Goals, Goals, Goals

Ah, goal setting. It’s like the New Year’s resolutions of everyday life – we set these lofty aspirations for ourselves, only to abandon them a few weeks later when we realize how hard they are.

But what if we approached goal setting a little differently? What if instead of making grand, sweeping statements, we set small, achievable goals that actually felt doable?

I know, I know – it’s not as sexy as saying we’re going to climb Mount Everest or become a millionaire overnight. But the truth is, setting small, achievable goals is waaaaaay more effective.

Think about it – when we set huge, intimidating goals, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged (and quit). We don’t even know where to start, let alone how to achieve them. But when we set small, bite-sized goals, we can actually see progress and build some momentum.

Plus, setting small goals means we’re more likely to stick with them. We’re not trying to do everything all at once – we’re focusing on one thing at a time, and building from there. A one step at a time sort of thing.

And here’s the best part – when we achieve one small goal, it gives us the confidence to tackle the next one, and so on. We start to see that we’re capable of more than we thought, and that’s an incredibly empowering feeling.

So the next time you’re setting goals for yourself, try starting small. Maybe it’s something as simple as going for a walk every day, or reading for 20 minutes before bed. Whatever it is, make it achievable, and celebrate when you hit that goal. I’m a big fan of celebrating every win, however small.

Trust me – you’ll be amazed at how much progress you can make when you break things down into smaller pieces. And who knows – maybe one day you will climb Mount Everest or become a millionaire overnight. But for now, let’s focus on the small wins, and build from there.
