Here is the sheet that helped Jane and Deirdre breakdown problems in order to set goals more effectively.
|1||Identify the problem
Break it down into smaller steps
Write down as many ideas as you can think of – even if they seem silly
Think about possible barriers
Choose one of your ideas that looks more likely to work
Plan out step-by-step what you need to do

Take the first step
Review how it went
