Are you thinking small enough?
Grand ideas are
Do I even need to finish that thought?
I want to make a million dollars.
I want to have a million subscribers.
These grandiose goals are fantastic. They are sexy.
But if we don't have micro goals a.k.a milestones, we can't get there.
So I challenge you to think smaller. I challenge you to think about small goals. Some people would call these small goals milestones, and I think that is spot on.
If you want to start blogging here are a few milestones:
- Have an idea
- Create a blog
- Put content on the blog
There are quite a few milestones in-between each milestone but you get the idea.
If you are already a blogger:
- Set a goal whether it is frequency or traffic.
- What are four things that you can do to achieve that goal?
- Do all four of those things.
Each one of those four things is a milestone.
Think smaller. Think about how to help one person. Don't think about how to help two people until after you have helped one. When you have helped 5 people try and help 50 people. When you have helped 50 try and help 500. Whew that is a big leap there but if you can help 50, I know that you can help 500.
What if you tried to help 50 but couldn't figure out how to do it?
Turn back around. Go back and try to help 5 again.
Remember that momentum begets momentum. That is all that any of us are trying to do here.
