Take It One Step at a Time
Now that you are in the "real world," you may have dozens of ideas of what you want to do with your life including a makeover of how you look, where you live, the dynamics of your relationships, etc. But don't try to tackle everything at once. The results would be similar to a crash diet where you cut out major food categories simultaneously: system shutdown. Think about your goals and put them into categories of what you can do right now, what can be accomplished in the short term, and what should be achieved far into the future. I call these 3-foot leaps, 10-foot leaps, and long-term goals. Not only will planning your steps allow you to see what you want and where you are headed, completing the 3-foot and 10-foot leaps will give you an instant feeling of accomplishment.
