Michelango said, “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
When you set your goals, do you aim so that you are guaranteed to achieve them? If you do, I have a question for you… where’s the fun in that? 🙂
Goal setting should be scary and exciting. It should make your heart race and your inner voice scream for you to slow down, take a breath, be “realistic!”
In this week’s goal setting tip, I encourage you to dream big AND support the people around you who dare to dream big.

It happens to all of us.
We expect to do something, and then plans change. When this happens, sometimes a large block of time is freed up.
Do you take full advantage of these situations?
Do you use the time to relax with a good book outdoors? Do you work on a long neglected project? Do you focus on tasks that have been put off for too long at home?
In this week’s goal setting tip video, I encourage you to take advantage of these unexpected blocks of time, by always be prepared to take advantage of them!
What do you do with unexpected blocks of free time? Please share your tips for using this time wisely in the comments below.

Does this sound like you?
You leave work and realize you need to stop at the grocery store for some cat food. You arrive home and realize you also needed (desperately needed) toilet paper.
So out you go again. This time you head to the department store where you purchase other items, too.
The next day you leave work and realize you need to swing by the ATM machine because you forgot to get some extra cash when you were at the grocery store OR the department store.
Each of these errands eats up valuable time in your day.
This week’s goal setting tip addresses the benefits of batching like errands together to free up precious time in your day.

Setting goals is easy.
You determine a change you want to see in your life and you declare it a goal.
Achieving that goal is not always easy.
There are many factors that help and hinder your progress toward achieving your goals. One of the best ways to help you achieve that goal is to have a strong motivational “why.”
In this week’s goal setting tip, I talk about a recent goal I achieved, but then had difficulty maintaining. I finally realized that the “why” that helped me focus on this goal, no longer applied.
To remain focused, I needed to find another, equally motivating, “why.”
What’s your goal, and what’s your “why”? Is your motivation strong enough to help you resist temptation? Is it powerful enough to silence your critics (internal and external)?

You would think I’d know better by now.
After all, I have been setting and achieving goals for many decades.
But some days, I still don’t get it right. 🙂
In this week’s goal setting tip, I am once again focusing on the plank challenge that Earl and I started together. I have learned so much from this challenge about goal achieving!
Here are links to the other two videos I did based on the plank challenge.
The saga begins…
