The Monthly Goalpost for January 2014: Take aim

A New Year is here, Sub It Clubbers!

Some feel the need to evaluate, sum up, and project into the future. Others don’t want to think too much and prefer to take things as they come. I do a little of both and finish with a mishmash of varied results.

This year my strategy is to have one goal and stay centered on that one goal. Nothing else counts. Other things have to get done but I’m not going to let the TO DO list fool me into thinking I’m getting closer to the goalpost.

The TO DO list can trick you into doing a lot of things around the goal without doing the exact thing needed to reach the goal. (That’s right, singular.)

So as you ring in the New Year, take a minute to zero in on the one thing you want to accomplish the most— the one thing you need to accomplish— and fix your vision on that. Take aim and do not stray.

    1. AHH! I know! I guess I just want to prioritize and not let myself be comforted by ticking things off the TO DO list that make me think I’m working towards goals. Sometimes all that other stuff is really keeping me from dealing with the “real” goal…

  1. One Goal – not 10 or 20? IF I must focus on only 1 goal – It is to land a PB contract w/ a trade pub. But so right to focus on only the 1 goal as that’s the north star that sets up the action for the year.
