This is something I am sure will apply to every single person reading this. It also ties in nicely with my previous post about focusing on your solutions instead of your problems. You can read that post here:

Solutions, Not Problems

Okay, so let’s get right into it. It’s important to take small, doable steps when trying to accomplish a goal.

Don’t try to achieve everything in one go. Just don’t. It won’t happen overnight but it will happen with effort and hard work. I know it, you know it too.

I’m going to prove it with this blog.

Just take a small little tiny baby step every day. Every. Single. Day.

Let’s go through a few examples. Okay, so there are a total of 1440 minutes every day. If you take just 15 minutes out of your day focusing on a small task/activity that will help you achieve your goal, over a period of time (say a month, a year or even a decade) that will have a tremendous impact. Can you imagine how much your life would change if you did something with that consistency?

To put that into perspective, that is only about 1% of your day. Are you willing to spend that 1% on your goals? Do your dreams have that much importance? If the answer is no, you’re probably trying to accomplish something outside your values, and its best to re-evaluate.

To prove my point, I’m going to write down a couple things that you could probably do in about 15 minutes or less every day. Things that I feel would help you become a better version of yourself. I’m going to be spending time doing some of these specific tasks as well:

  • Meditate.
  • Read 2 articles in your area of interest.
  • Do ‘X’ number of body weight exercises (push-ups, squats, dips etc.)
  • Clean your room. Throw away the things you don’t need. Remove clutter.
  • Send out some resumes. Apply for jobs. Work on your skills.

I could keep going on really, but for a second, imagine yourself doing each of those things every day. It probably wouldn’t take you very long and after a few weeks, months and years these small actions would have transformed your life.

  1. Hello exceptional website! Does running a blog similar to this
    require a great deal of work? I have virtually no understanding
    of programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

  4. First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
