Daily Greatness: a Deep Dive Into the Habits of Highly Successful People
Habit #1: Long Term Goals, Short Term Milestones
Healthy, successful people do not focus on short term goals, they spend their time on long term goals. They do not diet and exercise for their upcoming beach vacation or high school reunion. They have LIFE goals. They want to look great and feel great every day in LIFE. They are not hyper-focused on doing things for a singular event.
When you write your goals, focus on setting long term goals with short term milestones.
The most effective way to set short term milestones for long term *BIG* goals is to work backward. REVERSE ENGINEER. Picture yourself at your goal. What does that look like? What steps do I need to take to get there? Bullet point your steps all the way back to where you are now. Often times, people never work back to where they are ACTUALLY starting. So be real with yourself, and make sure the steps you create start where you are NOW.
