Starting a plan with only the best intentions won’t work unless you have a clear view of where you want to get to, tangible milestones and a set of activities to support these – and some accountability. You need to have a clear connection to your end-goal and your objectives to succeed. I help my clients to identify their goals and then we put in place achievable milestones to get there. It’s easier to work towards something which seems within reach than something which is too abstract or unachievable. As the saying goes: “how to you eat an elephant? One bite at a time”.
