I read a post last week (I can’t find it to link back to) about how we can busy ourselves about the little things rather than working on the details of the big things.
In a word, we’re busy, yet our busyness is not moving us along with our goals. Our busyness isn’t focused on our priorities. We’re treading water.
Making a plan and writing out action steps for achieving our goals is a step in the right direction. Though how many people write plans and don’t carry them out?
I think the trick is do one thing each day that helps us move forward. One thing is a phone call to a possible client. One thing is writing a draft of an article to submit to another blog. One thing is doing the required mileage for that day for your running program.
One thing is not spending more time on the plan. We already spent time on the plan. It’s good enough and open to revision as things change. It’s time to do something. To act.
Your homework: Do one thing today for your goal. It has to be an action – write the draft, run the miles, call the person, send the form in. Come share your one thing at A Life in Balance Facebook Group.
