How To Accomplish Anything

How Do You Make Dreams Real?

You want to write a book, learn how to cook vegan,

make a new group of friends, or climb a mountain.

How do you go about accomplishing anything in life?

It actually depends on the kind of person you are!

You’ll be more successful in achieving your goal if

know how you like to go about getting things done.

Which of the following  kinds of people are you?

The Researchers

These people may decide that they want to learn

how to cook vegetarian, but they are going to learn

everything they can about it first.  They will go online

and to bookstores and scour every book on the subject,

then every blog and website about the pros and cons

of eating a vegetarian and vegan diet.

But that’s just the beginning!

Then they begin to interview…everyone and anyone who

they think will know something about this topic and who

can add to their ever-growing knowledge base.

Once they feel comfortable that they have just enough

information to be dangerous, they will eventually have

to commit and do what the next group of people do:


The Cliff-Jumpers

These people know they will never do anything in their life

of importance if they wait until they know everything about

it, so they just take a leap off of the cliff and have faith that

they will learn what they need to learn as they go.  They

sign up for the rock-climbing class without ever having

been on a rock before.  They start a blog about recovering

from cancer because it seems like it could help someone,

though they know nothing about computers or blogging.

They may put the cart before the horse, but they trust

that they can always find a horse to pull a cart full of goodies!

The Micro-Movers

These are the people who know what they want to do,

don’t endlessly research and interview about it but also

don’t impulsively jump into getting started with it, either.

These are the Goal-Setters who decide step-by-step

how they want to get from Point A to Point Z.

They want to make a new group of friends, so they break

down everything they are going to have to do differently

to make that possible.  They look into existing contacts,

how to widen their network, where good places to meet

new people would be, and then they set daily and weekly

goals designed to encourage active involvement in their

process of working toward making new friends.

Everything is broken down into micro-movements that

can be checked off each day, allowing these people to know

they are making progress and seeing their goals reached.

Do You Know How To Get Going?

So do you feel like you are a Researcher, a Cliff-Jumper,

or a Micro-Mover?  Knowing which style fits you best will

help you in taking the first steps in accomplishing something

that matters to you.

For researchers, it is making the time in your schedule

to gather information about your future goal.

For cliff-jumpers, it is just committing to taking the leap.

And for micro-movers, it is taking the time to break down

all of the steps needed to accomplish progress toward the goal.

Whoever you are, and however you get things done,

take the time you need to making your dreams become real!
