Setting ambitious goals is an exciting time. Likely, you will feel inspired by the possibilities ahead of you! The big difference they can make in your life is certainly something to get excited about.
No matter how “big” or “intense” your goal may be, you will definitely want to plan out the details of it well in advance.
The ideal way to do this is to create a “step-by-step” plan, which will ultimately simplify your process.
Try to sit down in a quiet place by yourself -or with others if you have a team- and brainstorm how you can best go about achieving your goal. Ideally, you may even consider creating multiple renditions of this plan, so that you can compare them and find the best version.
If your goal is complex, be sure to break it down into a series of smaller goals.
When I wrote by first e-book, I knew I had to write dozens of pages.
Rather than making this a complicated process, I instead chose to eliminate as much of the “guess-work” as possible.
I started by creating each category I would write about. Then, I wrote them down in a sensible order as different “chapters.” Then I did my research in each category and filled each chapter with important facts I could use to help me convey my ideas.
This gave me a guideline to go by. It made writing my e-book a snap.
I’ve learned the more you can prepare yourself beforehand, the easier your process will be.
Try it! Make a detailed -yet simple- plan for achieving your own goals! You can even use a similar template like the one below for reference!
