Five steps to identifying one key task each day to make consistent progress

Step 1: Break your one goal down into monthly sub-goals

Step 2: Define up to 3 projects that will move you towards your ONE GOAL

Step 3: Create a next actions list

Step 4: Set a weekly milestone

Step 5: Pick your most important task for the next day

How can you pinpoint tomorrow’s MIT right now?

A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.

— George S. Patton
