Goals Are The Highway To Your Future

Holy sh*t what a sweet day on the West Coast it was.  It was 26 celsius down by English Bay, but it felt chillier than that because of the wind. Wifey and I were sun tanning for about 2 hours and now we look like red peppers. No, I am NOT complaining. We don’t get enough sun in Vancouver to ever complain about the heat. I am loving it, my origins (Italian) are from a hot climate, so I love the heat.

Even though I have been taking a beating online, I’m in good spirits overall. I ended up heading over to StevePavlina.com. I used to read his site all the time, when I first got into reading blogs, about 3 years ago. The funny thing is Steve Pavlina had just written a post about the importance of writing down your goals. That blog post on goals couldn’t have come at a better time.

I am an avid goal writer but I have definitely been slacking off in that area for the last few months. Writing down my goals has always lead to me to achieve what I had written down. I tend to keep my financial goals in a private blog posts now because I don’t feel like saying how much I make, and want to make in the future.

Steve Pavlina says to keep your goals in front of you, so you see them every single day. I have had my start page as a goal page (personal goals, family goals & financial goals) for a few years now. I hadn’t updated that page in many, many months until tonight. Now I feel a sense of direction just by updating my goals to reflect what I want to achieve in the next 30 days and then the next 60 days. The cool thing is I know I will reach both goals, so I have a sense of  excitement, enthusiasm and calmness, all in one shot.

If I didn’t have this blog I doubt I would have achieved the goals I set for myself, but writing them down and blogging about my goals has helped me not only to focus but also feel accountable to myself and for some reason people who read my blog.  I don’t like to bullshit people or myself, so if I say I am going to do something I make it a priority to make sure I bust my ass to do it. Excuses are are for people who are complacent, that’s not me. I was complacent from 1 year old to 29 years old after that things were NEVER the same.

The sky is the limit, dream big…
