Many times people start in a program, training, or business, and after several days, they get lost in them and end up dying out or quitting. So in order to avoid that, you have to take the course or set actions at a rate you can handle, and actually stop after what you committed to and get ready for tomorrows tasks.

Don't overload out of greed or ambition or zeal to get started. Take your time like a sound investment. Slow and steady wins the race, quick yet consistent is the ace.

Well said, I set myself a simple aim of completing one lesson (or two) each day and following the lesson objectives.

All about small wins, everyday.

You bet, sounds like winning each quarter... you're bound to win the game.

A great point, I know more than a few people who start something and burn out in the first few days because of overload. It could be called stopping to smell the flowers every so often. But as you said setting realistic goals on a day by day basis works best.

Good point, yes, there is no need to rush, learning is not a race.

Everyone says "set goals" but the problem is people set unrealistic ones or ones that are just too big to accomplish, which leads to getting overwhelmed in the details. Break those bigger goals up, into smaller chunks and they'll become daily tasks. You know the old saying "baby steps".

I do this all the time - get overwhelmed. I love gathering information and pulling it into the big picture but often get distracted by the new "shiny thing". I find the tick boxes on the WA course a big help. If you lie by ticking them when you have completed the tasks you are only harming yourself. I often race ahead to find out what's coming up next but always end up going back to where I have yet to complete something because the tick box is not yet filled. When you keep ending back at the same spot you know it's time to actually DO something

Timshazz, you're so right. I use to do that too... it is the biggest waste of time. The tick boxes are great helps.

Yes, we do need to give ourselves a break once in a while. The mind and body needs to have time for work and a time for relaxation.
