Why You Should Focus On Steps, Not Goals

You’ll learn the basics

Focusing on the steps you take instead of your goals will allow you to learn the basics.

Which is important, especially if you want to progress without getting confused in the end.

As much as it’s tempting to skip steps in order to reach your goal faster, this will only likely lead to disaster. And that’s the last thing you want to happen when you’re working on your goals.

You’ll appreciate the process

You might be taking small steps, but these small steps will eventually get you where you want to be. It may not be today, tomorrow or in the near future.

But you’ll get there. Just think: the experts and successful people you look up to also started from scratch.

So appreciate the process and believe that you’ll get there.

You’ll see progress constantly

You know what’s one of the best things about focusing on steps? You’ll be able to see progress constantly.

Although you’re nowhere near the finish line, seeing your progress – no matter how small it is – can be really motivating. What’s more, you’ll know you’re one step closer to achieving your overall goal.

And that’s a good thing.

You’ll learn more

You’re not just making progress, you’re also learning from it.

Like you’ll be able to get ideas and methods which may not be useful to you now but can help you in the future.

Say, after you accomplish this set of goals, you want to achieve another one. You can easily employ the same methods you used.

Had you rushed through the small steps, you wouldn’t have learned something about the whole process.

You’ll keep pushing yourself

If you focus on each step you take, you’ll be determined more than ever to reach your goals and attain success.

This is because for every progress, you’ll be motivated to push yourself into achieving your goals – unlike if it took you months to get to that point, where you just want it to get it over and done with and consider the whole thing a success.

This way, you’ll be able to celebrate your milestone and then get back up the next day and work to shatter your own record.

You’ll anticipate success

If you schedule the small goals to be accomplished, you’ll know today what you will do tomorrow and the following day after that.

This not only gives you an idea about how you’re moving forward, but it also motivates you to keep up the hard work.
