Have you ever set a goal, actively pursued it, and then totally fell out of love with it? I have. And I talk about it in this week’s goal setting tip.
It all started about a month ago when Earl and I started a 90-day plank challenge…
I don’t know why we sometimes pick goals or challenges that aren’t a good fit for us. Sometimes we can rise above the struggles and accomplish great results. Other times, like with this plank challenge, we lose our drive to succeed. The goal ends up working against us.
In those cases, making a logical choice to stop attempting it may make the most sense. It may actually be our best course of action!
If this episode inspired you to put a bit more effort into one of your goals, or allowed you to abandon one (guilt free), feel free to drop a tip in my Patreon Tip Jar. I appreciate your support and encouragement!

Don’t you hate it when life gets in the way of achieving your goals? Or I suppose the better question to ask is this… “Don’t you hate it when you LET life get in the way of achieving your goals?”
In this week’s goal setting tip, I share a home maintenance situation (the subject line give you a clue as to what it is) that is trying to steal my attention… it’s trying to divert my focus from what I planned to accomplish today.
What do you do when life throws distractions at you?
Do you let them completely derail your goal achieving progress?
Do you close the closet door on them so you can focus on something else?
Or perhaps you’re like me and you keep ignoring the situation until you finally HAVE to deal with it.
I’d love to know how you’d handle similar situations.
A backhanded compliment… unfair criticism… we’ve all experienced them. They don’t leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, do they? Instead they leave us feeling worse than if nothing had been said at all.
In this week’s episode I share my extremely frustrating and disheartening workplace environment that frequently explodes with unfair criticism and backhanded compliments. This practice wreaks havoc on my morale and my level of “give a darn.”
The most frustrating thing is that is doesn’t have to be this way!
As promised, here are links to some articles with more tips on how to deal with unfair criticism:
