A few years ago, my friends and I started writing our yearly goals and somehow it became a tradition. In those years that we wrote our goals some of it was achieved and most weren’t, but we never stopped the tradition. We just kept on going until we actually achieved even the ‘backlog’ goals that we had from the previous years.
Looking into our 2018 goals, I feel like I could do so much more because I’m not actually hitting the goals just yet. My progress has been slow for the most part but I’m determined to get to the bottom of the problem why I’m not achieving them and what I can do to solve it.
Am I having goals that are too unrealistic that’s why I’m feeling underachieving? Maybe the question should be: “Why am I compelled to reach unrealistically high goals at all? Goals are at times unrealistic. But, if goals are meant to be easy, why should it be called goals at all? Calling it a list, like a to-do list is more fitting.
So, how do you achieve your unrealistic goals?
Set your goals first (no matter how unrealistic they are)
Align your goals with your reality
… BUT, if your goals truly matter, you’ll do everything to achieve them
