1. Identify your outcome.
Get very clear and specific on this goal, with explicit, measurable identifiers.
2. Deeply understand the reasons why you’re doing it.
Nobody else needs to understand your intentions, nor do you have to justify your reasons, but it must be crystal clear to yourself.
3. Take massive and consistent action.
It is critical to pay particular attention to the words ‘massive’ and ‘consistent.’ It’s about taking leaps of actions, sprinting, not inching. There is a time for inching, but first, it’s about massive movement. Then it’s about establishing consistency in that action.
4. Measure the results.
Know what you’re getting from your massive and consistent action. If you can’t measure the impact of the action you’re taking, then you’ll never know what is and what isn’t working. Sometimes a feeling can be a measure.
5. Change and adapt your approach.
As we learn from the results of our massive and consistent action, we adapt our actions, our tactics and our approaches.
When things are not working, you change your approach, not your goal.
