Baby Steps Move Mountains
What keeps you on track when:
- you don’t have much time?
- you’ve woken up with a bout of can’t-be-bothered-itis?
- or you’re so full of bright ideas you don’t know where to start?
The answer is focus.
Focus means being selective about what you work on first, rather than trying to tackle all your 2014 goals at once.
Focus means choosing where to begin, even when you haven’t got it all worked out just yet.
Focus means being clear on what YOU want to achieve, rather than trying to be all things to all people.
Focus means appreciating that extraordinary results come from taking seemingly ordinary steps every day in the right direction. That baby steps really do move mountains.
That’s why I created 40 Days of Baby Steps.
The first time I ran this program, I was about to write my book – in 40 days.
If I had “write book” on my to-do list every day, it would never have happened.
Instead, Baby Steps gave me the focus and clarity I needed to make meaningful progress every day, even on days when life was already full on – and days when I really didn’t feel like it.
Baby Steps were small enough to sneak past fear and confidence wobbles: Do I have what it takes? I don’t know. Can I have a go at just this tiny little bit of it? Yes I can.
And Baby Steps meant I could get on with the task right in front of me, rather than by paralysed by the enormity of what I was trying to achieve.
And it worked. For me and for a whole bunch of other busy time jugglers too.
If you’d like to join in, our next 40 Days of fun, focus and accountability start on 6th January, with a range of brainstorming dates available this week and next.
