Goal Setting

📚I’m reading a book called Finish by Jon Acuff and something really stuck out to me that I wanted to share with you!

👆🏼We set goals for ourselves like I want to lose 10 pounds this month, or I want to write a blog post that is 300 words long 5 days a week, or I want to run a 5K next month!

❓So what happens when we don’t accomplish those goals? When you only lose 7 pounds, or you wrote 2 short blog posts this week, or you ran 1/2 of a mile? You immediately think that you have failed and from here on out you don’t even try to accomplish any of those things!

👉🏼But what if instead we set smaller goals that were more attainable? Don’t you think that if we set smaller goals that we would accomplish them more often? And if we accomplish those goals and set new goals and then we accomplish those goals and we keep repeating that process, then in the end wouldn’t we be crushing way more goals? We would be so much farther ahead by setting smaller goals than if we set big goals that we “failed” at so we just quit!!

👊🏼This just really resonated with me so I wanted to share it with you! Do with it what you wish but get out there and set some small goals! 😃

🎉And as always, thanks for reading my blog! I hope today has an amazing you 😃
