|I was having coffee with my friend Pat the other day and the subject of goals and success came up. Have you noticed that no matter what goal you accomplish, the next goal quickly grabs your attention and efforts?|
And most of the time we don’t even take the time to really relish our successes because we are usually working on multiple goals at the same time.
Pat said, “There is no arrive, there is only arriving.”
As entrepreneurs, we naturally dream big. It’s part of our DNA. We just can’t help but strive for a life ordinary people only read about in magazines and see on TV.
Goals can become layered in complexity, each interacting with and dependent upon others. When this happens, we can lose sight of the forest because we’re stuck in the trees.
Although what he said is true, it’s important to keep perspective on what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. And make sure your professional goals are supporting your personal goals.
The only time you’ll really arrive is when you reach your “final” destination in the Promised Land with our Heavenly Father.
Up until that point, our lives are like a cross country road trip. Getting from point A to point Z requires a lot of stops along the way.
Enjoy the journey. Celebrate the wins along the way. Help others when you can.
Professionally, there are an infinite number of paths you can choose. Probate real estate may be the path less traveled, but you’ll find it is one of the most rewarding both personally and financially.
To your success,
