Let’s go back to the earlier example. So, you want to become a globally recognised bestselling author, but you haven’t put a single word to paper. What does positioning yourself 1 cm ahead look like? When friends and family ask what you’ve been up to lately, you could add “I’m currently thinking about writing a book” to your response. You could put posts out on social media, or join an online community of writers, and say something similar. The 1 cm rule has accountability built in because you can only say that you’re ‘thinking’ about it for so long, or tell the same people several times, before you get bored of hearing yourself and you have to do something to move it on!
