How to Tell If Your Goal Is Big Enough
So often we hear we need to follow our dreams and set our sights high. Yet, when we get to setting a goal, sometimes we shy away from the thing we should really be aiming for…
Think about it like this:
Let’s say your long term goal is to own a house -
So you save money and work just hard enough to buy a house that’s within reach…
Now, let’s say your long term goal is to own a 3,000 square foot house in a gated community in Newport Beach, California. Heck, maybe even two -
With this goal in mind you’re probably going to work a little harder, right? You will probably have to innovate and get creative to achieve that goal…
And the best part is, even if you aim for that and end up buying a 2,300 square foot house in a gated community in a little less expensive area you are still achieving more than you would’ve if you hadn’t aimed high and gotten specific!
Now that you understand what I mean, let’s look at 3 questions to ask yourself to tell if your long term goals are big enough:
1. Does it almost seem unattainable?
You will know your goal is big enough if it feels uncomfortable and unattainable. Your long term goals should push you outside your comfort zone and make you really reach so you can level up!
2. How long will it take to accomplish?
A good long term goal will take time. There will be lots of trial and error and room for innovation. If you can achieve your big dream in a year, I encourage you to reach even higher!
3. Is it specific?
Get specific with your big goal! Let yourself really dream about that thing you want because the bigger and most specific it is, the harder you’re going to work to achieve it! If it’s not specific, it’s not big enough!
