As I was shopping this week I noticed that Super Bowl Sunday is coming up. The aisles were packed with all kinds of snack foods to eat while watching the biggest football extravaganza of the year. I don't watch much football but I have noticed that a football team has a clearly defined goal and that is really the root of what I'm writing about today. We too need to have our goal posts in view.
Defining our Goals
I think we all need clearly defined goals in order to succeed in getting them done. Just like the football player that knows when he has 20 yards to go, we also need to be able to see what we've accomplished.
I think that is why I love working in baby steps. Taking big jobs and dividing them into smaller jobs. When I get each little job done then I know I'm getting closer and closer to the finish line.
I do an entry once a week on a blog called the Motivation station. There is a link to that on my side bar of this blog. And for the month of January we were all challenged to clear out and toss 100 items. I didn't quite make that goal but I was very close. The way I look at it, I did a good job. If I hadn't had that goal I probably wouldn't have tossed anything.
Life is a journey of small steps. Some require strength and courage....others require only a simple goal.
Have a SUPER Saturday everyone!
