We are rapidly approaching the New Year! This instinctively means that we will be assessing our achievements and setting goals for the year ahead. When you do your self-assessment, give yourself permission to be wherever it is that you are in your process. You are right where you are supposed to be right now. When you set your goals, be careful not to over pressurize yourself. Most people set goals according to where they think they should be in life, and not according to where they actually are in life. Maybe you have begun to regret some of your life choices and think that you should be further along in life. Setting goals with this frame of mind will lead you to overexert yourself and you will probably experience burn-out before you even get close to accomplishing your goals. Acknowledge and embrace where you are right now, and set your goals from that place. If you do this, your goals will be relevant, attainable, and challenging enough to cause personal growth.
