“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – St. Francis of Assisi
When goals seem out of reach or impossible to obtain, it can cause you to become anxious, overwhelmed and struggle to move in a positive direction. It helps when you can break down a larger task, the full season or a job into smaller more achievable goals. This allows a team or individual to accomplish smaller goals and continually move toward winning a championship, getting a job promotion or running a marathon.
This mindset is also described in the Japanese philosophy known as “Kaizen” which is to continuously make improvement; becoming one percent better every day. Find your goal and break it down into reachable daily tasks and you’ll be able to achieve anything you set your mind too.
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
