1 Simple Thing Action:

Understand what you want, in both long-term and short-term goals. Be specific. Write a mantra: “I want this __________ by this date _________. Then create “Little Wins” or small goals, something that you know you can achieve. “In order to achieve this big goal this week, I am going to do; A, B, C, D.” What happens is you set in motion the momentum needed to accomplish your bigger wins.
