“Your goal should be out of reach but not out of sight.”
What are your goals for this coming year? Are they written down? Have you created a constant and daily reminder that helps you lift your gaze from the grindstone of effort to ensure that you remember why you are doing the work the in the first place?
It’s okay if the goal scares you and you don’t know precisely how you will get there. However, when going gets tough, and it will, you must have the intestinal fortitude to keep going and slog through the efforts that might be necessary for your goal to become a reality.
How can you possibly motivate yourself to do the hard work if you can’t remember where you are going and why it matters in the first place?
