I don't just set a small goal, I set a large goal too. The small goals will be grouped under the large one. I could have the goal of learning a language at the top. Let's say Mandarin. My goal is to learn Mandarin. My first stepping stone goal would be to learn one hundred words. After that five hundred and so on. I could also have the goal of knowing enough to read my first Mandarin book. The goals help me stay on track and doing things I had never thought I could do before.
Here is a summary of how you can accomplish a difficult thing with simple goals.
- Ask yourself what is it that you want to do. Make this your ultimate goal.
- Figure out what the first thing you need to do to accomplish you ultimate goal is.
- Set a very simple goal for accomplishing that first task.
- Once that is accomplished, set another goal. Done? Another. This will continue until one day you realize you have almost accomplished your ultimate goal.
Anyone is able to complete any goal they want to complete if they put their mind to it.
