How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! Today’s post is about chunking your goals down, which is vital to your success in achieving them. This part is about the specific action steps you will take to achieve each of your goals. Chunking goals down is simply taking a large goal and breaking it down into smaller, more manageable components. This alleviates any feelings of overwhelm and
Oh the blocks that oftentimes surface when you set out to write down your goals. Have you already felt it (perhaps even more than once during this process)? There you are writing your goals down, the sharpie is in your hand, you are staring down at the paper and then the idea comes: I want to…. And then BANG. Up come the barriers, fears and challenges.
