Lots of people get frustrated and develop negative thinking patterns because they can’t see any progress toward their goals. They don’t see themselves moving any closer to fulfilling God’s plan for their lives.
If you find yourself depressed because you are going nowhere and achieving nothing, learn how to create an achievable goal for yourself each day. Making a daily goal and achieving it, establishes a pattern of positive accomplishment. It keeps you moving in the right direction. It creates a positive momentum that says I am allowing God to use me in a real and tangible way to accomplish something for Him.
Setting goals is a key part of good time management. Setting a God ordained, spiritually beneficial goal each day, and achieving it, is an excellent way to create the positive motivation you need to be used of God and to redeem the time.
