You Can Build Anything, One Brick at a Time

Every goal is a collection of much, much smaller goals that matter more.

Let’s say you want to write a novel.

First: that’s probably not really your end goal. Probably, you want to be a published novelist. Or, if you’re being really, really honest, you want to be a bestselling author.

Let’s say you want to be a bestselling author.

Being a bestselling author, first of all, isn’t a fantastic end goal. It depends too much on things that are outside your control. No one can control whether or not readers will respond to their work.

The same thing goes for any goal.

Getting out of debt is made up of a mountain of smaller goals called “make good money choice.” Each one looks a little different, but they all amount to the same thing.

All the parts matter.

All of the little pieces that represent small daily goals and habits are uniquely important. If you can start to think of them as distinct, you’ll have a much greater chance of collecting a bunch of them.
