We can plan and dream all we want; however, until we actually begin to DO something, that’s all that will remain – plans and dreams. Without execution, our plans and dreams will never become reality.
What have you been putting off? What dream seems too big to move toward? Or too small to bother with? Pick a plan or a dream that has been hanging out there and keep it in mind as you plan to take action.
Ready to create a little momentum?
Here we go….
Write it down.
As you consider this first step, what must you do to make it happen? Is there a person you need to engage? Time that should be set aside? Additional information needed? Considering this, does your description of your action change?
Modify this first step so it is very specifically what you need to do to move forward. Call so-and-so. Set aside 30 minutes next week to do X. Spend 60 minutes researching topic A. Get to the nuts-and-bolts of what movement toward your goal means.
Now, write down the outcome you expect to achieve from your action. This is the meat of what will move you toward your goal and it will help you gain momentum, giving you motivation to move to the next step.
Got it? Once you realize that outcome, what will you do next? Take this information and define the next action after that. And the one after that. Make a plan to keep executing.
Before you know it, your dream will be in reach.
It’s all about execution.
