EP 52: How to Set BIG and Realistic Goals
How much do you want to earn in 2021?
I used to really dislike that ☝ question… because I had no idea how to answer it.
“What do you mean, ‘how much do I want to earn’? As much as I can, of course!”
It’s a lot like when you’re shopping for something expensive and the sales rep asks you, “So, what’s your budget?”
Of course, sometimes we DO have a budget, but a lot of the time I just want to spend as little as I can to get the thing I need. (I’m sure I can’t be the only one…)
Any answer to the “how much do you want to earn” question just felt… arbitrary. I’d say a smaller number, trying to be “realistic” — but it wasn’t [at all] what I really wanted. Or I’d say a BIG number, but it felt pointless because it seemed impossible.
If you can relate to this struggle between modest “realistic” goals and ambitious inspiring goals, then today’s podcast episode is for you.
Because here’s the truth: there CAN be a balance between those two extremes. And not just a compromise… you can actually set goals that are both realistic and inspiring.
