Life gets in the way, time gets away from you, your plate is already full, and there’s simply not a single spare minute in the day to be concerned about your goals.
That’s how goals get abandoned like yesterday’s fad.
The quality of your life is simply too important to dismiss to being “too busy.” When you become aware that your goals have quietly been pushed to the side, it’s important to refocus as soon as it comes into your awareness.
Achieving your goals is much like being on a diet. You know what you should be doing, but you don’t always do it. You should be exercising and eating healthy food. Instead you slept in, skipped the gym and now you’re eating ice cream.
Your goals are achieved in the same manner: doing what you should be doing, even if you don’t feel like it. You should be taking daily steps that bring you closer to the realization of your goals and if you’re doing anything else, you’re spinning your wheels.
It’s like skipping the gym and shoving ice cream into your mouth. It negates all the hard work you took up until that point. Sure you can help reverse it, but it’s going to take longer – and you have to work harder.
Don’t make it harder than it needs to be. Staying focused on doing the highest pay-off activities that have the highest probability of you achieving your goals is critical to your success. It ensures you make progress toward what is most important to you.
There will probably always be a gap between where you are now and where you want to be no matter where you are in life. That’s part of your growth and personal improvement.
