Â· No matter what you havenâ€™t achieved in the past, that was then and this is now!
Â· Start by thinking about the future and then reflect back. Think about the end of 2013 and ask yourself, “If everything happens perfectly, what will it look like?” Nothing is perfect but even a small change for the better is always better than nothing.
Â· Write down your goal.
Â· Write down a list of all the little steps you have to take to reach your goal.
Â· Prioritize those steps.
Â· Do something every day to take yourself along the steps towards your goal.
