Remember I-bee: identify, breakdown, educate and evaluate. These are the four simple steps that if implemented can be used to accomplish most goals.
Step 1: Identify and write down your goals
Step 2: Break each goal down into several short-term (less than 1 year), medium-term (1 to 3 years) and long-term (5 years or more) goals.
Step 3: Educate yourself on how to accomplish these goals. Then take the necessary steps to create a plan to accomplish the set goals.
Step 4: Evaluate your progress. Goals are an ever evolving thing. You will find that as long as you are growing, you will have to move through the steps multiple times.
