Aug 29, 2016

Big Goals can Backfire... so instead... Focus on the Process

  • Beware of BHAGs... "big hairy audacious goals" that may be unrealistic and possibly demoralize, demotivate, and detach you from your routine/daily steps
    • Watch out for "post race blues" or the "danger of the finish line"... big let downs
    • Do not tie your self worth to things that may be out of your control
  • Goal setting - done properly can be effective steering mechanism, provide direction
  • Focus on the Process Instead!!!
    • Break goal down into component parts and focus on the parts!
    • 3 Step Process
      1. Set Goal
      2. Figure steps to goal that are within your control
      3. Perfect the steps into your "routine/habits"
    • Daily Victories-->Process-->Progress-->Dopamine/Endorphins-->Energy to Persevere
    • Victory Cycle... Industriousness-->Enthusiasm-->Industriousness... Equals Success
    • Seek Harmonious Passion instead of Obsessive Passion
    • Focus on the Process and that which you can control
