Dreaming small is the new dreaming big.
Aiming for the $100M business or six-pack abs (or whatever your goals are) can backfire.
Instead, try this:
1. Create goal step ladders.
This chunks your goal down into tiny steps.
Process > end game.
Ex 1: I wanted to get in shape. Creating a step ladder took me from never working out to eating clean and going to the gym 1-2 hours per day. In the process, I’ve had fantastic fitness transformations and became a much better runner and yogi.
The focus was on advancing each week, not losing X pounds.
2. Join a community with a strong social pull in line with your goal.
Ex 2: Yoga and spin classes.
3. Establish accountability. Let’s say you procrastinate. Be the leader of a club that is all about not procrastinating.
Ex 3: During my first job out of college, I started the Young Investors Club with some smart peers because I really had no clue how to manage my money.
This lights a fire under your tush when 7 people are counting on you. 😉
4. Treat yourself.
Ex 4: Slowly build your biz clothes wardrobe when you land interviews and make it to the next round.
Ex 5: Use a password like L@nd1nterv!ews (not mine).
6. Make it easy.
Ex 6: Join a gym within walking distance.
