How to fail at achieving long-term goals

Don’t take the first step.

Say yes to every opportunity.

Keep it to yourself.

Fail to identify your “Why” (then, set the wrong goal)

Don’t take the second step.

Don’t establish daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly routines.

Heed the words of friends and family who love you dearly and don’t want to see you fail.

Ignore the words of uninvested people who have “been there, done that.”

Don’t take the twenty-seventh step. (you get the idea)

Don’t ask for favors.

Beat yourself up when you hit a slump.

Wait for the perfect time.
