Define one step for each day, so tiny, that you know you will carry it out. Break the project down into daily bites of work. Then take action every day.
Know in every moment what needs to be done to move you toward your goal.
Always ask this before you do a task: Does doing this get me closer to creating what I want to create?
Only plan items you can execute! Make your plans achievable. Less might be better. When you make plans you cannot achieve your motivation will be killed!
