You know how to reach success as a writer because you’ve heard it a million times: It’s all about the baby steps, baby.
Break down your goal into manageable chunks and take one tiny step at a time towards your vision so you don’t get overwhelmed — and you’ll make steady, if slow, progress.
Well, maybe that works for some people. But for me, taking teeny steps towards my goals is hugely demotivating.
Seriously, when I think about sending out a single email sales letter, making one cold call, or buying the supplies I need for my business one Post-it note at a time, it makes me want to just give up and binge-watch Project Runway instead of writing.
And I suspect a lot of writers and entrepreneurs are the same way.
