Big goals come in small increments

One of the things I’ve learned about grand, sweeping goals is that they’re best served by a series of small, worker-bee-type goals.

So if, heading into the fourth week of the new year, the bloom is somewhat off the rose where your big resolutions are concerned, maybe you can try applying yourself to a small one or two. Or, as so many motivational gurus and organizational experts put it, what one small thing can you do today—right now, even—that will bring you closer to your overarching goal?

Me? I’m writing this one little blog post, which is a drop in the bucket compared to that big, scary Book Project of 2007 that threatens to consume me.

(Seriously—what are you doing? I’d love to hear if and how people are breaking big goals down into digestible chunks…)
