All of us have hopes and dreams. There are things we want to achieve and improvements we need to make. We want to be a better spouse or parent. Deep down we have a desire to be a better Christian with meaningful relationships. We will do something great one day and in some way.
Most people dream of a better future with vague generalities.
The reason we never accomplish any of these things is that we have no specific steps.
It is like me saying that one day my wife and I hope to visit Hawaii, but we are not making any plans to get there in the future. If we really want to go, then we need to come up with a series of smaller action steps. We need to save money. We need to start researching places to stay. We need to talk to our work about vacation. And on and on it goes. You get the idea.
Whatever it is that you want to achieve in life, the best way to make it happen is to think in small actions steps. Big dreams come in little pieces.
I am not saying these steps will guarantee success in life, but if you do the daily work, then you will be a lot closer to your dreams in a year than you are today.
