Taking the next 10 steps

Taking the next 10 steps.

In this long, middle, tiring, tiresome stage of the pandemic (the novelty has worn off, hasn’t it), here is an easy and obvious tip to boost motivation:

Write down your long, medium, short term goals (make them realistic, but satisfying to achieve).

What’s your next three steps

So write down:

3 things you would like to achieve this week

3 (bigger things) you would like to achieve in the next month

3 (even bigger things) you would like to achieve by year’s end

I have found this very helpful on expeditions over the years – the middle phase of an expedition is always long and slow going, and it feels like no progress is being made – see video below in the desert of death.
