I’ve always liked the idea of setting a goal for something you want to accomplish and then working backwards from there in order to make the necessary changes in your day to day life in order to achieve it.
Maybe it’s the simplification of our activities or the fact that my ADD can make sense of the tasks when broken down. Whatever the case may be, it feels attainable.
For example, if I set the goal of writing a book of 200 pages by the end of the year, then I’m going to have to write 400 words a day, five days a week in order to accomplish that goal (more or less). This will take about 1-2 hours a day. Am I able to do this? Sounds feasible to me.
Because it’s broken down into daily tasks I don’t feel overwhelmed and am able to climb one stair at a time on the giant staircase to the clouds I call my goal.
