How to Kick it In and Accomplish a Big Goal Quickly

I’m going to keep this simple today.

In fact, simple is how I accomplish most of my big goals.

But you gotta just dig in and do it!

Here’s how:

1) Clearly define what you want to achieve in the next 6 weeks

2) Write down what it will mean for you, your family, your future, etc. to accomplish it.

3) Write down all the steps to doing it.

4) Break each step into a doable – bite-sized mini-step

5) List each bite-sized mini-step on a sheet of paper in numbered fashion

6) Assign a date to doing each one such that when you have done each one, both the goal is accomplished, and it is accomplished in your expected time frame (for example 6 weeks contains 30 working days, plus some bonus Saturdays if you really need them.)

7) Do each step (or steps) each day.

8) If you get stuck on something on one day, don’t stay stuck for 10 days or a month. That will sabotage your goal (ever had that happen?) Instead, find a solution quickly, even if it means hiring an expert, paying for help, etc., instead of spending hours and hours trying to figure it out yourself and getting frustrated and wanting to quit. (Note: this is a key step, because that frustration that pushes you to want to quit, combined with not achieving your goal fast enough, leads to quitting.)

9)  Celebrate what you have accomplished, take a few days off, then set a bigger goal for the next 6 weeks, with the newfound confidence you have from actually doing it!
