There's good evidence that people who write down their goals are much more likely to achieve them.  It's really easy to say "I'm going to lose weight" or " I am going to start exercising more" or "I'm going to get myself qualified" ....but saying is easy and doing is something else.
If you take the time to set yourself some "SMART" goals (you know the ones? Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time limited...) and you write them down, then you have taken the first step in achieving those goals.
And little steps are good - as long as they are in the right direction.  So you want to get qualified? The first step might be researching what and where - and finding out when the course starts, and what it costs.  The beginnings of a plan that you can work on is there.
You know the saying....the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step....
