In this post, I have written some ways you can surely achieve your goals, even if you’re a procrastinator. I’ll be providing you with tools & resources to help you succeed in accomplishing your goals. All it takes is your effort, determination, and resilience.
Let’s get started.
This Post Is About The Best Ways To Achieving Your Goals When You’re A Procrastinator
Know The Importance Of The Goal In The First Place
You may have heard this before (or not) but I will say it again: Knowing the importance of your goal is critical and essential to helping you achieve your goals. That may be why you’re not fully committed to accomplishing your goals because you don’t find it significant. If you don’t find it significant, then you’re never going to be able to complete it or even start it to be honest.
If this goal is important to you, then know your WHY.
- Why does this goal matter to you?
- How will it affect you if you accomplish it?
- What brought you to these goals?
- Will it make a big or little impact in your life?
All of these questions are necessary for you to answer before going forward. Trust me, you’ll thank me later. Answer these questions on a notebook so you can look back on it when you want to feel motivated later.
Know your strength & Weakness
This is something I have learned long ago concerning achieving my goals. When you’re ever ready to start on a goal, you also need to know yourself. What sort of skills can you use to get you to achieve your goals? You may already know your weakness which is being distracted and overwhelmed. This can be due to a lack of planning. You may also have anxiety about the process of the goals that it may sometimes lead you to shut down. One thing you should know for sure is that it’s okay to feel anxious, but there is a way out of it.
Using specific tools and resources to better help you achieve your goals is a great way to remove procrastination once and for all.
If you’re in school use a timer other your phone to study well. If you have a full-time job while going to school or something similar, use a planner to help you keep all your events and appointments in place.
Whatever that will help you thrive, succeed, and it resonates with your personality, use these tools to get the job done.

Do Not Let Someone Else Cloud Your Mission
I believe that one of the best ways to achieve your goals is not letting get in the way of your goal. You told one of your friends or family member about a certain dream you want to come to follow. Your friend gave you a word of advice or even just flat out told you that it would not work.
First off, if your friend, no matter how you care for each other, has not dealt with the dream you want to follow, I don’t recommend listening to them. Unless they come from a supporting viewpoint and are giving you sound advice, take it with a grain of salt, and I mean a small teeny tiny grain of salt.
I believe it’s good talking to your friends and loved ones about your dreams, you just need to be careful who you say it to.
And when you talk about it, always stand firm on your choice.
Plan Wisely… With A Planner
A goal can’t be completed if you don’t have goals. It’s important to know how you’re going to complete them if you have a surefire way to go about it. One way to do that is by using a planner. There are planners out there that are made for everyone, including you. Whether you’re a busy body, a mindful lover, a blogger, or a self-care seeker, there are planners out there that can give you peace of mind, knowing that you’ve placed all your events, appointments, notes, and activities in one place. One of my favorite planners that I have used all throughout my college and after college life is the BlueSky Planners. Their planners contain a monthly overview with weekly pages, which to me is easier to schedule rather than just buying a monthly planner.
Battle The Mind…With The WORD & Prayer
In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
The mind is a battlefield. It can either build you up or break you. It can either move you forward in life or keep you in the comfort zone forever.
That’s not good, at all.
However, using the Word of God can guide your path and give you strength when you needed it the most during your goal journey. Prayer is also an additional way to keep you focused on what’s important. Like Joyce Meyer’s Battlefield of the mind states “Remember, you become what you think. Think discouraging thoughts, you’ll get discouraged.”
Tell God your problems and your weaknesses and He’ll surely give you the solution to battle and overcome them. YOU ARE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR!
Find Your Cheerleader or Support Buddy
At times, our goal can’t be achieved by ourselves. Therefore, we need someone, or something, to support us through our journey or be our accountability partner.
Find the right person or group that is going through the same journey that you’re going through, and support each other. Strength comes in numbers. Find that person that will push you and inspire and encourage you to do your best.
Creating an environment that supports your goal is important too. If there are things in your environment that do not resonate nor support your dream or goal, it’s best to let them go. Whether it is tools, people, or the atmosphere, create a supportive environment that meets the attitude of your goals.
Remember, motivation is an outside and inside job. Most of all, it’s from within that you decide to keep moving and fulfill your purpose.
There you go!
