My wife asked me, as she often does, "What are you doing?"
"Trying to get organized," I replied.
"That's your motto", she said.
"No, that's my mantra."
What's the difference?
But then I had a small insight. Maybe getting organized is not a
destination, but a journey?
Maybe it is not a goal, but a process?
The strategy is to only set achievable goals.
Maybe "getting organized" is not one of them.
This morning I used a related strategy - set small goals.
I was doing my exercises. I set my goal for 20 reps.
When I finished the 20 reps, I said, I can do six
more. And I did, for a total of 26 reps.
But I think if I had set my initial goal for 26 reps, I likely could not have done it.
Then that would've been demoralizing, which I do not need.
This way,if I'd only been able to do 20, that would have been a success.
I try to set small achievable goals.
Then if I overachieve, that's all to the good.
Maybe goals help us stay focused?
