Reverse-engineer your goals (DW #952)
Jul 06, 2021
Even when taking baby steps, it may be a good idea to begin with the end in mind. In other words, you have a big goal you want to achieve down the road? Great. Start with that.
And then work backwards through time to right now.
Need to read 50 books in the next 2 years? That’s just 25 per year, or about 2 per month. Half a book per week. Which you can then do by consistently planning an extra 20 minutes a day (or reading 10-15 pages in the morning and again at bedtime and an hour on the weekends. And perhaps join a fast reading book club.
As a bonus, your mind will be on your side if the task is as simple as a half-book per week or 20 pages per day, where you might self-sabotage yourself thinking about the huge goal of 50 books over two years or even 25 a year.
We will discuss this further tomorrow inshallah. For now, play with this idea. Break down your big goal to baby steps.
This is a HUGE baby step!!
