Breaking down your goals makes it more achievable, and less likely to overwhelm you.
As the joke goes: "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time."
Tell other people your goals
Telling other people makes you accountable. So tell the people you trust. Tell your friends and family your personal goals. Tell your co-workers or your networking group your business goals.
These people are bound to want to help you achieve your goals through providing knowledge, a connection, or just by being there to help you through.
Regularly reflect on your goals
Reflecting on your goals allows you to measure your progress and review whether the steps you are taking will get you where you want to go.
It also allows you to check that your goals are actually what you want.
You can change your goals at any time.
Base your goals around what drives you
There's not much point having a goal that doesn't INSPIRE you.
Try to word your goal in a way that excited you and makes you want to achieve it, or include it as a step of a bigger goal that you have.
Rewarding yourself is great for your Mental Health.
When you achieve your goals (even little ones), allow yourself a reward. This releases endorphins, which makes you feel great about yourself, and your progress.
Just make sure you reward yourself AFTER the fact.
Otherwise it can quickly turn into procrastination.
