Step 3: Create a Plan
Design a plan of action that encompasses the necessary steps toward achieving your goals. It should detail what needs to be done, who or what can help, and timelines for completion.
Step 4: Develop Skills or Knowledge
Identify any gaps in knowledge or skills that may hinder your progress towards the goal. Invest time and resources in personal development, further education or self-learning.

Staying consistent and maintaining self-discipline is one of the keys to ensuring you stay on track. Make a habit of reviewing your progress regularly.
