Achieve your ultimate goal with strategic action


  1. Identify the goal you want to achieve.
    Start by clearly defining what you want to accomplish. Think about where you see yourself in the future or what major achievement you are aiming for. Write this goal down.
  2. Identify and confront your excuses.
    Reflect on the common excuses you use for not pursuing your goals, such as lack of time, resources, or skills. Challenge these by asking yourself how you can make the most of your current resources or what you can do to acquire the necessary skills. This might involve rearranging your schedule or prioritizing tasks differently to make room for your goal.
  3. Break your goal into smaller, manageable tasks..
    A large goal can be overwhelming. So, to make it easier, break it down into smaller, achievable tasks and set short-term targets. For example, if your goal is to open a cafe, start by researching the market or creating a business plan. Don't forget to celebrate small victories to maintain motivation!
  4. Start with small, focused steps toward your goal.
    Begin by identifying the smallest actionable step you can take towards your goal and commit to completing it with your full effort and attention. For example, if you aspire to be a writer, start by writing one page a day. Focus on the quality of that one page, polishing it as much as you can.
  5. Take opportunities, even when they’re unexpected.
    Stay open to and look for opportunities in everyday situations, even if they do not directly align with your expectations. For example, if you win a prize or item you don't need, consider selling it to fund your projects or clear debts.
  6. Be consistent in your efforts.
    Whatever action you decide to take towards your goal, do it consistently. Set a routine that includes regular steps towards your goal, whether it's daily writing, weekly planning, or monthly assessments of your progress. Consistency turns action into habit and builds momentum.
