People join this community for a lot of different reasons. Regardless if yours is a painful break-up, to get more high-quality women in your life, or simply a desire to have more sex, you should have a goal and purpose with this journey. Some people have a hard time explaining their goals... they aren't really sure why they are doing this or at least they can't verbalize it. Others have it all figured out and blatantly state: "I'm going to be the best pickup artist ever!"
While it's certainly something positive to have your mind set on a goal, it's just not achievable unless you have a structured way to get there. When I ask these people how they will get there most of them have no clue. Needless to say, though, having no goals at all is even worse.
It's important to have long term goals like the one above, but it's equally important to have short term goals that are achievable in the near future. This will not only help you get better quicker, but also give you a confidence boost when you are able to see how much progress you've made over a set amount of time. Finally, it also helps you figure out what your sticking points are and how you are going to get rid of them.
Next, you are going to write down all of the goals that you want to achieve in your game. Start off with the long term and work your way down until you have a list of things you can do today to help you achieve the long term goals you've set up for yourself. This list could look something like:
Now you are on the road to achieving your long term goals.
