Break down large goals into achievable steps

Achieving big goals may seem daunting, but it’s important to remember that setting huge, all-or-nothing type goals can actually decrease our self-esteem, reduce productivity and lower the chance of success. Instead, breaking down large goals into achievable steps, or micro-goals, can be the key to success.

  • Micro-goals provide ongoing bursts of accomplishment, keeping people motivated and focused as they work towards their goals.
  • By setting several achievable goals that work towards one ambitious dream, people can receive plenty of bursts of accomplishment along the way, leading to an increased chance of success.
  • Setting and achieving small goals boosts our motivation, propelling people forward to achieve the next micro-goal, and the next. This momentum builds over time, making it easier to achieve even bigger things.
  • Micro-goals also help people to be much more intentional in their everyday actions. By breaking down goals into smaller chunks, they can prioritise tasks and use their time better. This helps them to stay focused and on track towards achieving our ultimate goal.
