In 1978 Michel Lotito started to eat a Cessna 150, by 1980 he’d finished his “meal” and had eaten the complete aircraft. Now what has that got to do with Internet marketing and the ability to make money online, actually quite a lot so stick with this a bit longer and i’ll explain.
But first ask yourself if you wanted to become the president Of the United States what would you need to do? I’ll give you two choices here.
Option 1. Write out a note saying “Be President of The United States” and stick it on your Monitor.
Option 2: Sit down for a few days and create a step by step plan about how to be the President of the United States. Starting off with something small like become member of the Local school Board, then moving on to Local mayor, then a State office , then running for Governor etc…
The thing is at this time of year many people set targets and goals and they usually consist of option 1. They should in fact consist of a detailed step by step plan. There is no point in setting goals if you have no plan about how to achieve it. In the example above by having your first step of joining a school board you have a very achievable target that will then lead you onto other steps in your plan.
You know where to start and what you can do… you can even break it down into smaller steps…
1. Speak to the head of the school board about how I join..
1. Speak to other parents about supporting me If I run for the School Board…
Once again these steps can be broken down further..
1. Find the contact details for the head of the school Board.
1. Speak to Johns parents on friday at the football game.
The more you break down your goals into easily achievable steps the more success you will have.
I’ve used the example about being The president but I could just have easily set the main goal as earn $100,000 or Generate $20,000 a month from blogs. It’s then just about breaking the goal down into achievable steps over a given period of time .
This is where we get back to our Airplane devouring friend, if he had decided to eat an airplane without planning how to do it he would never have got past the first few days. Instead he sat down and worked out that if he ate 1 or 2 pounds of metal every day he could finish the job in 2 years. You see with a simple step by step plan anything is achievable. Where most people fail is the planning stage.
