When your goals are bigger than your gonads

Share

If you ever feel down about how little you’ve accomplished this week/this year/this lifetime, you’re not alone. We all feel that way from time to time. 

We set goals that are beyond our current capabilities. We take on too many projects at the same time. Or we let our fears get the better of us and stop us in our tracks.

Hey, we have big appetites. Big plans. And that’s good. So what if we don’t hit all our targets? We tried. We didn’t wimp out and settle for what’s easy, we took a shot at something great. 

So don’t beat yourself up for what you haven’t done. Even if you didn’t come close to hitting your goal, the odds are you’ve done a lot more than you realize. 

Look at your calendar for the last six months. Look at all the tasks you’ve crossed off your to-do list. Think about all of your works-in-progress (cases, client work product, projects, etc.) and reflect on the progress you’ve made. 

Celebrate what you’ve done and how far you’ve come. 

Really. You need to celebrate your awesomeness. 

Take a selfie and show the world your best stink-eye. Take a day off the diet and get you some Rum Raisin. Sing along with some stadium rock and wave your foam finger. 

Because you ARE a champion. A bad-ass, foam finger waving, Superbowl-quality champion.

Just make sure your windows are closed and the shades are drawn. Your neighbors are worried enough about you. 

If you’re not into football, here’s something else to watch
