How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you reach a goal? One step at a time. I love Dave Ramsey’s financial success program. Why? Because he breaks it up into baby steps.
There are a couple of neat things about that. First, he must realize that making progress towards your goals energizes you. You gain momentum and feel the rush of completing the work. Second, he must realize the psychology behind using the adjective “baby.” Baby steps seem achievable because they aren’t insurmountable.
I think it’s important to understand that when you have big goals, it’s okay to get there in baby steps. You are still going to get there.
