Far Goals: It’s the Hail Mary, the cross court shot, a trip to Mars. It’s something you know is impossible . . . today. But something that could be accomplished with enough time, enough practice, and a long term goal to get there.
I’ve had a number of far goals in my life. Each one seemed impossible at the time. There was always a nagging voice in my head telling me that I wasn’t good enough, smart enough, or dedicated enough. I couldn’t possibly reach it.
Yet, in so many cases, the impossible became possible. The far distant goal, came closer and closer, until I was able to reach out and grab it. Sadly, some of the distant goals in my life have eluded me. Some I can see, but there is a mountain or a valley in the way. Some are clouded with a mystery that requires a clue, a key, or a bit of luck. Some are on the other side of a river of fear. A shallow fast moving stream that looks so deep, so treacherous. I couldn’t possibly cross.
Think of the far goals in your life. Maybe it’s a bachelor’s degree, maybe a masters. Maybe the next goal in your life is a doctorate, maybe a leadership position, maybe the lauded CEO position.

Goals and SMART Goals are a start,
A good strategy is important,
But action is the key.
You must go. [Read more…] about Far Goals: Master the Impossible
