Make Big Goals Easy To Achieve

Write down your big goal – e.g. I want to be fit enough to run 10km. 

Break this down into smaller self contained goals such as;

  • Nutrition
  • Equipment
  • Building stamina

Break each of those goals into simple daily tasks to complete. For building stamina these could be;

  • Week 1: walk 1km everyday
  • Week 2: jog/walk 1km everyday
  • Week 3: jog/walk 2km 5 times a week
  • Week 4: jog (no walking) 2km 5 times a week, and so on

That big goal is now just a series of simple tasks.

I call this 'Stepping Stones'. Try it on any goal.

Goal setting

Is the act of selecting a target or objective you wish to achieve.

Goal setting is not only about choosing the rewards you want to enjoy, but also the costs you are willing to pay to achieve your goals.

  • Step #1: Take Your Emotional Temperature, around the most important areas of your life.
  • Step #2: The Neurology of Ownership: When we take ownership of something–an item, an idea or a goal–we are more committed to it.
  • Step #3: Outcome + Process: Most people set an intention or an ideal outcome and try working toward it, but that gets you only halfway there. You have to pick an outcome and a process.
  • Step #4: Identify Blockers: When we first set our goals we are super optimistic and filled with hope–and that’s great. One thing that happens, however, is we fail to identify possible blockers.
