A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. So don’t worry or focus on the whole journey; instead pay attention to a small, easily attainable first step, and then keep taking steps and eventually you’ll reach your end goal. So, when you’re setting goals, always begin with long-term ones and work backward to medium-range and short-term ones. Work backwards to set a small one-step task. This process is also often referred to as ‘chunking it down’. You can deal with bite-size chunks and stay motivated.
