A deadline is a way to make a dream more concrete—which is what thinking big is about. A deadline also creates a sense of urgency that motivates you to take action.
Set a deadline to your goals and if you get stuck, ask yourself what’s the worst that can happen if you don’t do it.
Before you start pursuing it, ensure you know why the goal is important to you, what achieving it will enable and the risks and benefits of doing and not doing it.
Your rationale will provide the intellectual and emotional power to persist when difficulties arise.
