Setting a stretch goal with Backward Planning

A few questions came up about what's a good goal to set.

Remember that small voice I was talking about - sometimes that's the PERFECT goal to set for yourself.

But sometimes even that goal needs to be broken down.

Since we're looking at something that can be accomplished in the next 2-3 weeks, we want to break this into a digestible component for that time frame.

Consider using a "backward planner".

Basically, you look at your end result, and calculate what the step would be jsut before you eached tha goal - and work your way back form there until you get to where you are now with that goal.

Then you'll have outlined the steps (in order) that you'll need to take to reach that goal.

Then get crackin! Be sure to post the goal to us via email. We want to be able to encourage each of you on your journey!
