How Small Actions Every Day can Lead to Big Results

What you do every day is more important than what you do once in a while.
We often delay getting started because we don’t have time or motivation. Or we stop and start and lose interest.

Would you be working on your top goals right now if you managed your time better or felt more motivated or supported?
Or if you had greater clarity on what you wanted?

Once you get clear on what you want, unless you quit, you can achieve almost any reasonable goal over time.

It may take some trial and error to find the best strategy for your strengths and talents, but strategies for success are no mystery.

You must:

Know your needs
Be clear
Get a good plan
And stick with it


If you don’t have habits that support your success now, it’s not too late. Consider the cumulative effect of less time-wasting and more intentional action. If you start today you won’t be saying “I wish I’d started earlier” a year from now.

Answer these questions:

1) Where am I headed? Don’t over think the details. Get an ‘initial’ plan and upgrade as you go.

2) What’s my best schedule? Even if it changes, schedule in tasks based on # 3 below- especially for entrepreneurs or people without a ‘boss’.

3) Are my goals attainable? Start with achievable steps. Dramatic changes might be tempting but lasting change comes with steps that fit into your real life. Doing something once or twice a week doesn’t seem like much. But the cumulative effect of your regular efforts = giant results.

And stop waiting for a WHOLE day or weekend to free up. That won’t happen.

The things you do every day matter more than what you do once in a while.
