Do you know where you want to be a year from now?
(If the answer is no, determine that first, before reading the rest of this post). Are you closer to that vision today, than you were yesterday? Are you closer this week than you were last week?
While we may not know the exact path we need to take to get where we want to be, keep an eye on what you accomplish on a daily basis and make sure it is taking you closer to your vision. Even small steps accomplished each day, like making contact with that key someone, or making slight progress in a progress are all steps in the right direction.
I have tackled some seemingly huge projects in the past, that looked quite daunting when I first began. However through little progress day in and day out, milestones slowly got hit and projects eventually got completed.
Stay focused and break huge tasks down into small, bite-sized, manageable bits. Getting through a lot of bits will eventually add up to a lot.
This way the next time someone comments how fast time flies, you’ll have progress to show for it.
