So you’ve got those great plans bubbling around inside. A vision for your life and how you want it to be. But sometimes it can seem a long way from where you are now to where you want to be. And for this reason many people don’t even start. Too overwhelming. And the procrastination takes over.

And we can often make the mistake of seeing other people’s achievements as overnight success. We don’t see the hard yards, or the sacrifice that has got them to where they are, one small step at a time.

The important thing with any great vision is to chunk it down. Bite size pieces.

And to ask yourself some great questions.

Questions like…

What one thing could I do today to move me toward my goals?

And then to do it!

Just one small thing each day and in a year you’ve done 365 new things. By that stage you may well be past that goal and on to the next one! And looking back, it might surprise to realise just how easy it was.

So how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
