You set a huge goal for yourself, and when you look at it, it feels unrealistic.

Overwhelming.

At this point, most people just give up.

However, some start looking up to other people who have already done what they want to accomplish.

You need to use caution when you do that.

First, you need to internalise your capability to achieve your goal.

How?

The advice most people will give you is to write down the steps in reverse order.

For example, I want to make a million pounds. What’s the step before the final step? Make £999,999?

For those big goals, you don’t even know ALL the steps beforehand. So how are you expected to put together a list of ALL the steps?

“Working with the end in mind” is better advice.

But what I like best is just taking things one step at a time, e.g if I want to be a millionaire, to me it means I need to build an email list that I have a reliable relationship with.

So how do I do it?

I add one person to it at a time. That’s really all my strategy right now.

Tasks like adding one person to an email list and sending an email out, do not sound overwhelming at all. But I know that over time these results will compound into something bigger…which will either lead me directly to my goal or at least give me something to leverage for my next step.
