“If you aim at nothing, don’t worry… you’ll hit it.”

A clear and defined goal seems like an obvious first step. However, it is often missed.

It’s not that we don’t have any general goals or directions in mind. What we tend to lack is the ubnmistakeable specificity. We lack the concrete intentions that are impossible to mix up when we’re under way.

If we have to pause to think about what our goals are, we havn’t yet defined them to the extent we seek. They need to come to our lips in the blink of an eye, as if it’s a subconscious reaction. For no other reason than to see us through the inevitable storm.

When we cross adversity, mixed emotions sway will try to sway our judgement. This is where compromises push their way into our thoughts. We convince ourselves of a new goal, purely due to changing circumstances. A clear and defined goal however, will see us through the most challenging of conditions.

Let it be specific, measurable, and actionable.

“I need to get better with money”, turns into “I will have $40 each payment transferred to my retirement account.”

“I want to get fitter”, turns into “I will eat 3 quality meals per day, 6 days per week, and go to the gym on Mon/Tue/Wed, Fri/Sat”.

“I want to have better presentation skills”, turns into “I will take the improv class in my city every Monday for the next six weeks”.
Be intentional. Specificity is everything.
