I’m typing here in the wee small hours of my 57th birthday and I’m thinking a lot about goals right now
About goals that I’ve had and ones that I will have
About goals achieved and ones that I’m still working on
About goals that it’s time to let go of and ones that I need to keep on trucking on
And a birthday is a fine time to take stock. To look at what you’ve done, and what you want to do. To set some goals and put other ones aside to make room for them
It’s been another challenging year, but still I’m moving on the path to my dreams. And today, in and amongst all of the festivities, I’m making time to figure out where I am now, and where I’m going next, and what I need to do to get there.
When you sail a boat, 90% of the time the boat will not be heading directly for your destination. You need to tack from side to side, in order to catch the wind in your sails to propel you forwards. You get where you’re going by tacking, but also keeping your eye on your destination and bringing yourself back on course
Life’s kinda like that too. A lot of tacking and then getting back on course
A lot of people kind of drift through life and then wonder “what happened?” I’m finding that the key to accomplishing things I’m glad to have done is to know what I want, set some goals to make that happen, and check in to make sure that I’m still on course
So that’s what I’ll be doing today. Setting my new destination, and bringing myself back on course.
Happy birthday to me and happy my birthday to you as well
Are you on course?
