When I made my goals at the beginning of the year, I was very pumped and knew I would rock this year out. By February, I was like "man, the year is flying by but I am still about to take this year by storm". It is now April, and I am looking around like a fool. I am absolutely not where I need to be in terms of working on my year goals. It is so darn easy to get distracted and off focus. It is even easier to lose sight of the bigger picture. A revelation hit me the other day. I am so hard on myself for not meeting these goals and focusing on the small stuff that I don't accomplish what I want to accomplish AND I am not taking time to enjoy life. Every weekend I make these plans that are centered towards my goals and I don't make time for anything else. I am definitely not growing that way, and I am not doing myself or anyone else a favor when I'm in my feelings from being over stimulated. Lesson: even if I am spending a day doing nothing, that is OK--ONCE IN A WHILE. These days are needed every once in a while and are necessary to keep me refreshed and pumped but then it is back to work. This week I am examining my goals, adjusting my strategy and moving forward. I encourage everyone to do the same because there are many different routes to accomplishing a goal and that route may change during the process. Goals are like children; they need to be nourished with positivity, brought up with consistency and be checked on all the time.
Do you know where you goals are?
