I agree smaller goals are important and make the proposition more feasible. I also like the FRED idea — could work well. I think there are two things are at work that make a small goal work:

  1. You can’t climb a mountain in one day -> it take days so you have to define how much you climb in one day

Now I’ve learnt that I need to write every day. One thing I’ve found works well is reading and engaging with other people’s stories here on Medium every day rather than writing a new story myself every day. Don’t get me wrong publishing my own stories is good but I don’t think it’s needed every day.

This way works since I learn something new and I don’t always have the time to write a piece that requires research. However I did challenge myself to write a piece each week = 52 articles a year to submit for one of the publications I write.
