Be Realistic But Optimistic

In this video, Taz speaks about some goals she has set for herself that haven’t unfolded on the timeline she was hoping for. This happens and is totally normal! It's crucial for our well being and our growth that we don’t let these roadblocks become the be all and end all.

Setting goals is a constant dance between your realistic self and your visionary self. It’s important that we are able to step back, analyze and recognise this when setting/re-setting goals so that we are able to acknowledge the setback yet still stay motivated to overcome it.

Most people overestimate what they can do in a year and they underestimate what they can do in a decade.

Here is your challenge for this week!

1. Be honest about where you are at RIGHT NOW!

If you dream of making $20,000 a month but are currently earning $500 a month then you need to account for this and take stock of where you are at right now.

2. Come up with a PLAN

The key here is to give yourself multiple timelines. 1 Ideal time-frame, 1 Slow time-frame and then the other in the middle.

3. Check in REGULARLY

Don’t just set a goal, plan once and then never check in on the goal! This cycle needs to be on a loop and you should check in on a regular basis (weekly, monthly or QTRLY). The reason you check in is to monitor your progress and make adjustments when needed!

Comment below with what your goals and time-frames are and what adjustments you might have to make if things don’t go to plan?
