Big things, achievements, goals, a legacy, these are the things in life that we all strive for. You might not want to admit to it, but you do too. Your big thing might be to buy a house for your family to live in, start your own successful business so that you can be your own boss or become healthier to ensure that you are around to enjoy a long life with your loved ones. Getting Big things done will always be a lingering thought for all of us. So why aren’t you, and me actually going after them, why don’t we work on achieving these big things?
Having goals in life is important. In striving to reach your goals you practice a few skills that you need to have mastered to get through all the challenges in your life. You have to make smart choices, sacrifice some things. You forego lots little joys that, were it not for your inner drive to achieve that goal, you would be indulging. Not overdoing it of course, but what exactly is wrong with laying in a little more, a little bit of sugar in your one-a-day cup of coffee or as I discovered break away from precious workout time to enjoy a magical moment with my 2-year-old son.
