A familiar story?

I used to be a goal setting machine. I had specific goals for each area of my life - yearly, all the way down to monthly. This went on for about 15 years, until I finally admitted to myself I was deeply unhappy.

Sure, I got quite a bit done, but I felt like crap most of the time.

  • My goals were too optimistic. My 'perfect' plans fell apart quickly.
  • My motivation was high at the beginning, but quickly dipped.
  • I found myself in a vicious circle of constantly rewriting my goals because things changed. My planning efforts felt like a waste of time.
  • I struggled with competing priorities (work, health, relationships, financial etc.). I always felt so overwhelmed.
  • I spent a lot of time worrying about the future, which stopped me enjoying life right now.
  • I found myself in a rut of constant self-criticism. I beat myself up on nearly a daily basis for not tracking towards all of my goals. I wasn't much fun to be around!

Sound familiar? If so, it doesn't have to be that way.

I spent many years experimenting, until I developed a system that works. Rarely do I suffer with the above now. I'm more focused, productive and happier than I've ever been.

I write about that, and how to live better here.
