Five Tips to Turn Your Plans Into Reality
Pro Tip: This doesn’t mean that you will have to live happily ever after on this one road. Just be sure to give it your all when you start the journey and make pivots after really making an effort.
Choose Realistic Goals
Do you remember seeing ads on late-night television for the ultimate pill that, “Will help you lose 30 pounds in one month without any exercise or diet changes”? They never work… because they are not realistic or practical. So when making plans, it is critical that they are realistic. Give yourself a practical amount of time to actually achieve the goal.
Taking the first step can often provide that spark that will help gain momentum! If your goal is to start a medical practice, there are many tasks that lie ahead. So, pick one! Then look into possible buildings and start getting quotes!
Starting is not the same Completing… and that is okay!
Using the example above, if you are trying to open a medical practice and you START by looking for possible locations and getting quotes, there are still many tasks left. Remember that your practice will not open the very next day!
Additionally, every single step should be taken one at a time! And be okay with that. Every large dream requires multiple, measurable, and attainable goals that eventually add up to a dream turned into a reality.
You don’t have to know everything!
Additionally, you do not have to KNOW everything!
Pro tip: This is where a business coach becomes invaluable. They help show the forest through the trees, and empower you to make confident decisions!
Many dreams turn into plans that never turn into action. Often, the culprit is due to complacency, laziness, and/or fear. Likely, fear is the biggest one. So the next time you have a dream that turns into a plan that you really want to see happen:
- Be decisive
- Choose a Realistic Path
- Break it into small steps
- Give yourself time to learn OR delegate tasks that are better suited for experts
Use these tips and turn your plan into reality!
