Reaching Your Goals Is as Easy as Taking Them One Step at a Time

You know how your parents always say things like, “The pyramids were not built in a day?” Well, your goals kind of work the same way.

If you were to look at your goals as a whole—for example, having your dream career—they probably look pretty intimidating, right?

Instead, try zooming in on each step that it takes to get there—your first step being something like emailing an old friend who works at your dream company. Doesn’t that seem a lot easier?

That’s exactly the kind of mindset you should have when tackling your goals—take one baby step every day, week, and month to get where you need to go.
