Day 15: Start with a Simple Plan

You don't need to see the whole stair case just the first few steps. Inch by inch you are moving yourself closer to your goals. Start today by creating a simple plan. Chunk down your goals to just a few attainable milestones. It may be as simple as finding a work out partner that can keep you accountable for the next 30 days. It may be finding 1 person that has already acheived what you are setting out to create so model them and start by reaching out and interviewing them. The key is to just get started by mapping out 2 short-term goals and next to each one add 3 'Next Best Actions' that you can perform over the next 90 days.  You don't need to see the whole mountain to climb it. You can just take one step at a time and eventually you will reach the summit. If you just stand there waiting for others to do the actions for you then you will do just that - stand still and that's ok but it won't lead to the greatness that you are seeking. 

It doesn't matter where you currently are or the excuses you keep coming up with or the story you keep playing over and over in your head. The only thing that matters is the direction that you are heading in. Take the first step - we'll see you at the top.
