Eating Elephants

My revelation at New Year was that I needed to have my small steps in place in order to move forward.  I was looking at the mammoth (or elephant) task and didn't know where to start.

It is a little like the difference between watching a movie and making a movie - you have to work out how to move the story to that final scene you can picture so clearly.

For too long I was fixed on the ending of the film (seeing my new lifestyle).  It was important for me to know my destination, but I also need a script or map to get me there.

I have shorter and longer-term projects, all helping me towards my larger goals.  What I was missing was the little goals within the small projects.

I have been writing each week, but need to move three small projects forward together.  Distractions have to be fought against - these steal time from family and friends time as well as from work time. 

So there weren't any New Year's resolutions this year - I had to work on my planning.  Just do it.  Slowly, inch by inch, I am doing it.

  1. Hi Anne,seems to me that you have some sorting- out to do.

    I mean this in the nicest possible way, I’ve only been on Dave Nicholson’s course for 3 weeks, so you , with your ability to set up and make a profit from a Squidoo Lens, are way ahead of me.
    But…I truly believe that the way to be successful in this business is to do as your mentor says,after all you have paid for the course, so get everything you possibly can from it.

  2. i sometimes feel like i spend more time reading than i spend actually doing anything.. i have internet marketing a.d.d.

    i jump from article to article and idea to idea… it’s had to stay focused on one task.

    good luck with your goals!
