Today is my birthday, and as a gift to myself I wrote this a few days in advance so I can truly enjoy the weekend and not wonder when I am going to write a blog post.
I used to have a clear idea of what I would have accomplished by the age of 30. I saw my late twenties as a time to get stuff done and work towards big things. And I have definitely gotten stuff done, but I haven’t seen the big payoff, and I don’t know if I will in the next year.
My brain has a lot of tabs open, all with different goals. I’ve accepted myself as a slow runner, but I’m not willing to give up my running goals. I’m a social media addict, but I am starting to question whether I will actually work in marketing. I tend to chose the clear path, and until a clear path emerges, I will take baby steps in all directions.
Baby steps are slow. They are frustrating. You’re learning and watching others who have no problem walking/running towards their goals. So I’m hoping in this next year, instead of taking baby steps. I’ll dance.
Do you have goals for certain ages?
What do you do when you don’t meet the goals?
