5. Research

Person Typing on Laptop- Research

This is where I might lose some people because I know you want things to be easy. But you are always going to have to put the work in if you want to see results. 

I have to say doing some research can make all the difference. That might even be what led you to this awesome guide!

The great thing about the internet is that there is so much information out there.

I do want to make two important points though.

First, always check a couple places when doing your research. If you are finding the information very similar, it is more likely to be correct.

I say this only because you can put pretty much put whatever information you want out there for others. True or not.

Second, don’t get overwhelmed. You do not have to check a thousand sites. It is easy to get sucked in and bounce around looking for the information you want.

The best thing to do is find a couple sites that you have found to have reliable information and stick with them.

Now, they might not always have the information you are looking for, but when you have a few go to sites, the odds are in your favor.

A pro tip I have for you when it comes to looking up information is also to research it using different key words and on different platforms.

When I say platforms I mean Google, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, or any others you use.

This will offer you a wide range of information in different formats. This can come in very handy.

For example, you might go on Pinterest to get directions for some recipes because you can follow it at your own pace. But you might rather watch a video on YouTube to see how a certain exercise is done.

Or maybe you are someone that likes to read about it to get a foundation and then watch an example.

Getting the information a couple different ways can help you retain the information better and it makes the research not seem so boring.

How To Use This Today

Take some time today and research your goal. Use some key words from your goal and see what information is out there. This can be super helpful if you are still working on your plan on how to reach your goal.

It can give you more insight into your goals and tell you something you might not have considered before.

So, see what you find. Make a note of things you want to remember, look more into, or even try.
