The wisdom of this age old riddle brings us to another question: How Do You Reach a BIG goal?
Answer: One Step at a Time.
I recently read an awesome article by Brad Stulberg, “Big Goals Can Backfire: Olympians Show Us What to Focus on Instead”.
In the article, the author contrasts being goal-driven versus process-driven. He advocates focusing on the path more so than the outcome. This process has been used by successful Olympic and professional athletes for years.
Fall in love with the process and the success will take care of itself!
