In my previous post I wrote about devising a plan which is needed to achieve your goal in 2013. This plan will be your road map for the upcoming year. It won't let you to get lost among many other tasks that you do in your daily life.
However, having a plan alone is not going to help you much. It's too big, too broad, too general for your every day tasks. You need something more manageable, something that you could do every day. In other words, you need to create series of steps for your plan.
So now, when you face the last day in this old year, it's the most crucial time you think about those steps. Because if tomorrow comes and all you have is a plan, you won't know what exactly you have to do that day and in which order.
The best way to go about creating these steps is to take your plan and think what kind of results you should get every month in order to reach your goal on time? If your goal takes 12 months to accomplish, divide your big goal into 12 parts.
Then take each month and think what you would have to achieve each week so that you reach your monthly goals. So you would need to divide each of the 12 monthly goals into groups of 4 smaller weekly goals.
The last step would be to take these weekly goals and divide them into 7 parts, each one for every day of the week. Or if you only want to work for 5 days a week towards your goal, divide them into 5 parts.
Note that it's important to leave yourself some time to relax, to recover and have some flexibility. If anything unexpected comes up that day, you can still make it up during the week.
Take some time to think about these steps today and write them down. This process will give you a strong start for the New Year. Then all you need to do is to implement each of the daily steps and at the end of the year you will reach your goal.
It's like going from town A to town B on the train. Because the train follows a certain predetermined track, you can be sure that you will reach your destination.
