I remember a time when I had lost a lot of weight (20kg).
I went home on vacation and everyone asked me the same question: “How did you do it? How did your fat melt away so fast!?”
I wasn’t much of a sports man at the time and they knew it, so there was nothing I could pull to make my effort look bigger than life. So I told them the truth.
“Look, it was just my diet. I gave up sugar, then everything else except fruits & vegetables, fish, chicken and water.”
So, do you still eat meat?
My aunt thought I had finally gotten closer to crazy.
She’d always wanted to lose weight but there was no way she would “hurt herself just to loose a few pounds”.
The truth is, losing weight didn’t hurt at all. It didn’t hurt more than finally owning my dream business, or being with the girl of my dreams or finally changing the world.
Yes, before looking fit and all I too used to think like my auntie. But then I took a first step: I dropped sugar. Then a second step, I dropped milk. And another step, and another, until I reached my dream weight.
Every big goal can be broken down into small parts. But that alone is not enough to tackle it.
How To Tackle Big Goals
1- Break your goal into smaller parts
2- Give those small parts all the love in the world
It’s nice to think big. But if you only ever focus on the big goals, you will live in a pretty daunting world. An ant’s world. Where soccer fields are continents. For many years, losing weight was a continent to me.
But when I decided to focus on sugar only, I became a master of my corner. Once you master one corner, it’s easier to move on to the next.
When Will You Start Your New Business?
The business you want to launch is a nice big fat idea. Its break down is likely a variation of this:
– A new logo
– A website
You stand the best chance of getting started if you stop looking at the whole picture, but give the little tasks your love. So first things first, decide on which task is your simplest, then either do it or get it done. A trained outside source may do in a day what it would take you a month to do.
To answer the question I asked earlier, you will start your new business when you stop focusing on the big picture for a second.
