You did set some goals right? Have you taken a look at them since you last wrote them down?
Here’s the thing: making goals is excellent. KEEPING and ACHIEVING goals is much better. So come on, go find those goals you set and take a look. Don’t worry, I’ll wait ….
Okay. Back yet?
It shouldn’t have been too difficult for you to find those goals. Ideally, they should be somewhere you can see them regularly. Well, how have you been doing so far? Not so hot? Do you feel like you’ve fallen off the wagon? Have you already resolved to stick to goals next year … or maybe when it’s easier? Or maybe, like me, some goals you’ve been doing well on, while others have languished.
Here’s the thing: it’s a new month. Tomorrow is a new day. You can start over whenever you feel like.
“Stumbling is not falling.” – Portuguese Proverb
So. 1/6 through the year. Look over your goals. Is that still the direction you want to head? By all means, abandon those which really don’t work – but don’t do it hastily. Instead, give it another try. Stick to it. You can do it – I know you will. And then, when you’ve accomplished these, you get to make NEW goals next year, and wouldn’t that be nice instead of the same ones over and over?
How do you stick to your goals? Or conversely, what makes you slip-up?
Good luck. Good for you to keep trying. And thanks for reading.
