Just a quick mid-week post/word of encouragement/rant.
I've had a few goals in mind for myself since the beginning of the year. The only problem was figuring out how to approach said goals.
I was thinking too big.
In an age of instant gratification, I've become trapped in the mindset that if I want to accomplish something then it needs to be accomplished immediately. Things shouldn't take time, I shouldn't have to put in long hours of work. They should be done as easily and as quickly as possible no matter how big.
This is a dangerous way of thinking and I'm sure I'm not alone.
So I've decided to switch gears. Let's start small. I have four big goals I would like to achieve and I am going to accomplish them slowly, one day at a time.
I've put together a personal daily log to record each small step I take. One step per day is my minimum. This could be anything from setting aside a small amount of money or going out for a job interview. The whole point is never letting a day go by without doing something productive and/or beneficial.
An original idea? Probably not.
Helpful? Most likely.
I haven't set a deadline for any of my goals, the timing of them being accomplished is ultimately not up to me, but I look forward to the completion of each and every one.
P.S. New EP this Friday.
