Identifying milestones will help to measure your progress and help you stay on track. Set a timeframe for the milestones and goals: Putting an end point on your goal gives you a clear target to work towards.
Activity The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one. Mark Twain Nominate your first milestone: something you want to achieve by 1 July this year.
Extraordinary A goal needs to stretch you slightly so you feel you can do it. Set your goals that you can attain with some effort! Set the bar high enough for a satisfying achievement! Too difficult and you set the stage for failure, but too low sends the message that you aren't very capable. You are the only person on earth who can use your ability. Zig Ziglar
Tune-ups, Tactics and Tools Continually review your milestones. Plan tactics for when things are not going to plan. What else can you use to help you achieve your goals? here are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, learning from failure. Colin Powell

Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve! Andrew Carnegie
