This weeks Millennial Nugget Of Purpose comes from a member of the leaders audience and it simply read eating an elephant. This expression was used by Dr. Anthony Hylick in the episode entitled "Your Plan A.”

 
I love interacting with my audience so if you have any comments or questions that you would like answered on an MNOP please email me koy@leadersinspireleaders.com, thats koy@leadersinspireleaders.com or visit the website and leave me a voicemail leadersinspireleaders.com, thats leadersinspireleaders.com
 
 
The quote I am going to start with today comes from Creighton Abrams and it reads
 
"When eating an elephant, take one bite at a time.”
 
Starting this podcast was one of my elephants & now that I have accomplished that. Building the brand Leaders Inspire Leaders to be synonymous with greatness is where I am heading next!
 
An elephant in this expression is a very large goal that you have set for yourself. If you view things as one big goal it can be a daunting task like trying to eat an elephant by yourself. So why not change your mind set and enjoy the bites along the journey?
 
I know this is easier said than done, so here are 3 techniques I used and I know they will help you too.
 
#1 Have A Big Why & A Little Why
 
Having big goals is what keeps us motivated and striving towards the prize of becoming the best versions of ourselves. Once you have that locked in, create smaller goals and a timeline of achievement to get you to your elephant.
 
#2 To-Do List
 
Every night before bed write out 3 goals that you will accomplish in steps towards your elephant. This has nothing to do with your day to day tasks or running errands. These 3 goals only apply to that big goal that you have set. Maybe it is find a domain for your business if your goal is to have one. It could be to complete a 501 c 3 form if your goal is to start a charity or non-profit.
 
#3  Make Your Small Goals Be Performance Goals Not Outcome Goals
 
What I mean by this is you should set goals that you have as much control over as possible. It can be very disheartening to fail to achieve a personal goal due to things beyond your control. Basing your goals on personal performance helps you keep control over the achievement of them, and you will draw satisfaction from accomplishing them.
 
If you take one bite at a time, that elephant will not stand a chance!
 
As always Be Inspiring & Stay Inspired
