Let’s face it, dreaming is important. Dreaming is fast, implementation isn’t. Implementation takes time. It takes steps. It takes planning. It takes refining plans. It takes energy. 

And usually, all while you are doing other things.

Sometimes purpose and passion are enough to keep focused on a goal and get there. But for most of us, there is a part of the journey we resist. What do you do then? 

Here are a few things to try:

1) Break it down. What is the smallest forward-moving action you can take? Take it. And do it again.

2) Celebrate progress. Don’t wait until it’s all done to celebrate. Create some milestones and plans for celebrating them. That anticipation helps. 

3) Refocus on the goal. What is the dream? Why does it matter? Write that down to refer to next time. 

What else do you do?
