Overcoming resistance

What you have to do and the way you have to do it
are incredibly simple.  Whether you are willing to do it
is another matter. ~ Peter F. Drucker

In my recent post, Taking the first step, I mentioned I’m writing a book.  Recently, a friend of mine turned me on to a study guide by Victoria Lynn Schmidt called, “Book in a Month.”  It includes a plan on how to — you guessed it — write a book.  In 30 days.  Schmidt includes steps for overcoming resistance, which make sense for anyone with a goal.

  • Create an outline.  From start to finish, how are you going to get where you want to go?
  • Break your goal down into small, realistic tasks.
  • Hold yourself accountable; gather support.  Join a writer’s group, fitness club, weight loss program.
  • Visualize the entire goal from start to finish.  Stay focused.
  • Create a deadline.
  • Celebrate your successes.
  • Make it a habit.

What are you willing to do to get where you want to go?
