  • Break up the project into small tasks.  Small tasks are easier to manage and help to measure your progress.
  • Give yourself deadlines.  Deadlines help you stay on schedule and apply an adequate amount of pressure for you to stay on track.
  • Celebrate the small victories. Small progress is progress and you should reward yourself for the work you have done.  It will motivate you to keep going.
  • Surround yourself with finishers.  The company you keep influences your decisions.  Connect yourself with people who are known to complete tasks and reach goals.  Their finishing spirits will transfer to you.
  • Work smart.  Busy work is not always the best work.  Make sure the work you are doing is the most efficient way to spend your time reaching your goals.
  • Collaborate when possible.  There may be others working towards similar goals or working towards goals that compliment your goals.  Working together with others will lighten your load and may give you insight on better solutions.
  • Learn from those who have accomplished similar goals.  Whether its through a mentor, an advisor or through literature written by a successful person, study the strategies of others who have been down the path you are going.  They can help guide your direction and help you avoid the mistakes they may have made.
  • Delegate tasks that take you away from your focus.  When you are tackling a huge goal there may be tasks that need to be completed that you are not proficient in completing. Share those tasks with people who are skilled in those areas.  This will free up your time to focus on your mission.
  • Think outside the box.  You may experience road blocks while traveling towards completing your mission.  As obstacles approach spend time developing alternative routes to your destination.  There is usually more than one way to get there.
  • Never give up. You have a clear goal to reach.  You have decided to begin the path to get there.  You may experience unexpected setbacks or losses on the way.  The only way to reach your destination is to never give up.  As long as you are making progress you are continuing to get closer to the finish.
