, etc. Practice good job habits every day in your job to achieve your desired long term career goals.
Spend time with yourself everyday
Many of us rarely take our time to be alone with ourselves. We often underestimate the healing power of taking our private times. Staying cozy and comfortable at the end of the hectic day doing nothing, after meeting lots of people and having numbers of work done, re energize us for the better next day.
Sitting alone without doing anything gives you the time to talk to your inner self. It helps you to discover yourself and helps you learn what you really want in your life. Doing absolutely the same thing which you want motivates you to strongly head towards the direction of your dream.
Remember! This one time of your day is only yours and only you are allowed to meet yourself. Only listen to what your heart says.
Your thinking is all that makes difference in your everyday life, career goals and what you become in future. A positive thinking leads you towards that success you always want to achieve. So make sure to always keep your thoughts beautiful.
