Step 1. Stop talking
I know it’s almost impossible to keep your big ideas to yourself, but that’s a necessary evil. The less people know about your intentions, the easier it will be to actually start doing something in that direction.
Step 2. Start planning
And by planning, I mean create a step-by-step process plan. At first, you can write down the bullet points in an app like Evernote. This can help you make up your mind on what needs to be done and leave the unnecessary tasks out of the focus.
Step 3. Set milestones
When you have the full picture, you can find yourself a process or project management tool that will help you to structure the process in general. Process and project management tools such as Casual for small and mid-sized projects or Microsoft Planner for the big ones could be used for the matter.
Step 4. Start doing
And even when you have everything planned and set up, there’s an effort you need to put in the actual job. Take it slowly, one step at a time; build up the workload and keep up the good work. You may be amazed how growth can be better when you are not trying to do everything at once, in one gulp.
Step 5. Feel the pace and keep it up!
It seems like the last step, the end of the story, but it’s actually just the beginning of a long journey.
