Well, whatever it is, not fear because today you will get some action tips to achieve your short term and long term goals.
1st step: Define your goals
Short term goal:
How many days you will take to complete it?
What all things you need to complete the project, study material, laptop, etc?
How much do time you need to allocate each day for your short term goals?
Long term goal:
- What is the target time you believe it can be done? 6 months, 2 years, etc?
- Micro-steps to complete it. (Micro goals for each month to get to 3 months goal or even two years goal.)
Whatever the goal you need to have clarity.
2nd Step: Get going and overcome every hardship
You need to start working on it without any further thinking. The more you waste time, the more you will delay it.
So, the second step is to get yourself going from this very moment.
Tackling daily problems and situations is another thing which you should overcome.
There will be many hardships that will stop you from achieving your goals. But you must fight until you reach your goal. No matter what it takes.!
So, therefore, the third step is facing each hardship with a strong mind.

Ups and downs are in each sector of life, the important thing is to stay consistent with the efforts.

Victory: Feel satisfied that you achieve the goal you desired. Celebrate a little, give a treat to yourself and then after a day again re-focus towards the new goal. As when you get to height, you aim for unimaginable heights.
Failure: Don’t put your head down if you weren’t able to achieve the goal. You know there is a thing that “from every failure grows new opportunities”. Take your time, don’t be harsh on yourself, let people support you and you come up stronger again because I know only you can come again and achieve the goal but this time achieving it and that too in a quicker time.
