To get where you want to go, you need to take steps one at a time to bring you closer to your goals. It’s important to plan ahead, have a timeframe for when, where, and how you will work on your goals, and keep track of your progress. Try to make goals that are very specific and small. The video above will share a simple, useful, and powerful technique to define and manage your goals. Use the video in combination with your workbook.

Goals can relate to a particular skill or technique, or they may relate to an attitude or habit you wish to change, such as your sleeping or eating habits. It helps to work backward. Determine your future goals and then work out what you need to do each week.
