“In the distance our destination awaits us.” #bgdtcoaching.
If our efforts are directed towards our chosen objectives it is fair to say we have a chance of achieving success, even if it is in the distance. Focusing on our priorities is as much about seeing where we want to get to in the distance, as concentrating on the minute details of the task to hand.
Having started out on the journey towards our goal, we need not forget to enjoy the adventure. Though in the distance our destination awaits us, each step along the path can provide its own pleasure, learning and insight. Our job is, as ever, to tap into these items as we keep our eyes on the goal in the distance.
And what about when we cannot see our goal, possibly because it is too far in the distance?
With our main goal firmly established in our heart, we always have the option to break the goal into more manageable pieces. Getting to the first of these ‘minor’ goals propels us onwards to the next and so forth. What was once in the distance comes into our orbit as we strive forward.
Or perhaps not. If you’d like to share your thoughts on the issues raised here, please leave a comment below. In any case, thanks for reading this ‘In the distance‘ post today.
