Should You Be Raising The Bar?

Should I Raise The Bar? Or Should I Not?

It seems simple, but it’s not always so black and white. And for me in particular it’s not a simple question.

Goals Are Directions

Something I’ve stood behind is that our goals are not destinations. They are directions that we are working towards.

The Target Isn’t What Matters

My point is the target isn’t what matters. It’s your hustle, your work. When you want to see a paycheque, figure out what you can do and work towards it that way.

What Matters Most Is You Grow From It

And I think the biggest thing is that the goal prompts you to grow into the person to achieve that goal. At the time I set the goal and the desired figure, I felt like it was going to be really close. That it would take a lot of time for me to set up something that can make money.

So Set The Bar High

So even though I’m not shifting the bar, I still will be setting a few other fun year end goals for myself. But also I encourage you to set high expectations for yourself for the end of this year.
