How do you get to the point of achieving your goals?
You have to get to the point where you need them achieved; you crave them achieved; you can’t live without them being achieved. You have to become desperate.
I’m slowly getting to the point of desperation. The more I see where I want my life to be and the more I accept that I can have my desires, the more desperate I become.
How can you become desperate for your goals?
Now that you have your year and month goals, break them down even further into weekly and daily to-dos.
Sometimes thinking of big goals stops me in my tracks. Not in the energy sense– if the goal matches who you are and what you love, thinking about it will bring a lot of excitement and spark. It’s immobilizing in the sense that you don’t know where to begin and what to do now.
My example: I want to make $4,000 a month. This sounds amazingly great and I love this goal. But in the here and now, how would I get there? Break it down! What avenues can get me the money? What skills do I need to learn now/activities do I need to do now to achieve this amount each month?
Today, my breakdown’s allowed me to move closer to my goal: 15 cold calls, Craigslist ads, Constant Contact send outs and a couple emails.
How can you breakdown your goals today?
