Great Goals make Great People...
Thursday, October 18, 2018
I just read this quote this morning -
"Great goals make great people. People cannot hit what they do not aim for" - Roy T. Bennett
and it just hit a chord in me. And then I am sitting here thinking about this more - we all make goals don't we? Or are those just desires and not goals. What do we need to do to have a goal and then achieve it. I intend to define it for myself now.
I have made several plans over these years, some I have fulfilled and some not. I have/had several goals but then they never had good planning. Why? May be because I planned to do the impossible or I didn't plan it good enough.
Well, its good to have a timeframe to achieve your goal because that's your deadline but sometimes you just need to achieve your goal and the timing doesn't matter. Whether it is slow and steady, it is still progress. Each day should be better than before.
I was recently diagnosed with type-2 diabetes. This was shocking for my doctor too given my age and various other factors but considering my pcos and hereditary sugar problem it seemed inevitable But then again I wasn't ready for it andI thought if it will happen it will happen later in my life and I'll deal with it. Now I sit here wondering I have this lifelong condition to deal with and I haven't even done anything in life. I'm yet to start a family. I read so many articles and stuff about starting a family with the condition and it scares me to hell.
So I sit here today, planning on how to overcome this obstacle. I know I can but I just have to plan it right - don't be too aggressive that I give up easily; or not to be too easy-going as time is running out! So I am going to be one of those great people with a great plan towards a great goal.
Wish me luck...
