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.
