Goal Setting Isn’t Enough

I feel lost. It’s raining and the prophetic fallacy is thick in the air. Gloomier than the room I am sat in is my mood. Motivation is gone and I keep catching myself down the Youtube rabbit hole. Only days ago I was so fired up. I had set my goals and I knew exactly where I wanted to be in in the next year or two. I had my GOALS.

No I didn’t.

I had some DREAMS.

The difference between the two is that a dream is just an idea, whereas a goal has a plan.

The mistake I had made was to set my goal but not put a concrete plan in place for how I was going to get there. Now the initial motivation was wearing thin and I had to use energy choosing what to do next.

You have to find the balance between too much planning (analysis paralysis) and not enough planning (dreaming).

What to do:

  1. Set your goals.
  2. Plan how you are going to get there.
  3. Start DOING.
