An ambitious program of personal development can sometimes seem overwhelming if we focus only on its totality. It just seems too challenging.

Yet, in trying to reach our full potential in personal growth and self-improvement, we can achieve significant long-term objectives by doing something limited, yet achievable, each day.

It’s what personal growth expert Seth Godin calls the drip-drip-drip approach to goal realization.

Virtually any long-term personal improvement objective can be broken down into small repeatable or small unique one-off steps.

It’s the way, for, example, that many successful writers approach their work.

By writing 200 words every day for a year, we would have 73,000 words at the end of the year – an intermediate length novel.

Or write 100 words a day and you have a novella of 36,500 words.

We get more done by actually doing something small every day instead of day-dreaming about something big.
