Neptune is 2,700,000,000 miles away, but that’s nothing compared to the distance between Setting Goals and Accomplishing Them. I know because I’ve set some ambitious goals for myself this year, and there doesn’t seem to be enough fuel in my spaceship to get there. So now what? These suggestions at Real Life Counseling are a helpful reminder. “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” This also applies to setting goals:
- What is the first step you can take?
- What resources do you have at your disposal?
- Who can you call for help? Who can you help?
- Who can you ask to hold you accountable? Maybe a coach?
- What is the clear time frame you need to be successful in this first step? 1 day, 1 week?
“The elevator to success is out of order. You’ll have to use the stairs…one step at a time.” ~Joe Girard
