“After all is said and done, more is said than done.”
In the throes of making resolutions for the new year, it is helpful to remember that a long-term goal you are planning doesn’t have to live in a nebulous future. Let’s move it to the present, which is the only place a person can act.
The steps you’ve identified as needing to happen become your milestones. Your focus shifts to the actions you need to take to hit that next milestone.
Create a bridge for more than one goal if you are so inclined…just do at least one. Remember to celebrate each milestone you hit along your journey. Include others in your journey to further cement your chances of crossing that bridge.

Have a magical new year!
