Take a Goal and Chunk it Down

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming task into small, manageable tasks and then starting on the first task.

When you break down large goals into small tasks and accomplish them one at a time, you will move forward much more easily. It’s known as chunking it down. That’s how big goals are achieved.

One great way to discover the individual steps is to ask people who have already accomplished what you want to do. From personal experience, they can guide you through the necessary steps and give you the advice on how to avoid common pitfalls.

You can also purchase books or guides, take on-line courses, or even start from your end goal and look backward.

Imagine that you have already achieved your goal, what did you do to get where you are now? What was the last thing you did? And the thing before that? When you find the first thing you did, that is your starting point.

The affirmation for meditation and reflection: I am comfortable asking for guidance and advice from people who have already done what I want to do.
