While goals can be really helpful, they aren’t always ideal.
- You’re spinning your wheels, not going anywhere.
- You’re a failure.
- You haven’t achieved anything since the goal seems so distant.
- Measuring success this way can make you feel defeated, especially if you have big, ambitious goals.
- For example, if you want to own a Fortune 500 hundred company, nothing you do until you reach that goal will make you feel like you’re succeeding. You may be making incredible strides in your business, but they will fall flat compared to your hard-to-achieve goal.
