It’s easy to get lost in the rhetoric of goal setting. You can create the vision board, write out the draft, then get lost in the back and for of doing the work.
Usually the doing part, or the getting started part, is the most difficult task, but the place many people miss the mark rests in their attitude about their work and their accomplishments.
Too often, we see the target, and we are willing to take the shot. We take the shot, and we get past the start-up phase, and then we hit a wall. We get lost in the day to day, the too fast, the too much, the too many lateral movements, then we lose focus in the madness.
Take aim gracefully at your own rate. Complete the small steps with singular focus and graceful intent. The other side, the madness and chaos, leaks and you may be left with a lot less than you originally intended.
Grab your pen and draft pages of nonsense today. Read it tomorrow. See if you find anything worth working on.
