Large goals are by nature hard to pin down.
Like writing a book.
Make them manageable by creating metrics around them.
Some metrics for writing a book could be:
- Time To Write
- Increase of Creativity
Having metrics has 2 benefits.
First, it helps develop focus, some things become incredibly important while everything else becomes irrelevant.
The pencil that you think is going to help you write is irrelevant.
Picking up mediation could increase flow, concentration, and creativity.
Second, it forces you to create systems which are your ticket to exponential growth.
Having metrics you can begin testing systems that will improve them.
This will serve as a snowball for incredible growth.
So once you have a goal, begin by developing metrics around it.
See how much better you get.
