“A goal without a wish is just a plan”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
What are your goals this week? How will you know when you’ve achieved them and how will they change your life? What might get in the way and how will you feel when you’ve attained them?
How Do You Reach Your Goals?
No matter how big or small your goals might be, their value is determined by YOU! Set achievable goals which make you feel good and anticipate obstacles so nothing gets in the way. Write them down and visualise how good you’ll feel after traversing from A to B. Then plan a treat to celebrate attaining them
A Week Of Firsts
The last few days have been a week of firsts for me, seeing me achieve goals which may be run of the mill for others but mean something to me. They are, in no particular order:
1) Cooking: my first roast chicken with homemade stuffing and bread sauce (minus the usual culinary disaster). It was lovely to pleasantly surprise my gifted culinary chum, Maudie and my increasingly cynical boyfriend;
2) Driving: said cynic’s big white van without crashing it. Last time there were a couple of near misses, ending in tears in more ways than one; and
3) Skiing: the Vallée blanche without falling down a crevasse. My lack of progress skiing this season made me all the more determined to achieve something I’d be proud of. In the first picture I’d just asked Mowgli if the transceiver that he’d strapped to my torso was in case I fell down a crevasse. ‘No’, he replied. ‘Phew’, I thought. ‘It’s in case there’s an avalanche’. Comforting words.
How Do You Apply This In Your Daily Life?
Commit to your goals this week and don’t let anything or anyone get in the way.
