As a continuation from my post last week... Making plans, taking baby steps, and reminding yourself each day of where you're heading is really important. The trick is not to write some random goals on the back of a Chinese take-out menu and then just shove it in a drawer and forget about it. You want to keep the dream alive and in front of you. Hang your goals on your bathroom mirror, or in your sound booth, or on your fridge. Just put them where you'll see them daily. The next step is doing one small task each day toward achieving these goals. Baby steps. One email, one phone call, one extra audition. Whatever it is, just do it. 2014 is just around the corner, but the truth is each day is a new day. Each moment is a new moment. And you can hit the re-set button anytime you want. But ya gotta have a game plan.
Here are some questions you can ask yourself that will help get you off to a good start:
What did you make progress with in 2013?
What are you most proud of achieving during 2013?
What are three goals you want to work toward in 2014?
What steps are you going to take to achieve goal #1? #2? #3?
So, what’s your #1 goal that seems too big or too scary to even write down? In other words, what would blow your mind if you accomplished it? What do you really want?
Write that one here:
This is a little reminder just for YOU… Put this where you’ll see it every day. You got this.
Baby steps. ;-)
