working backwards

You know where you want to go but you don’t know how to get there.

You know what result you want to achieve but not what it will take.

Much as sometimes we like to think otherwise, we are not completely unique. We are very rarely the first to try and do something or the first person to want to create a certain result.

So the easiest way to find out how it’s done?

Work backwards.

Find someone who’s already done it and ask them. Find someone who’s already where you want to be and ask how they got there.

Keep working backwards until you have something you can act on immediately.

Then you’re away.
