Ambitious goals or massive problems only look big from the outside looking in. Large things are just combined structures of small things. By breaking it down into bite-sized pieces, you remove any feelings of overwhelm or sense that the goal is impossible.
A book isn’t just a book — its 200+ of individual piece of paper, broken into sections and chapters. Each page with around 500 words, give or take. The goal is to write a book, so start with a smaller component one page full of words.
A marathon isn’t just a marathon — it’s 26.22 miles.
Don’t start with marathon, start with 1 mile. Don’t start with running, start with walking.
Find your threshold, your baseline, and try to push yourself — just a little bit each day.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
— Josh Waggoner
