Here’s the thing about goals and goal setting: You can be successful at achieving your goals and you can also crash and burn at goal setting in tremendous ways. Whether you are a rockstar with goal setting or struggling to keep up with the ones you’ve created, it’s important to remember two things:
- Life happens: Even with the best-laid plans, life is bound to happen and throw a wrench into them.
- Boundaries make a huge difference: Once I started to have boundaries, I started to have goals.
At the start of 2019, I began setting standards for myself and soon thereafter the year came into focus. I’ve been writing more, speaking at events more often, and developing new areas of my business.
But yet, I’ve been missing some goals because I’m human.
In a recent episode of Let’s Fix Work, I share some of my own insights and lessons about goal setting. Because let’s face it, even when you create rock-solid systems or amazing goal setting plans, life happens.
In the same episode, I also share my experience working with a business coach and how in doing so, it has helped me put my goals into focus and even be accountable, even when my follow through is less than stellar.
If you want to hear about my successes and failures with goal setting, the importance of putting yourself first, and making an effort to at least try to attain a specific goal, then listen to this episode of Let’s Fix Work.
