Goals… like a Grain of Rice…
So it’s 4 weeks today until we head over to Las Vegas for another awesome Event. I get to catch up with all the amazing people I work with, some of which have become my best friends & like family to me. I get excited about these events because we get to learn so many new things, meet new people, contribute to local communities & hang out in gorgeous locations all over the world. Pretty cool huh?! It really is life changing stuff. BUT I have some pretty big goals to achieve before I go, in 4 weeks. Actually they’re not “pretty big goals”, they’re BIG. BIG BIG BIG. Massive goals. Do-able, but massive. And I can achieve them. Even though they are things I’ve NEVER done before, I know I can do it. But it is a bit scary when I start the 4 week countdown – the finish line is nearly in sight. So, I decided to think differently about my goals. Rather than waking up each day – of course excited about another day working towards my goals, but slightly fearful of them, I think of my goals as being tiny, in comparison to the size of the world, or the span of my whole life. So they’re really tiny – like the head of a pin. Or at the biggest – they’re written on a grain of rice – you know like you see at the markets where you can get an old Chinese guy to write your name on a grain of rice. Anyway, you get the idea – I can now balance them on the tip of my finger. So, this makes me feel more powerful, and that I am SO much more capable of achieving these goals because really they’re not that massive! “Massive” to me feels like it has a whole lot of haaaaaaaaaaard work attached to it, and I’m not keen on that. I love working my backside off (literally) but I don’t want it to be “hard” work. So I keep it fun, keep applying myself & see my goals as VERY achievable, now that I am so much bigger than them.
So the countdown is on, this is where the magic happens, in the last 4 weeks (of a 12 week action plan I might add). I’m excited to celebrate at the end!
Share with me what tactics you use to achieve your goals in the last leg of the race, or how you avoid the fear of a looming deadline. I love to hear it!
