I wanted to share a quick tip with you that I've found to be quite effective.
We all have goals and dreams. Some of them may be BIG. Did you know there is one very important element to achieving those dreams? It's so simple it can be summed up in one word:
It doesn't matter how big, or small, your goals may be. Action is what will make them a reality. Sounds simple right? Well, here is an equally simple 3 step process that will help bring you closer to your goals by the end of the day:
Pick a Goal
It's probably safe to say that we have many goals. The key here is to pick one of them for right now. It doesn't matter what it is. Maybe you want to learn a new language, maybe you want to make a lot of money. Maybe you just want to start reading more or become a better public speaker.
The purpose of this is that you need to identify your goals so you know what they are.
Do At Least 1 Thing Today
Some of us dream big. Achieving big goals will require a fair bit of work. This is why so many people get discouraged. It's really easy to fall into the trap of looking at the entire picture, seeing how much work we will need to do and then never doing any of it.
The key is to do at least 1 thing today that will help bring you closer to your goals. Learn one sentence in another language. Read one chapter of a book. Create one page on a website. No matter what your goal may be, I'm sure there is at least one thing you can do that will be so simple you'll have it done in the next hour.
Once you've done this one simple thing you're already closer to achieving your goal than you were when you woke up!
This is possibly the simplest step in the whole plan. Now that you've managed to bring yourself that much closer to achieving your goal there's only one thing you need to do. Do it again!
Do just one simple thing everyday. Imagine how far you will have come after a month. Imagine how far you'll be after a year! It's really just that simple.
I've used this technique myself and do you know what I've found? It works just as well on things that I don't want to do. Breaking up large, complex problems into small, manageable and simple increments can make anything easier and more doable.
I hope you guys have found this to be useful. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
