Have you ever ran a marathon?
How would you approach such an enormous task?
I doubt that you would sign up for a marathon, show up on race day, and start sprinting towards the end as fast as you could with no training under your belt, right? That would be crazy!
Many of our goals in life are much bigger than we think, and just like a marathon, we have to plan, take action daily, build momentum, and see our goals through to the finish line. If you’ve tried tackling big goals in the past and failed, it’s not your fault.
In today’s fast-paced environment, it’s difficult to stay focused, and it’s even more difficult to not give into the need for instant gratification. I totally get it!
In this week’s episode of the podcast, I outline a simple strategy to help you overcome the sprint-based mentality of goal setting and, instead, focus on the steady race towards success.
