4. Start At The End And Aim High!
Whenever you fantasize about your dreams, the picture that always comes to your mind is the peak of that dream. This is so because it is where you want to be, but you know very well that you can only get there after so many things have been put in place and after series and series of hard work in the direction of that dream. How about starting at that peak and working your way backwards creating all the necessary elements as you go by. Start with where you want to end up, that is your goal. Not possible? Let me give you an instance:
Before architects begin building a house, they know what the completed version will look like. They have a blueprint and they know that each step is necessary to get to the next one; the excavation must be complete before the framing begins etc.
To help you get this right, ask yourself these questions before you kick start the dream: What is my purpose? what are the needs of the persons that would be the end users of what am creating? What do they already have? What method should I use or which steps do I take?
When you can answer these questions correctly, you’d have gotten a good idea of the possible end of the journey. Decide whether you want to be the best, the fastest, the cheapest, the biggest – WHATEVER. Aim for the ultimate and work backwards to develop the steps you need to achieve it.
