Roadmap for Success

I quote from the Slice Of Life:

You want success, but do you understand why you want it? What does success mean to you? How will success, as you define it, benefit you and those around you? Only when you get into the nitty-gritty will the path towards success become clearer.

Success is the end result, that one big goal, but before we can get there, we need to break that one big goal down into smaller and closer goals and plans that will help us achieve those goals. What are manageable tasks you can do each day that will bring you closer to your success? Come up with a daily list. Checking off your list gives you a sense of achievement and keeps you motivated. And don't be downtrodden if you fail to achieve a goal. As someone once said, "It's not a tragedy not to achieve a goal; it's a tragedy not to have that goal to achieve in the first place."

Another quote from Slice Of Life on how to organize your thoughts on a goal:

One method that works well is called clustering. Put the central idea in the center of the page and circle it. Then, without pause, make associations, placing them in new bubbles and tying them to the main idea. The result is a complex matrix of ideas, many of which you didn't even know you had.

How often have we set an un-realistic target with no action plans to fulfill it? Or set a target just because others have it? Success goes to the prepared, not to the unprepared.

However, success also comes at a price. Would I want to pay that price? Hmm...
