Finding Your Small and Fast Wins

The number one mistake most people do is trying to do too many things at once, rather than a small first step.

You don’t have to see the whole staircase to make a little headway towards it.

Take baby steps if you want to get things done.

Divide your BIGGEST goal into:

  • Yearly goals

  • Quarterly goals

  • Monthly goals

  • Weekly goals

  • Daily goals

Now ask yourself: “What’s the one step that I can take today that takes me closer to my end goal?”

Avoid dreaming about the big goal. Focus on small and fast wins.

That’s how you achieve your goals over time.

For example:

Let’s say you want to become a self-published author.

A typical book consists of 300 pages. Taking 250 words per page as average, that means you need to write 75,000+ words.

Instead of thinking about the end goal, focus on writing your first 100 words TODAY. Write another 1000 words by next week. Make it a habit of writing 500 words every day and within five months, you’ll hit your goal of writing a 300+ page book.

That’s the magic of focusing on small and fast wins.
