When your looking to achieving anything of worth, we tend to
see either the end result or the big picture. These are great as
an initial motivator to either start something, or for keeping us
pursuing it. However what is often lacking is an understanding
of what will need to be done to get there.
In this brief answer I detail the steps I go through when planning,
creating and setting up a project.
Mind hack 1: Decide exactly what is is you want to do.
Then break the task down into smaller steps. These steps help
define the journey and create the milestones you can use to
measure your progress towards achieving your goal.
Mind hack 2: When each stage has been reached allow yourself
time to enjoy that moment. Congratulate yourself for getting to that
spot. This kind of behaviour conditions the subconscious mind to
associate pleasure in achieving.
Mind hack 3: Do one thing at a time, and focus on that until you
complete that task. This instills the sense of self discipline and
tenacity needed to move forward.
Mind hack 4: Be prepared to adapt your strategy, it may be
necessary to change something or deviate the route your taking
in order to achieve the goal.
This gives us the ability to both analyse the goal and create
solutions to obstacles that may get in the way of us moving forward.
Mind hack 5: Use every form of motivation tool, be they
motivational quotes, visualisation, NLP techniques, mantras,
self hypnosis, meditation etc.
This is your journey. Something you want to bring about in your life.
Give yourself every possible chance to make it happen.
I frequently use this quote as a guide.
Think Big, but don’t forget Small
For through Small, you become Big.
