Focus on growth, not goals
Setting a goal is pointing in a direction.
Growth is taking a step forward.
A goal is dreaming up the work you must do.
Growth is doing it.
A goal is huge, difficult to digest.
Growth is bite-sized.
A goal is easy to prolong, put off, and procrastinate.
Growth faces very little Resistance.
A goal (for most) is optional.
Growth is intentional.
A goal, you can change.
Growth changes you.
A goal is plotting the distance between two points.
Growth is closing it.
A goal can take years (and may never be realized).
Growth can be instant.
Growth happens the moment you iterate with the intention to improve.
On a project, on yourself, on a way of thinking.
It’s more than a step forward, it’s a look back.
It’s a reflection of:
What you did well.
What you can do better.
What you’ll try differently next time.
A goal can be important.
Growth certainly is.
