Hey, let's talk about how to stop spinning your wheels, how to get some traction and how to achieve your goals more quickly and in a more productive way. And you could probably relate, you will know your goal, you even know what needs to be done to achieve it, you know what's possible. And yet, you might feel as though you're kind of floundering, like you've put a lot of work and action and effort towards this, and aren't really making the headway. And what I am proposing today is something that I have big time in my own life seen the difference of doing it one way versus another way. And I think you you will as well, when you take that action yourself. And it's really simple. You identify a goal, and then you identify the chunks, the inner workings, the things that directly lead up to that goal. And then here's the really cool part, you work every chunk to completion, you don't do anything else until that chunk is complete. And you can step back and say, okay, that's done. And now I know what my next chunk is. And then you work your next chunk to absolute completion. And as you get a couple of these chunks knocked out, right, you not only step back and say, Wow, I did that. And you can really clearly see the results of all of your effort and your action. But you can also see how they are moving you closer and closer to your goal. Now, this might be something that you think about, for like a business goal, a career goal or getting something accomplished. But it also applies to things like relationships, and vitality and weight loss. And I think the weight loss is an especially cool example. Because things aren't always as they seem, or as as they've been presented to us. So let me give you an example. Let's say we're talking about a weight loss goal. A chunk might be that you agree to walk a mile and a half every morning for a week, you're not just looking at the calories burned, you might say, Oh, well, I've looked at the calories burned. That's not really that many calories, it's way more dynamic than that. You are eliminating stress and cortisol and all these things that are not helping you achieve your goal. and replacing them with really positive, feel good chemicals and emotions. And being out in nature, changing your perspective. And this might play into making subtle, different little changes of choices, feeling better about yourself, updating your own self image, right, all things that help you achieve your goal more specifically. But at the end of the week, you still have worked that chunk to completion, you say, hey, damn, I went out for a walk everyday, this weekend felt amazing. Maybe the next week, your chunk is I am going to remove all the processed snacks for the whole week, right? work that whole week to completion. Again, all those good things going on physically, you're not getting your insulin spiked or whatever, I'm not a doctor, so I can't speak to that stuff. But you're also feeling better about yourself, wow, I feel so good about myself, I made these good choices. You're updating your subconscious programming around this issue, which is naturally going to make all the other things fall into place on autopilot. So instead of trying to use willpower or just looking at actual, you know, the energy of calories burned and calories consumed and that sort of thing. You're chunking it in a whole new way that you can really celebrate and see the results of and note a specific accomplishment and see as they are compounding towards the achievement of your primary goal. Now you can also do this with a relationship goal. Let's say you're married or have a partner and you just generally want to have them better, healthier, more bonded, committed relationship. one chunk could be you both agree to turn off the phones at bedtime. Right? And then all sorts of possibilities open up there. I'm just saying. And you do that you both agree Hey, okay, we're gonna do this for a week right? And that feels really good. And you see from your own experience, the benefits of it, there's a huge motivational payoff for that right? And then you might agree Well, what are we gonna chunk next to Hey, let's chunk sitting down and talking about finances and budget instead of waiting till the bills are piled up on the kitchen counter and arguing about it and feeling stress. And you chunk that out for a couple of months, trying this new way of dealing with things and kind of Monday morning quarterbacking it and saying wow, okay, what do we get out of that and celebrating yourself celebrating your wins and working in chunks to completion. And then the greater accomplishment starts to fall into place naturally and over time and without seeming overwhelming and without seeming so far off in the distance. A lot of amazing things are happening when we approach goals in this way. We are boosting our self esteem, our self confidence, we are taking note of what we did and giving ourselves credit for that. We are updating our subconscious programming and our self concept, which then makes all this beautiful stuff happen on autopilot moving forward. And it's not just you know, action result action result. It increases our motivation. It's inspiring as you can see, I'm a huge fan. But at the end of the day, which I do is just experiment with it. So I hope you have found this inspiring and think of something in your life. You can identify a goal start chunking it out and work each chunk to absolute completion
