But as amazing as it is to be such an accomplished list maker and deadline creator, I've come to realise that less really can be more when it comes to setting worthwhile goals and actually getting them.
So in saying that, here's a few simple keys I've learnt as a life-long #goaly to set them and get them with more success and less stress, self-sabotage and stalling:
Go deep into the why and into picturing how the goal looks and feels to help it stick in your soul!
"We will always do more to achieve things that are deeply meaningful to us. When those meanings involve things like family, freedom, security, country and love, we'll go out of our way to see things through. We won't throw in that proverbial towel and give up after we hit a few stumbling blocks or fail repeatedly."
The short term goals all add up to a long term goal, so enjoy the journey on the way by identifying the short and making a habits of reaching them in consistent hits like every day or every week. They are the habits that compound into greatness. And keep your head in the game. Stay focused on you and your journey without killing productivity by comparison disguised as 'inspiration!'
“Isn't it time to stop wishing, complaining, making excuses and pointing finger? Your destiny calls for you to give your dream the actions that it desperately needs. Dig deep to discover your hidden abilities and strength to always persevere.”
It's cool to keep raising the bar on your goals, and often it's a natural occurrence as momentum picks up, just be sure to fully acknowledge (deeply) each new level. This will likely keep you fulfilled enough and hungry enough to enjoy the process with perspective and not loose your mind along the way! Lowering the bar shouldn't be an option if you've GONE DEEP and GONE LONG btw, so every piece plays an important part.
“The greater danger for most of us isn’t that our aim is too high and miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it."
What are your goals right now? Do they need a reset, a boost, or do you need to start celebrating the steps you've done so far to achieve them?
Share them below and let's cheer each other on!
