Set unrealistic goals 💪 #121
By Ross Chapman • Issue #121 • View online
You know what? I have moments where I just can’t be bothered.
Yep, you read right.
I think one issue I’ve had is not had firm goals, both in work and outside of it. I’ve spent a bit of time reassessing and now have a set of goals in my personal Trello board.
For example:
In two years time, I want to hit the podium in a cycle race.
Recognise the format? Also note: I have some questions on how I’m going to achieve that!
Set yourself some goals and you may go some way in achieving them. BONUS: When setting goals, go unrealistic, or 10x it, as Grant Cardone says. He talks about setting unbelievable unrealistic goals, because if you set your target higher, your actions will take you further that if you set a more realistic goal. Forgive his unique style, but he says:
“In order to get to the next level of whatever you’re doing, you must think and act in a wildly different way than you previously have been. You cannot get to the next phase of a project without a grander mind-set, more acceleration, and extra horsepower.”
Yee-haw!
Set some unrealistic goals this week.
Thank you for reading this issue,
