But I plan to aim small, break down my big project into little assignments I can do each day.
Do not, do not, DO NOT focus on the overall goal, it will only frustrate and overwhelm you. Baby steps. If you want to write a book, that’s great. A person can only read one page at a time, so why not write the same way. It’s good to have a plan, but in the early stages of writing, it’s not that big a deal. Channel your energy on the little things and it will build into something bigger. If you write three pages a day, every day, you will have a 300+ page book in 4 months. Imagine what you can do with the rest of the year.
If I had a wish for everyone this year, it is this: Live your life and achieve your goal stress free. This is your achievement and the show won’t start without you, so you can take your time. Hell, show up fashionably late if you want. There is no lesson or growth in the destination, so find joy in whatever it is you want to do and learn from the journey.
On your mark. Get set. GO!
