The 10% Rule of Thumb for achieving goals

Do you have goals that just seem too big to achieve and every time you start working on them, you give up before making any real progress?

Try the 10% rule of thumb - instead of going for the massive goal, ask yourself what do I need to do to achieve 10% of it for now. For example, if you would like your business to double its turnover from $100 000 to $200 000, instead of going for the full extra $100 000, how about going for 10% of it to start with. What would be required of you to increase your turnover by  $10 000 for now?

Does this seem more manageable? more doable and achieveable? Give it a try...

I'd love to hear your thoughts so please share your examples, questions and stories with me...
