I have been thinking a lot about how we all embark upon journeys, and I truly think baby steps are the key. (Anyone remember What About Bob?) I have been very overwhelmed this past year, and often, when we are overwhelmed, we shut down.
So, what to do?
Step 1: Identify a Long-Term Goal (and make sure you write that baby down!!!)
Step 2: Identify Manageable Parts of the Goal
Step 3: Sort and Prioritize the Parts
Step 4: Choose Your First Action, set a deadline, and get to work!!
I have found that when I tackle a challenge like this, writing down my goals and identifying the steps to accomplish them can make the ‘big task’ that much less scary.
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get to work!
