This is the sixth post in our 9-part series about what lessons Looney Toons can teach you to lead a happier, more fulfilled life. View the introductory post- and first lesson- post here.
All action must be confined to the natural environment of the two characters – the Southwest American Desert.
There are a couple of principles here…
One is that you must take action if you expect to be successful. Action is often more important than knowledge, experience, and even passion. Going out and doing it sets you on the path to success.
The other principle is that you need to have a plan to operate out of. Just like our two characters are confined to a portion of the map, you also need a map to get where you want to go. A plan is a map. It tells you how to get from point A to point B.
So take out a piece of paper or fire up your word processor and write down all the steps you think you’ll need to take in order to get your goal. If you don’t know all the steps, at least write down some that you do know. If you don’t know any of the steps, then find someone who has achieved s similar goal to yours, and find out what steps they took to be successful. That will give you a starting point, if not for a whole plan. Do this now – make your plan!
