10 Reasons why we Fail?

Well, for most of the people, the statistics of ratio of tasks assigned to tasks completed is not good. In fact according to a research conducted, 60% of the working group population fail to complete 45% of tasks assigned to them.

The given task can be anything from completing an assignment or scheduling a meeting or forgetting to pay your bills. Incomplete tasks justifies our inefficiency towards the work.

It is not difficult to understand why we usually fail to successfully complete a work. It is majorly related to our attitude towards task management. The reasons that we produce by not completing a work on time overshadow the actual cause behind the failure of a task completion or an unsuccessful attempt towards reaching your deadline.


Here are 10 primary reasons:

1. We do not break down our larger goals into smaller and manageable tasks.

2. Mentally, we don’t believe our goals can be achieved.

3. Our motivation doesn’t include strong enough reasons to move away from negative consequences towards positive results.

4. We never take that first step or regularly prepare/plan for the next step.

5. We don’t create a realistic daily routine that we can stick upon seriously.

6. We don’t make any lifestyle changes to accommodate new habits.

7. We don’t have patience with ourselves; we expect perfection; and we give up/give in too easily.

8. We try to do too much too quickly.

9. We don’t have a plan to get back on track when setbacks or interruptions occur.

10. Our goals aren’t top-of-mind priorities that we remind ourselves of repeatedly/daily.

Jay Abraham once said, “You are surrounded by simple, obvious solutions that can dramatically increase your income, power, influence and success. The problem is, you just don’t see them.”
