Small, clearly defined tasks that I can easily act on.
Things like: “Call Becca to confirm event time,” “Design V1 of invitation,” or “ Buy new underwear.”
Why? Well, green means go.
Oh, why are the tasks small and clearly defined?
I think we can scare ourselves into thinking our dreams and goals are overly complex and difficult. Tiger Woods only has two arms. And Wayne Gretzky didn’t have an extra hockey stick. If you consider that our heroes don’t have any superhuman powers, you realize that they started someone and did ordinary things in an extraordinary way.
Once you know what to do, then you find the discipline to simply do it. You stick to the plan. That’s often the hard part.
