Life always does that, doesn’t it?
A few years ago, I was training to run a marathon. Just a few weeks before the race, I flew to an event and had some luggage fall right on my head. As you can probably guess, I walked away with a pretty bad concussion.
That’s why it’s important to adjust your goals to the season you’re in. When life throws us curve balls, we must learn to adapt. And we do that by reflecting on what’s working—and what’s not—in light of the season we’re in.
Consider the season you’re inSet goals that go with the flow, not against it.
Create strong goalsBe specific. Make them measurable, and set a time frame. For example: I will lose 20 pounds by August 30. Or, I will save $2,000 for Disney World by April 1.
Write them down on paperWriting down your goals can be the difference between making your dream a reality and staying stuck in a place you hate.
Some seasons are predictable, but others aren’t. The good news is short-term goals give you the freedom to adjust when unpredictable seasons come!
