Review 2019 Today!

This is a repost from January 2013. I just tweaked it slightly.

All the personal growth experts advise people to set aside time during the last week of the December and do a review of the year.  During this year-end review, you look to see which goals were reached and which were not, which strategies or ideas worked for you and which did not, you recall milestones and generally reflect on your life.  The review gives you more solid directions, things to keep doing, for the upcoming year so you can live a more purposeful and happy life.

I wholeheartedly agree with doing a review, but I have a problem.  Continue reading “Review 2019 Today!”

Smell the Roses

Last month I set a huge business goal, and since I was very serious, I enlisted the help accountability partners (yes, I got two). I reached that goal this week. But to my surprise I wasn’t excited.

It Ain’t All About Achieving The Goal

Set a personal goal, write it down, break down the goal into do-able steps, add a completion date and you will achieve it.  You will live happily ever after!  Sound familiar?  It should.  We’ve all heard this at one time or another.  And since I wanted to live happily ever after, I went through the process of writing down goals with a completion date.  Some I accomplished and some I didn’t.  For the goals I didn’t accomplish, I would do the process again….and again…and again.   But when I saw I wasn’t accomplishing a goal again and again, I stopped writing it down, and as you expect, the goal got lost in life.  To me, a goal was the “be all and the end all”.  If I wasn’t “being all” then why bother.  I lived like this for years.

What I didn’t realize is, although achieving a goal is important, there is more going on than meets the eye.  Continue reading “It Ain’t All About Achieving The Goal”
