Share: Goal Failure
So, here is the deal. I love goals. And I have been in more and more conversation around goals: be it my goals, other's goals, New Year's resolutions, failed goals, achieved......
I pulled open my most recently updated goal sheet and noticed a couple missed dates. Example:
I rock Bird of Paradise in yoga - balanced hips +shoulders = balanced life by Nov. 2011. Epic fail - if you could have seen me trying to do it last night in my living room.... it was more like crouching one-legged dragon. #notparadise
I own a CANON camera with purple neck strap by October 15, 2011. Miss - just me and my Blackberry photo uploads.
I stared at the computer screen. Sat back. Looked at my goal sheet and really wondered what was up with that? I had written these goals down - present tense, with an accountability date...what was holding me back?
I had taken the time to write my goals - but had not truly taken the time to commit to my goals. A very necessary step.
The goals can sound really great and look really inspiring on paper - but until you freakin' rock out and get into action - there is no real goal at all. Just a reminder of something you might have, should have, supposedly could have done.
So here I am - re-commiting. The RE- standing for REALLY....really committing to Bird of Paradise and that radical camera.
I will be updating with photos and how and when and why!
