"Do you have a list of what you hope to achieve? One format that is a good model is what Kevin Roberts (Saatchi &Saatchi) calls his 100 Day Plans. These consist of ten items, each starting with a verb and containing no more than three words. Some examples: Reach 15% bodyfat; Organize office systems; Finish writing novel. They give you big targets you can then break down into smaller steps.
ACTION: To start with, why not come up with at least one "45 Day Plan"--something you want to achieve by the end of the year. What is one achievement that would make you feel good about ending 2010? Generate your three-word goal, then chunk it down into what you need to do each week. At the start of the new year, switch to one or more 100 Day Plans and keep the momentum going."
