Don’t Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

Posted by Megan Valenzuela Posted on Jan 19 2016


Goals are a great thing to have.  Professionally and personally.  I have many of them that fit both categories, and I’m constantly working at achieving them. 

Many goals that we see are long-term, big-picture types.  You know the ones – saving for retirement, buying a home, saving for your kids’ college education, and so on.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the overall goals because there are so many big ones.  It’s stressful to think about everything you have to do, how much you need to save and how long you have to do it.

So here’s my recommendation: Break up your big-picture goals into bite-sized ones.  Create yearly, monthly, weekly or daily goals to achieve.  Here’s the kicker – make sure those small goals line up with your life goals.  By focusing on smaller, more quickly attained goals then you will create the momentum you need to move forward. 

Let’s face it, it’s all about moving forward in life.  We want to accomplish more and do more for our kids then we ever thought possible.  Try not to get overwhelmed with the long-term goals, but set your sights for smaller ones. 

If you need help trying to prioritize and set goals that best fit you, then give us a call at 573-686-3053.  We’ll be happy to help.
