It is that time of year again! This is the time of year, that we make New Year’s Resolutions.
You probably have been watching others all year long thinking I wish I was like them… skinnier, buffer, more productive, happier, funnier, smarter, and the list goes on…
Did you know that the statistics report that only about 8% of goals are usually met? But not you… because you made SMART goals…right?
- I will lose xx pounds by xx/xx/xx
- I will blog x days a week for x amount of time
- I will be more productive by doing x every day/week
- I will meditate for x minutes every day
- I will, I will, I will…. I promise, maybe
If you ‘resolve’, you are sending a negative message to yourself…
- I eat too much
- I watch too much TV
- I am not organized
If you can ‘measure’ your goal, it is probably not inspiring.
If you can ‘time-bound’ your goal, you will probably take short cuts.
Instead, think about your DUMB goals…. and start now. Not on Jan. 1st, not on Monday, not tomorrow…. now.
Your dreams should mesmerize you and captivate you. Not time-bind you or suggest you think about ‘reality’.
Dream big, then go after it.
How about you? Do you want SMART goals or DUMB goals? Or maybe you just want to live spontaneously and adventurously???
