Hi Hunters! So it's always easier to keep track of small tasks you need to get done in the timeframe of a day or week. But how do you follow up closely with your long-term objectives to make sure you work towards them? Do you break them down into tasks? Do you have reminders? I'd love to know!


Breaking them down into phases works best. And breaking those phases into tasks. For SaaS Github offers good support for that (they've got a nifty 'Projects' tab built into each repo). For personal stuff or goals which are a bit fuzzier, a note or a Google doc does it for me.

@stelian_dobrescu1 I really like this idea of breaking them down into phases and only then into tasks. It makes a lot of sense! Thanks a lot for sharing

One thing that I follow to keep up with my long term object is- I divide that objective into smaller goals and keep striking it out once I achieve the smaller once. To do this I plan everything with minute details and a clear thought process. I don't know how this is gonna work for you but definitely works for me really good.

Hello! First of all, I love this question! It really made me wonder and introspect. I think you can keep track of your long-term objectives by putting in very little effort towards them consistently. Try and align your short term-objectives with your long-term goals. Everything that you do must at least not push you farther away from your long-term objective, if not bring you closer to it!

@vanshika_chaturvedi Hi Vanshika! I'm glad it made you introspect, and thank you for the tip! I 100% agree :)
Hello! I have my long-term objectives and then break down them into short-term objectives. Then, what's really important to me is including a "if I succeed, the following will happen:" It really helps provide benchmarks and keep things accountable. Would highly suggest!
I'm doing via public accountability through my own personal site. The monthly updates are really driving me this year to make incremental movements to achieving those goals!

I'm personally using Ora, it allows to aggregate several trello boards together. I have a board to handle short-term tasks (CRM, billable activity) and boards for long time tasks (study, ability building). I have a weekly blocker of 8 hours for long-term tasks.

Hello, I think the best strategy is to try breaking your long term objectives into phases of short term objectives and tasks. If one succeeds, it helps achieving the others.
