Take the opportunity today to break a task down into smaller steps.

JULY 8th of ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time.

If you have some tasks on your ‘To Do’ list that always seem to be moved over onto the next list then the next because you keep putting them off, chances are it’s too big to tackle in one go.

Take another look at it and see if it can be broken down into smaller chunks that are more manageable. If you can break it down into five steps and you just do one step each day it’ll be done in a week.

The best way to get things done and achieve the things you want is to just Do Them! So even if you have to break something down into 20 steps – do it and it’ll get done.

When you write a book for example there’s a lot to think about; the content, the chapters, the introduction, the pitch to a publisher, the marketing plan etc. It can’t all be done at the same time so you have to start with writing the first page.

Putting stuff in order can be done as you go and that’s often the case with many tasks. Breaking the task down is itself the first step to getting it done so pat yourself on the back when you get that part completed.

Enjoy
