“With a definite, step-by-step plan – ah, what a difference it makes! You cannot fail, because each step carries you along to the next, like a track…” - Scott Reed.
A lot of us have goals we want to achieve, or skills we want to learn. I’m pretty certain that most of us have the yearning to be great at something. Now that’s a great! That’s a desirable trait, one that we should all have.
However, if we’d be honest with ourselves, we’d concur that setting the goals is not where the problem lies (actually that’s the easiest part). The real problem lies in keeping ourselves accountable and being disciplined enough to follow through. And often times, the reason why it seems so difficult to follow through is because we let ourselves get overwhelmed by the amount of work needed to accomplish those goals.
Well here’s the most effective solution to the universal problem of “following through” I’ve found to work each time: break the overall goal into bits and then take it bit by bit, i.e. one step at a time. Such that everyday you’ll do something little that will take you a step closer to that goal.
I have heard a lot of world class public speakers talk about the effectiveness of this method. I mean renowned speakers like Brian Tracy, Jim Rhon, Tony Robbins, and Myles Munroe; just to name a few. I’ve also seen very close friends apply this method, and of course I in so many cases have applied it too, and the results? GRANDE!!
I have a friend who used this “step by step” method to pursue her desire for photography. Her overall goal was to get good at taking great shots, and to tap into the photographic genius inside her. This is how she went about it: she decided to take and edit one shot every single day throughout the entire year! Today, she’s in “day 179″, and needless to say, her last shot was way better than her first!
So here’s a fun challenge:
1) Determine a goal you really want to achieve, or you started but abandoned
2) Now break that goal into bits; bits that you can do everyday and that will be fun to do!
3) Now do it…EVERDAY!!!
I promise you, the results will be tremendous! And of course we, your folks at seeds in words, will join you in the exercise.. Let’s all head towards greatness together, one step at a time!!
