What I’ve Learned

When planning to do anything in life first, figure out the Road Map then Embark On The Road Map:

Road Map To A Dream

Figure Out The Road Map

When planning to do anything in life whether going on a diet, moving to a new job, apartment or state, or acquiring a new habit – there are two steps involved. First, you must think about what it is that you want to do and figure out the road map that you want to follow to get you there. The next step is to choose when to execute the plan by putting your feet to action. Doing only step one will get you a lot of ideas and thoughtful reflection. You could even have lots of lists, journals and well-written thoughts and plans. You also may be able to “see” yourself accomplishing the task in your mind. However, if that is all the steps that are taken, your plan will never become more than that – a plan and a dream.

Embark On The Road Map

When we actually embark on the road map that we have already determined beforehand that we want to follow, it will be just like driving down a road:

The first 10th of a mile becomes a city block and before we know it 2 miles have turned into 10. It is through thoughtful, methodical and deliberate actions that actually get us moving in the direction towards our goal, no matter how long it takes.

Keeping Our Eyes On What It Is We Want 

Keeping our eyes on what it is we want to accomplish helps our feet go in the right direction. That’s why it is so important to write things down. Get those thoughts out of your head and put them to paper. Write and rewrite as necessary, each time refining what the goal is.

Then pick a date to start and do just that: get going. By looking at our written down plan, what at one time seemed to be only a pipe dream starts taking shape and before you know it, you can look back and see progress. Seeing the progress gives you motivation, and you use the motivation to keep going when it seems too long or too hard – you don’t want the road you’ve traveled thus far to be for nothing, right? So you press on. Pretty soon you are well on your way to your goal, no matter how long it takes.

The drive comes from the passion. And the passion is only found in the doing. And doing is something that is “done”, not just thought about. ~Sean McCabe
