Funny enough, I looked back at those goals this week and if I haven’t accomplished them, I’m in the process. I don’t know if it was the physical act of writing down the goals that made me take the leap, or the fact that I wrote them down and felt so silly that I was waiting to do them. Nonetheless, here I am. Goals achieved and steps being taken to achieve them.
In the back of my mind did I know I wanted to do these things? Yes, which is why I wrote them down…duh. Was writing them down the act of me finally facing the facts that I should get started? Absolutely! Life can get mundane, and I KNOW we all give excuses as to why we can’t get something done, or how we don’t have time for something, but I can wholeheartedly say that you can make time.
Perhaps we hide from the goals we want to achieve because we know that it’s extra work, or it’s going to take up that much more time, or ugh, who needs something else on their plate. But I’m here to say DIVE IN. There is truly no time but the present, and if you fail, at least you tried. There’s one quote that I love by Robert F. Kennedy that says:
“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly”
Even if your “Master Plan” doesn’t go accordingly, which, come on, it never does, that’s certainly no reason not to try! Set fun goals, small goals. Set big goals. Something as small as setting a goal to send a card to your best friend on her graduation day. Goals that make an impact, like sending that note to say a genuine Congratulations to a colleague who just landed a well deserved promotion, will go the distance. These small goals go a long way and set you up to crush the bigger and more intense goals you have for yourself! You will start to realize that just diving in and doing these things will make your life that much more WELLNESS rounded!
