If you recently set some goals you’re probably busy trying to do them. If you set a whole bunch of goals and then started trying to work on all of them, you might be starting to feel like you’re being pulled in a bunch of different directions at once. At some point you’ll get overloaded and want to give up on all of them.
A long list of non-complementary goals like: start a new business selling handmade furniture, write a book, lose 10 pounds, learn to speak French, and plant a vegetable garden, is too much. It’s too diverse. Each individual goal requires so much dedicated time and mental energy it’s nearly impossible to focus on and accomplish all of those goals at once.
Protect your ego and build your confidence by choosing one primary goal to work on first. Yes, just one. Once you’re regularly meeting your MSP (minimum standard of performance) and hitting your milestones then you can consider layering on a second goal.
Some of your goals might be complementary. For example, run a 5k and lose 10 pounds or catch up on bookkeeping and file paperwork. Those go together and one supports the other. If some of your goals are complementary goals it would be reasonable to work on both of those goals at the same time.
If you’re struggling to narrow down your goals and choose just one, let’s chat. I love this stuff.
Enjoy the journey.
