TYL #35: Taking Action (Even When You Don't Feel Ready) with Tracy Timm
6 days ago
So far, we’ve covered Steps 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 (uh, duh): choosing a goal, defining your “why,” determining what winning looks like, and figuring out what activities will be your key indicators of success. Last week was Step Four: figuring out what actions are going to move you closer to your goal. We called these activities, “key indicators.” Key indicators are essential to actually moving the “accomplishing process” forward. Passion is great. Vision is great. Goals are great. But without activities necessary to move the needle, nothing gets done. Nothing changes. Nothing gets learned. Nothing moves forward.

The last logical step, then, is actually doing the things you need to do to accomplish those goals. In case no one else has shared this with you or you haven’t lived long enough to figure this out, I’m going to give you the secret that’s been evading you and your goals since the beginning of time. It’s a quote from one of my internet favorites, Marie Forleo. It’s simply this:
