Ambitious goals are great, but they have their drawbacks. The two primary drawbacks: their success is usually not in your total control and they usually take a long time to realize.

The key to get there is to take a step back from the ultimate goal (like getting all A’s or setting up a successful business), and focus on this question:
Each day, what do I need to do to get there?
The answer becomes the new goal. And when the process becomes the goal, welcome to feeling victorious daily.
