YOUR GOALS MUST BE REALISTIC

YOUR GOALS MUST BE REALISTIC

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

This is number 8 in the top 10 goals checklist. Your goals must be realistic. Actually, dreaming big is not unrealistic, it is the time-frame you give yourself in achieving that goal that is unrealistic.

So go ahead and dream big, set yourself large goals, just be sure to allow ample time to achieve those goals.

Like I said in January, wanting to lose 150 pounds in two months is unrealistic not because of the amount of weight wanting to be lost, but because of the unrealistic  time frame given to achieve that weight loss.  Losing 150 pounds is a great goal, just be sure to allow at least one to one and a half years to achieve that goal.

About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
