Goals and challenges are not the same

Many folks think having goals is motivating, and they can be. The words goal and challenge aren’t synonymous though, and the difference is important.

I can set a goal of running 5km and, for me, that wouldn’t be motivating precisely because it’s not a challenge. For someone else it will be and I salute anyone tackling what they find difficult – not what I might find difficult.

If you’re looking for motivation, don’t just set some goals, choose a challenge.

One you can rise to.

Kindly, get going.
