Action steps trip me up. I'm so busy worrying about the ENTIRE thing, as I work through each goal, I don't enjoy the process. I just want to get to the end, or I worry I'll miss something along the way...
Wow. Two and half years ago I completed a rigorous program to become a volunteer Firefighter. I was so very proud of myself and so determined. I was the only female out of ten that began to finish. Somewhere along those two and half years I have lost that feeling of pride and have becomd doubtful that I can continue forward with anything. Thank you for the article, it brought me back to reality and as I sit here looking at all of my other certificates proving to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to, I think I have a chance this time.
This was really a great article! It made me think about my failures to reach goals in the not-so-distant past. I didn't plan daily what I would do. I was afraid I would be called obsessed...blah blah... but you're right, it is necessary. Thank you for this article!

I found this to be very interesting. Using the same principles of reaching life goals to something more tangible. I found it helpful.
Mike I really enjoyed this article. You are right "you thought you were just making a coffee table" but this lesson taught you so much more. This is certainly one of my favorite articles that I have read. thank you for the wonderful lesson. Donna
