The answer is simple: One step at a time. My Girl Scout council is stuck with many, many cookies. I know I have the ability to help, one box at a time. While many big tasks and goals seem daunting at first, it is important to remember that when you break them down into bite-sized pieces, it becomes achievable. I use this knowledge when setting goals for my Girl Scout Cookie Sale. I set very large goals every year, and if I don’t break them down, they can seem overwhelming.
I break down my goals by determining how many boxes I will need to sell each week, each day, and even each hour to reach my goal. This helps me while I am selling because it allows me to make sure that I am on track to reach my goal. Breaking down your goal is a great strategy that can be applied to many different things. Whether it’s school work, sales, or hobbies, once you have a plan that is easy to follow and you put in the work to achieve your goal, it is possible!
