Goal setting mistake

mistake in goal setting

I am no newcomer to goal setting. I set goals all the time. And still, I made a small mistake.

For the first time I decided to create a list of goals in 2011, I got it right. I put it up on my front page as a list, and then I’d cross off an item as I achieved it.

For 2012, I decided to one up it. I made an image. A poster in fact. And published it one blog post here.

The problem with this approach is that the goals became hard and fast.

I couldn’t check them off anymore.

And I couldn’t add to them.

Or change them.

After 8 months of not realizing my mistake, now in September, three months before this year is about to end, I’ve decided to create a special page dedicated to my goals.

Ah, why didn’t I just do this in the first place.

Oh Bhamla. I worry about you sometimes.
