I’ve been throwing a lot of instructional content at you the past few weeks, so I thought I’d slow it down a bit today with a little author inspiration and motivation.
Dream small dreams. If you make them too big, you get overwhelmed and you don’t do anything. If you make small goals and accomplish them, it gives you the confidence to go on to higher goals.”
I selected this quote to share because it reminded me of what I do when faced with a large, overwhelming project, such as launching a book. I break it down into smaller pieces because I am less overwhelmed by the individual actions I need to take than I am by the end goal.
Just one thing
So today, instead of dreaming about how you’d really like your book to be a New York Times best-seller or launch your speaking career, focus on doing just one thing that will bring you closer to your dream. Keep that dream in mind as you take one action step toward it.
Just one thing.
Just one thing today added to just one thing tomorrow will add up to significant progress by month’s end.
