Today I’m thankful for goal setting.
A new year, time for new goals or a renewed effort to reaching old goals. Yup, I’m a little late to the party on this one… As crazy busy as life has been I almost made the mistake of not setting my goals because I was too busy. Special thanks to Norm for pushing this, as frustrated as I can sometimes be with having stuff added to my plate, this was an incredibly helpful assignment!
It’s crazy to see the difference in thought process when I decide to act on life as opposed to letting it impose its will on me. When I take the time to decide on the destination I know that I can make the road map to get there. Without the destination in mind I have still enjoy the ride, but I end up driving on random country roads that bring me nowhere, kind of like a treadmill.
When life is busy it’s easy to hit the cruise control and go where I go, but I only have so much time on this earth and there’s a shit ton of stuff I want to experience. If I want to get as much done as possible I need to take a deep breath, step out of the whirlwind, and set my goals… Which I’ve just done for the year.
Watch out friends, readers and fellow dreamers, you might see some messages, emails, and calls seemingly out of the blue to get dates on the calendar, to get asked for advice, and to get asked to join me for an adventure or two.
