Over on her 2Weeks2aBreakthrough blog, Lisa Haneberg draws a parallel between achieving our goals and training for a marathon. She quotes some marathon training advice and then says...
Try applying these techniques to any goal. Here’s how they might look:
- Increase your level and intensity of actions.
- Vary your level of activity and focus, ensuring to commit more time to your goal at least two times per week.
- Pick up the pace and excitement at least one day per week - go on a positive goal crushing rampage!
- Try to do something that supports your goal six days per week.
- Don’t exhaust yourself by doing too much every day - mix it up a bit.
One additional similarity is the fact that it's a long-term thing. You don't wake up and decide you're going to run a marathon the next day. It takes time, commitment, effort and persistence. And odds are good it's going to take the same thing to make your big goals a reality.
