Create the process. OK, cool. But what does that mean exactly?
It means you need a repeatable set of steps that will get you to where you want to go. You won’t fully know this until you’ve taken a bit of action. But once you take action, the process starts to unfold. It’s through action that you’ll see what you need to do. You’ll see the outline of the steps you need to take–and then the steps will fill themselves in. They’ll become clear in your mind.
Let’s try an example on for size.
What if you think you’d make a really good stand-up comedian? You probably would. If you did the work to give yourself a fair chance at becoming one.
Zoom to the end.
What is your ideal image of a stand-up comedian? Can you picture it? Can you write it down? Good. You’re getting somewhere. Now how do you get there?
Well, you have to go do some comedy, which means you have to get get into some clubs, which means you need to call some clubs, which means you need to do some research about some local clubs in your area.
THAT’S a repeatable process. That’s something you could do over and over until it works. Big goals are just processes broken down into repeatable steps. It really can be that simple.
Now, of course, getting the work done is going to take tenacity and patience. That’s just life.
But with a repeatable process, you’ll be there before you know it.

P.S. Did you know there are social share buttons on all of these issues? Some people told me they never saw them before. If I’ve earned your respect, why don’t you send one of these issues out into the world?
