While mentoring young entrepreneurs and people in general, many of them tell me: I don’t know what to do.
They don’t really know what direction should they go, what should they start doing, what should they stop doing.
And I more or less understand. With so many options, so much information and so much pressure, it is not easy to make that choice.
Many people don’t know what to do, but most of them know what they want to have or who they want to be. And this is where I would start. With the end in mind as would Stephen Covey say.
Think about who you want to be or what you want to have (or both) 10 years from now.
Imagine it to the very detail, the more details the better. Create that picture of you and what you have in your mind.
Now, put it down to paper. Write it all down.
Once you have it all written down, ask yourself for every single item this question:
What do I need to do to get there?
What do I need to do today, tomorrow, next week, next month… to get there?
This should tell you what to do.
So the only thing left to do is make a plan and do it.
