Rushing Toward Your Goals Is Why You’re Not Achieving Them

The faster you try to do something, the more unsustainable it becomes.

You do not need to write your book in one week. You do not need to get in shape in one month. You do not need to be running a profitable business two months after it is founded. In fact, it is often when we try to do these things too quickly that we end up farther back than when we started.

When we sit down to figure out what we want our goals to be, we tend to do it within a very particular frame of time. But it’s not about what we can just check off in the next 12 or 18 or 24 months. It’s not about what you can achieve by December 31, 2020. It’s about what intentions you’re setting to change your life — and yourself — down at your core.
