The Right Goals...
For a while, on the wall in front of my desk, was a really big sheet of paper, full of Post-Its with future business goals, projects and tasks. The big stuff. Stuff that would take years to work through. It was supposed to act as a reminder to keep working and stay focused, but it became a source of tension and stress - a constant reminder of how much there was to do, and how much of it I hadn’t done yet.
So I took it down and transferred the contents to a page in my notebook, ready for when I need it, out of sight when I don’t.
If they’re the right goals we won’t need constant reminders - if they’re not, then no amount of coloured Post-Its will ever change that….
