Visualise - or even better write down - the steps needed to achieve your goal. Be it closing a deal, getting a promotion, starting your business or anythihng else.
Define the moves required to reach each step.
Life is messy though or as the saying goes "Life is what happens to you while you’re making other plans."
So every step might be different than the originally envisioned step.
At each step, revise the plan, path and moves needed for the next step - and the steps ahead.
Planning is important as it enables you to make moves that will have an impact further steps down the line.
