Continuing on yesterday’s theme of setting goals (see here), the Ralbag states “When you have a goal in mind, keep your focus on reaching it, and do not allow yourself to be sidetracked by anything else. People who procrastinate do not usually achieve their goals.
In the Torah, we find the model of Eliezer, whom Avraham sent on a mission to find a wife for his son Yitzchak. Eliezer did not even want to eat until he finished what he had to say in order to complete his mission. As soon as an agreement was reached, he did not stay any longer than was absolutely necessary. He rushed back at once to Avraham.”
Write down your goals as well as a plan to achieve them. Don’t get sidetracked. Visualize yourself reaching your goals and the wonderful feeling you will then have. Then of course, ask Hashem for assistance.
