Diana Nyad is 64 years old, the same age I am. She is about to achieve a goal she set for herself years ago, swimming from Cuba to Florida. This is not her first attempt. As I write this blog she is less than 10 miles from her goal. Go, Diana!
Setting a goal and tackling it is a very powerful experience; achieving it is profoundly satisfying. Today I'm going to rethink my goals. Have I clearly defined what I'm trying to achieve? Are my goals big enough?
What are your goals? How do you use goals to motivate yourself?
Edit: She did it!! She arrived at 3:41 (or was it 3:14??). How exciting! She achieved her goal 35 years after first trying. I believe it was her 5th attempt. Never stop!
