The Big Picture

Small Achievements Lead to Big Success: No matter what your goal is, achieving it depends on combining the will to succeed with action. In this journey, you'll encounter countless excuses and naysayers – that's simply part of life. However, while these external factors may remain constant, your attitude can be your game-changer.

The pivotal first step is to craft a personal definition of success. What is it that you aim to achieve? What is your ultimate goal in this endeavor?

Keep in mind that the possibilities are boundless. Perhaps you aspire to launch a video game development business or dream of becoming an Olympic swimmer. Your aspirations are unique, but it's crucial to establish a well-defined goal. Don't hesitate to be specific and list your objectives, even if your self-confidence may currently be lacking.

The Process

After you have your definition of success, it's time to break it down and make it happen. Success will happen just by completing one small task at a time from your plan.

Let's say your ultimate goal is to own a video game development business. You currently work at a dead-end job and you have little revenue to use towards your goal, so you assume it'll never happen and you just go about your day. But what if you took just 20 minutes each day and worked toward your goal?

Small Achievements Lead to Big Success: Here are some of the things you might accomplish:

1. You can research how much money it would take to start your business.

2. You can learn the ins and outs of the industry by reviewing different courses and training programs.

3. You can make appointments to meet with banks or companies as potential


4. You can contact independent game developers who may be willing to take on extra work at a reasonable cost.

5. You can research and formulate marketing tactics.

6. You can create a 5-year plan.

While the business entails a great deal more than these 6 steps, you get the idea of what it means to break down a huge task into smaller parts. If you don't break it down, it'll seem too overwhelming and you won't even know where to start - so you won't get started at all!

But when you decide to spend a little time on a small project, like researching marketing tactics and saving some web links, that's definitely something you can accomplish in an afternoon. And it brings you one step closer to your goal.

Something Is Always Better Than Nothing

You now know that some action is always better than no action towards your goal. It may sound trite, but you'll never get there if you don't try. Just think of how far along you might be if you spend 20 minutes a day on your goal for a whole year. That's a great deal of small, manageable projects!

You owe it to yourself to make your dreams come true, so go get started!
