Goal Setting for Success

Goal Setting

Elusive Goal Setting

Goal setting identifies things we would all like to be able to accomplish. Lose a few pounds, save a few dollars, spend more time with the family, or put more time and effort into a creative endeavor. Whatever your goal is it’s something that’s likely been off in the distance, things keep cropping up to keep you from finding a way to get it done. You end up frustrated and believing that it’s just not meant to be for you to be able to do these things. This sort of defeatism is insidious as it robs you of the drive and willpower to be able to make a positive change in your life and goal setting that’s meaningful. You need to understand what is holding you back from being able to meet your goals and learn how to follow the path that gets you to where you want to be.

Goal Setting for Success

Goal setting is one of the best ways to try to achieve something. When you know what you’re looking for it’s great to set a target. Having a concrete idea in your mind of what you’re trying to achieve puts the goal into focus. Be it writing 3,000 words a day on your novel or running five miles. It’s one of the keys to success, however, it’s just one of many. Knowing the rest of the path towards your goal is vital to obtaining the success you’re seeking. Learning the right mindset, understanding why you fall into ruts and maintain bad habits, and understanding the reward system that your mind uses to keep you where you are and prevents you from going where you want to be is so important when it comes to finally breaking free from your old ways and making strides in your life.

You can be better and TOPUCU is here to make that a reality for yourself. We’re here to make sure that the next time you’re working on goal setting you’ll be able to achieve them.

Importance of Time Management

Importance of Time Management

 

Understanding the importance of time management and making the most of your time is something lots of people want to do but few people manage to make it happen. With all the distractions that we have in today’s world, it’s so easy to spend all day binge-watching a TV show or arguing on Facebook. There are so many ways to spend a day without being productive or doing anything. Projects get forgotten, hitting the gym doesn’t happen. You never get to work on fixing the things around the house that need to be fixed. You make excuses for why you didn’t get around to doing the things you were supposed to and you tell yourself you’ll get it done later. Procrastination never seems like it’s that big of a problem and that’s what makes it so insidious. It pushes the concept of the importance of time management into a corner to be forgotten. Nobody ever thinks they are going to run out of time and that’s when things can go wrong. The problems around the house get so severe you need professional help to deal with them. Your project gets forgotten or somebody completes it instead of you and gets the credit. You stay out of shape and get health problems. Procrastination is one of the worst bad habits somebody could have.

 

Procrastination is Holding You Back

Reducing Recidivism | Getting on the Right Path

Recidivism

Reducing Recidivism | Getting on the Right Path

Reducing recidivism is a challenge for our society and for individuals.  People who are trying to break bad habits and find ways to stay in a healthy and positive mindset often find that the long-term struggle is a daunting one.  A week or two of avoiding eating bad foods leads to a cheat day that ends up being the end of a diet. Avoiding drinking for a month leads to you finally getting drunk because you’re out with friends and you don’t want to seem like you’re not fun and not one of the guys. Habits are part of who we are and breaking free of your habits is hard work. When a person has committed a crime or many crimes in their life finding a way to get free of that lifestyle is a real challenge. Recidivism is a serious problem that plagues people that start towards a bad path. Finding ways to break bad habits is one of the major keys when it comes to reducing recidivism and getting people to rebuild their lives.

Reducing Recidivism not Just by Punishment

Reducing Recidivism

When we think of the justice system there is a tendency to think only of the punishment of the guilty party. There is a mentality to lock somebody up and throw away the key when it comes to dealing with people who commit crimes. While punishment must be a part of any legal system the guilty party must be allowed to try to rebuild their life after paying the debt they owe to society. Reducing recidivism in finding ways to rehabilitate criminals and getting them to become productive members of society is good for everyone. Having people that can set an example for others who have made mistakes in their lives is a great way to get more people to believe that they too can make the positive changes needed to leave a life of criminality behind them and walk the path of the honest and law-abiding citizen. Reducing recidivism is not only good for the individual but a benefit to our society.

Change Habits: Reduce Recidivism

Finding ways to break bad habits and instilling good habits is what TOPUCU is all about. Things like weight loss, addiction, wasteful spending, and other bad habits are all issues we seek to address and fix but when it comes to the bad habit of criminal activity, it can literally be a matter of your freedom or even your life. While people might think that the penalty of jail and loss of freedom might be a powerful enough motivator to get somebody to not break the law, the truth is that criminality, like any other habit, is a struggle that must be overcome.  Efforts at reducing recidivism must be approached with the mindset of changing that criminal bad habit.

Positive Results

The results of teaching the TOPUCU system to criminals has been extremely positive.  Nearly two-thirds of those who have learned the methods TOPUCU teachings have reduced the amount of their criminal thinking and seventy percent have gained self-confidence from the fact that they believe they can improve their lives by following the TOPUCU system. Nine out of ten say they understood the program and how to apply its teachings to their lives. Positive steps to reducing recidivism.  Helping anyone end a bad habit is a good thing, turning around the lives of criminals is one of the best things possible.

Make Good Choices Every Day

Making Good Choices

Make Good Choices

Make good choices – a critical principle in life.  For instance, after you finish a long shift at work you’ll likely have some decisions to make about what you do afterward. Do you go to the bar and have a few beers and a burger, or maybe you’ll just hit the drive through and get a giant pile of a burger, fries, ice cream, and a soda. You could do these things or you could drive home and make something healthy to eat, saving yourself some money and keeping yourself from eating bad food. Learning how you make good choices and turning those choices into good habits seems daunting at first, but it’s not as hard as you might think. The bad habits you have are things you have learned and they can be unlearned. The good habits you want to have can replace them. It is possible to get to where you want to be and here at TOPUCU, we’re all about getting you to that better place in your life and make good choices.

Self-Assessment to Make Good Choices

Falling into a bad habit can be the result of misdirected emotions. The stress you feel at work can lead you to drinking to try to take the edge off your emotions. Struggling to pay bills might lead you to recklessly spend money on the lottery or other get rich quick schemes. Understanding your emotions and coming to terms with what is happening inside your body and your mind is fundamental to being able to change what you’re doing and getting yourself to start to make good choices in your life. Grounding yourself and taking stock of your situation is something everyone should try to do whenever they feel put upon or overwhelmed by the events going on in their life. What’s the reason you go out to buy a pack of cigarettes? Why do you reward yourself with a six pack of beer after a hard week’s labor? What is the root cause of your desire to do these things? Unlocking this information is the key to understanding yourself and the first step to make good choices.

Personal Development Goals

Learning better habits and sticking to them is a tough thing to achieve but it can be done. Learning the proper mindset and the tactics of people who have improved their lives and benefitted from their good habits is a model that you can apply to your life to get yourself to where you want to be.

Changing Habits | First Step to Personal Development Goals

TOPUCU’s seven-step program for helping you change your life begins with changing your habits. That’s the building block the rest of the program is based upon. Learning what is causing your bad habits and how to change them is the key to fixing the problems that are plaguing your life. You know the things you are doing are bad but you don’t understand why you are doing them. Understanding the why is the most important part of being able to change what you are doing. If you are constantly tired you need to understand why it is that you go to bed later than you should, rather than just lamenting the fact that you go to bed late. Understanding why it is that you’re doing something is how you get to the root cause of the bad habit and work towards correcting it. This is the fundamental principle of TOPUCU’s seven-step guide to self-improvement and achieving personal development goals.

Once you have uncovered the trigger for why you’re engaging in the bad habit you can work to remove that trigger. You remove the trigger – you’re marching toward your personal development goals. It could be stress over your job or your relationship. Anger that you have over something that you’re not finding a constructive way to express it. You could be with friends and not wanting to appear unsocial by leaving early or by not doing the things they are doing. There are countless reasons why we do things but figuring out the underlying reason is what allows us to stop doing bad things and start doing good things. Instead of stress keeping you up at night unproductively fretting over the issues that are bothering you, it could be the reason for going out on a walk to burn off some energy, find a way to quiet your mind and then return home capable of finally getting to bed at a reasonable time.

Personal Development is Hard

Personal development goals are hard, but they can be done. If you’re finding yourself endlessly trying and failing to break through your bad habits then maybe you should look into TOPUCU’s system for self-improvement. Their seven-step program will guide you along the path to understanding yourself and learning the ways to better yourself. You’ll see that a brighter future and better habits are possible for you and that you can overcome the things that are holding you back. You can be the person you’ve always wanted to be.  You can achieve your personal development goals!

Understanding Time Management

Time Management

Time Management: Tool for Success

Bad time management is a habit that afflicts many people. Putting things off until the last minute or even past their deadlines is something that happens to so many people and it leaves them continually scrambling to make their deadlines. Lack of sleep, stress, and work that is poorly done or studying that is ineffective is the likely outcomes of being a constant procrastinator. Understanding how to create excellent time management skills and working to make sure you get the most out of every day is one of the biggest keys to finally unlocking your full potential and becoming the person you’ve always wanted to be. And, having time management that works for you.

Time Management is a Learned Skill

TOPUCU is a seven-part program to teach you how to make better habits that will stick with you for the rest of your life.  It touches on many subjects, from accurately learning what causes you to perform bad habits to how you can create and reinforce good habits in your life.

Time Management

The most important part of the problem for this discussion is lesson six, learning the importance of time management. This critical step in the process of re-inventing yourself is one of most significant actions you’ll have to take as you leave your old life behind and embrace the new life that is there ahead of you. You will be in a far better position to do the things you’ve always wanted to do in your life once you have a keen grasp on time management and how to properly use your time.

Learning how to make and set a schedule is a process that takes time. You have to be honest with yourself about how long work takes for you to complete it. That project that you only set aside forty-five minutes for ended up running three hours. Being able to understand what you can do for an allotted period is vital to be able to make out a realistic timeline for the day ahead. Extending beyond that to the week or the month is another challenge you’ll have to undertake and learn how to master. As you take these steps forward, you’re learning time management and taking control of your life.

168 Hours of Time Management

How do you use your 168 hours in a week? Once you keep track of how you’ve used your time for a week or two, you’ll be amazed at how much downtime you’ve had and how much productivity was wasted by doing things that didn’t matter.

Time Management

When you see what has controlled your life instead of your goals, you come to grips with the knowledge that the things you want in life are only going to be yours if you genuinely point yourself in the right direction and strive to obtain them. Hoping and wishing is not a plan. It’s not time management. You need a course of action; you need a plan and the will to execute it. TOPUCU makes it quite clear that the only person you cheat is you when it comes to bad habits, poor time management and a lack of understanding of how to correct these problems. With their guidance, you can become who you want to be and have the life you want to live.

 

Secrets to Changing Habits

Changing Habits

Changing Habits

Are you looking for a solution to changing habits? Why do you have bad habits? Why are bad habits so hard to break? What are the tools to learn good habits and how can you get yourself into a proper mindset to create good habits that you’ll keep doing every day? Why do you elect to eat bad food every day instead of going for a long walk every day? What’s holding you back from taking that walk? These are the questions you need answers and with TOPUCU you’ll find the answers you’ve been searching for and finally begin the process of learning and maintaining good habits – and changing habits that are counterproductive.

How to Change Habits

You’ll understand exactly how a habit is formed and what’s needed for changing a habit. Habits have three steps to them, trigger, routine, reward. People focus on the second part of this process, the routine that they do. They think the habit they engage comes naturally and is just something they do. It’s not, there is an underlying reason for why they are doing it and they need to understand that first and foremost if changing habits is ever going to take hold. Once the trigger is understood and acknowledged then the routine can be broken down and rebuilt as a good habit that will lead to a good reward. A critical step in changing habits. Instead of eating food after work because that’s just what you do after work you’ll understand why you’re doing that. Is it the stress from your shift that makes you order the food? Is it hunger because you’re not bringing food to work beforehand? The reason for why you’re making that bad decision will be understood and once you understand that, being able to make the good decision will become so much easier. You’ll be on your way to changing habits that you want to control.

Changing Habits Takes Effort

The habit has become so ingrained in your life, be it smoking, drugs, drinking, gambling, or whatever else it is that has a grip on your life and won’t let go.
