“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”—Will Rogers
I’m headed out today to a workshop. It’s about achieving goals. It’s being presented by a friend of mine who is a life coach. Many of the most successful people I know have coaches. They might not have a paid life coach, but they have someone in their lives who helps them to clarify their goals and figure out what steps they need to take to achieve those goals.
I’m a big believer in working toward goals. I think that life moves constantly. If you’re not moving forward, you’re falling behind. That doesn’t mean that you should be always pushing yourself. It means that you need to continually evaluate where you are compared to where you want to be. Play and rest are as important to reaching your personal goals as training and hard work are to reaching your professional goals.
What are your goals? Have you defined them? Do you know what you need to do to reach them? Are you doing those things? Are there people in your life you can enlist to help you reach those goals? If you need help, don’t hesitate to ask for it. Consider hiring a life coach. A few sessions with someone who can help you figure out what you want and how to get it would be well worth the money. Making even a small move forward every week can get you to your goal eventually.
