Creating a clear plan of action is key to your success. It should include short-term, mid-term and long-term goals. But, Why not focus on one goal at a time?

If that works for you, great. I find that it’s easier to stay motivated if I diversify my projects. I tend to be most productive when I set aside time for goals with varying timeframes for completion.
