Taking the First Step

How many times have you set a goal, only to never achieve it?
You keep telling yourself you’ll do something about it. But you never find the time. Or perhaps you don’t have enough energy. Or something pops up out of nowhere and pulls you away from the goal.
Most of us have been in this situation. A great example is when Frontier trained an agency in Sydney. They wanted to see what it would take to set a goal and actually accomplish it.

Like many things in life, the best answer here is also the simplest.
You’ve got to take the first step.
But how come so many people can’t bring themselves to do this?
Because they can’t make a committed decision. They have all these plans in their head, without getting around to actually doing anything about any of them.

If you’ve had this problem, we can help. There’s a very simple exercise you can do right now that will help you move closer to your goals.
I’d like you to write down some of your most important goals. Making an actual list helps, as it makes the goals more concrete. You can see them in front of you instead of just thinking about them.
When you have your list, choose a goal you can do something about in the next 24 hours. Then think about what you can do to accomplish it.

Remember, you only need one step. There’s no reason to think too far ahead. Start with one, even if it’s a small step.
Just the act of doing it will be very powerful.
Because you’ll have made a decision. A specific, committed decision you can stick to. After taking this step, you’ll see how much easier the subsequent steps will become.
