Step one: look at the big picture, define your mission, set your goals and values.
Step two: organise the process, establish standards of performance and ways of achieving personal excellence. Focus, eliminate distractions, and any form of destructive elements.
Step three: gain support, and the drive to succeed (from within, or a significant other when applicable)
Step four: launch, recap, and add on to your mission, changing standards to accommodate change. Trial and error basically.
One last thought: " our behaviour is a result of our decisions not our conditions"
- to taking charge, and making "change" happen xx
