Now that you have the why of your dreams, let’s set a few goals. At this point, you may be freaked out by the size of your dreams or you may be totally overwhelmed with no clue how you’re going to get from here to there.

No problem. We’re going to take it one step at a time, just like we’ve been doing all along.

First of all, choose one dream to go for in 2015. While there may be a number of interesting and exciting dreams that you have, choose one to work on first. You can work toward the others at a later date. Studies show—and my personal experience corroborates (!!)—that multi-tasking does not work, so choose only one dream.

Don’t worry if your dream seems small and ordinary. There is no size requirement! All that matters is that the dream is firmly rooted in your heart and soul.

SkyTheLimit webYour homework today is to set a few goals that seem like they’ll take you to your dream. If you’re having trouble with this, pretend you have already achieved your dream. Look back and note what things you might have done, what steps you probably took, to get you where you are.

While you want your goals to be as specific as possible, also recognize that you’ll be tweaking things as you go along. New information will come to light, you’ll strengthen skills, you’ll discover new abilities, and this will have a bearing on the steps you’ll take. Perhaps you’ll be able to take a few leaps and jumps, something you hadn’t counted on when you first started out!

So, jot down your goals and be open to the fact that you’ll refine them as you go along.

Then take those goals and break them into steps. Break those steps into parts. Break those parts into segments and those into pieces. Break those into chips and break those into fragments. Break those down until you finally get to the bits that you know for certain are easy to do. The added bonus to these tiny bits is that, generally, along with being easy to do, they are also quick so you can fit them into the little pockets of time you have in your day. This means that there will always be something you can do that will move you toward your dreams, no matter how busy your schedule or hectic your life.

You can do it!

I am so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
