Once you have committed to your goal and taken action, you now have to make a plan for what you want to accomplish. If you are trying to make money this means doing the math. if you want to make an extra $1,000 a month that means you can sell:
2 things for $500 each
5 things for $200 each
10 things for $100 each
20 things for $50 each
40 things for $25 each
If you are trying to lose weight, break it down into numbers. There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat. If you want to lose 5 pounds that means you need to burn or cut 17,500 calories. Now lest break it down.
17,500 calories = 583 calories a day for a month
or 292 calories a day for two months
cut 195 calories a day and you lose 5 pounds in 3 months
Math and statistics can be applied to almost anything yu want to improve. Are you a basketball player that wants a better jump shot? Make 50 shots today, 60 tomorrow, 70 the next day and 100 the day after that and see what happens.
Simply doing the math will make your biggest goals seem more reasonable. And by the way you don't have to hit your goal within the first month, as long as you are progressing towards them.
Once you have done the math, you can set a target for your week or month. Where do you want to be in x amount of time so that you have covered some distance toward your goal? Hitting these goals will give you a sense of satisfaction and gratification so that you can stay motivated and feel like your'e going somewhere.
Once you have a plan, it is a lot easier to do the work. So get out there and make a plan!
