Why Aim for Small Goals

Bookmark and Share
  1. You aim to build one ridiculously large project.
  2. You complete nothing.

Contrast that with this beautiful thang:

  1. You aim for a small goal; you complete it.
  2. You expand that small goal to a slightly bigger goal.
  3. You complete that too. You gradually go larger.

Gunning for Everest's top prevents you from seeking progress; yet, aiming for Everest's little-tiny-mini basecamps gets you moving upward-and-upward-and-upward ' everyday.

Small-achievable-easy-simple goals get you moving efficiently. Yes, Go Big ' But'

Indeed, have that larger goal in mind; but, don't depend on it.

Using that larger goal to inspire your work won't get you sufficient daily progress.

Small goals ' on the other hand ' excite you to complete something by today ' everyday.

  • Erina: Today?
  • Tebow: Yeah! Today!

The Beauty of Aiming Small

Think of Newton's Laws of Motion:

  • Force = Mass x Acceleration
  • An object in motion tends to stay in motion.

When you aim for a big project'

  1. You complete nothing ' until you complete that big project.
  2. Because you've completed nothing, you'll have to use tremendous force/energy/mighty-mite-mite to finally complete that big project.

Momentum says Boo! to You.

When you aim for tiny projects'

  1. You complete one small goal easily/efficiently/quickly.
  2. You've built momentum to complete a follow-up small goal.
  3. You gradually increase momentum to pile on more small goals.
  4. 'OH THIS THING IS AUTOMATIC! I COMPLETE SO MUCH WITHOUT EVEN THINKING! KABAM!'

Getting into the habit of completing things makes it easier to complete more things.

Momentum loves you. Real-World Examples of The Small Magic

Small-to-big-say-hay.

Aim For The Small

Winner = You.
