Monday Motivation| Baby Steps to your Goal|
Any goal has many steps before you accomplish it, and to sustain becomes the biggest challenge. What are the small ways, one can use to stay the course is sometimes the biggest challenge to define... Sports I feel has the best lessons for this. If you want to be in competitive sports, it all starts with your focus on your MIND and BODY. Train your body and mind to the disciplined state that you desire, while progressing towards your goal. My coaches always wanted to see what I have done for the day, to be able to progress in the course or even in preparation towards the goal.
As a leader when you are working towards a concept or project which takes faith -effort, and patience to come to life; everyday activities are crucial to accomplish. These everyday activities are the BABY STEPS that you need to work through to reach your final goal. Motivation is all about keeping a mindset in which, you can achieve your daily quota of Baby-steps. Splitting every goal into baby steps or daily targets and a routine that leads to final achievement.
9 Steps to creation and achievement of your baby steps:
Mind-map of Goals and targets - Once you have the goal, splitting the same into half-yearly -quarterly and monthly activities can ensure that on a day-to-day basis you are focused on completion of every baby step. Motivation with a complete roadmap is a sure way to progress towards every goal.
Think less ACT more - Once the activities are in place it's all about daily execution. Thinking too much can come in the way of implementation so forge ahead with the action steps.
