O: Overambitious Goals

O: Overambitious Goals

Goal-setting can be both exciting and stressful. Generally we make these at the beginning of the year, promptly forgetting about them or going off the rails. We also make smaller-scale goals for smaller aspects of our life, and generally these are easier for us to reach but we’re still not perfect. I’m largely talking in this post about the former type, but this also applies to the latter type for those of us who tend to go for overachieving at times or wrongly estimate how much time we’ll have to do things.

Building a Firm Foundation

You see those ruins in the picture? They’re still standing. Why? Because they have a firm foundation. They were built to last. They were built to withstand rain and wind and time in general. Obviously the whole building hasn’t survived, but a large section of it is still there, and it’s because of that foundation.
