Adjust Your Steps not Your Goals!
PMG's QTQW # 4 (11 OCT 20)
"When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps." - Confucius
DrM's Mental Performance Coaching Tip
We traveled way back for this quote as Confucius lived around years 551-479 B.C. This journey reinforces the concept that not much is new under the sun. Way back then, it was already clear to most that adjusting goals and pushing back deadlines would not get you closer to what you want to accomplish. We are in that phase of your development this year. You are trying to set up goals for the year and naturally begin to second guess if you should push back your dreams. We can develop a million reasons to procrastinate, adjust, and give ourselves more space; however, we must fight the temptation. Commit to what you want to accomplish; you may surprise yourself. Our human capacity can only be stifled by our own thoughts and behaviors. Do a quick assessment today and ask yourself, which action steps I need to adjust? DrM believes in me, the Steer program believes in me, my family depends on me; I must take the proper steps. Taking a short time to develop a plan will pay off in the long run.
