Take Action on Your Goal
In my last newsletter I suggested you write down a goal using the word "will" and make an action plan.
The secret to launching anything scary is to take small steps. Otherwise your goal looks overwhelming. And then you just keep putting it off. Sound familiar? I've been there too.
Last week I met with a big magazine editor, who asked if she should start a food blog. I said, "It depends. What is your goal?" She didn't know. A recipe blog would work if she wanted to write cookbooks. It would help establish her voice and interests. But if she wanted to consult with non-profits, which she also mentioned, a food blog would not necessarily help, unless it was focused on her consulting prowess.
See what I mean? If she knew her goal, she would know whether she should start a blog!
What small step could you take this week towards reaching your goal? Select a task you can do in 15 minute increments, for a total of 1 hour of work.
