Goals are simply a set of instructions to your brain on what to look and listen for as you move through your day. The problem is that your big goals are too ambiguous for your brain to make connections to day in and day out.
Instead, break it down for your brain. What’s the next milestone on the journey towards your big goals? Now what’s the biggest problem you have to solve or obstacle you have to overcome to get there? What do you need to learn, who do you need to meet, what resource do you need to acquire?
Feed the answers to those questions to your brain, and it will find you the answers throughout your day. You will learn that your brain has a search capability that is better than Google’s, but you have to input the right search criteria. The better your search terms, the better your search results – just like Google.
Create a new search query every day; you’ll be surprised at the results.
