Try To Beat A Poke In The Eye With Your 2010 Goals

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Two BabiesI remember very vividly a country style gentleman looking at an "ok" offer that wasn't quite what he wanted for his house for sale and commented, "Well, it beats a poke in the eye."

I think with our goals and also aspirations for 2010 we need to set our sights higher and feel like we deserve better.

Being better than a  poke in the eye is settling.

Whether in our relationships, our desired achievements, our glorious plans written down on a napkin, all areas ~ be bold, aim high, want the BEST for yourself. In goals they call it stretch goals. Don't want some EASY goal. Dare to be great.

We should aim for goals BECAUSE of the very real reason they are HARD to achieve. But you know in doing that, your realize you are WORTH IT!!!

Heeding your sage advice, Gary, I will upgrade my goals for the upcoming year from a poke in the eye to an atomic knee smash to the junk.  My prediction for 2010? ... pain.

You need a disclaimer to this blog, Gary. "No babies were injured during the making of this article." It's an important life skill to recognize it could be worse AND it could be better. I think. Maybe. Hmm.

I'll get back to you on that.

they are so important and to have them written down and visualize is equally important. I believe you have to have a way to measure your progress.
