Baby steps count! (& sometimes that’s all you can manage!)
Cue inside voice: “Monday morning again! Where did last week go? There was so much I was going to accomplish!!!”
Sound familiar? You are not alone!
It’s easy to get caught up in achieving big goals & massive targets. Success is really about consistently taking small steps in the right direction.
It’s only in momentum, even at the lowest level, that you get feedback on whether you are heading in the right direction.
Momentum creates more momentum & before you know it, you’re on a roll.
As leaders, we need to apply this principle to ourselves first & let our team know that small steps forward are acceptable.
Tracking activity & effort is as important as monitoring outcomes – the first two will, inevitably, result in the third!
This sign was outside The Green Store in Trentham (https://thegreenstore.com.au/). Their products are designed to support a “Sustainable Life and Style”. They help their customers take baby steps towards saving the planet, while looking after themselves.
The pattern is simple:
- Set a goal
- Choose a baby step that will move you towards that goal
- Take that step
- Ask: Am I on track?
- Repeat Steps 2-5 until you get there!
