put your goals in writing
posted: December 14, 2009
Meet our newest blog artist, Matt from our Saskatoon store! He recently achieved his Big Hairy Audacious Goal of becoming a blogger for our team!
“Which road should I take?” (Alice)
“Where do you want to go?” (Cat)
“I don’t know,” Alice answered.
“Then”, said the Cat, “It doesn’t matter. If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”
- Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
How true. The path to self development is often as winding and unpredictable as Alice’s journey through Wonderland. Just this year I set out on a similar adventure: What is my Big Hairy Audacious Goal?
Who knew that these little statements of “I will…” would became so powerful and life-changing once they hit the paper… As soon as I wrote my goals out I began working harder at the things that I loved, and am passionate about. In sequence, I got closer and closer to achieving the things that I wanted to achieve! For example: this year I set out to decide to really “jump in” to writing, and more frightening, having my writing read and shared by many different people. Once I put “I will join the lululemon blog team” on paper, it was all i wanted to make happen. I began looking at what I could do to qualify, finally leading into applying through email. I worked to make it happen, and it did, and it can happen to you right now.
I encourage you out there (at least I hope you’re out there ) to take the time today, sit down with a good coffee and think of a goal you want to accomplish this week. Maybe its finishing your 5K strong or just polishing off that paper you were procrastinating on. Meeting goals feels AWESOME, so why not? Dare to step out on a ledge today and you might just find out that your ledge wasn’t as tall as you thought it was!
Feel free to comment below with your goals and successes!
