I can teach anybody how to get what they want in life. The problem is I can’t seem to find anybody who can tell me what they truly want. -Mark Twain
I love this quote so much! We live in a world where we are constantly distracted and on the go. We are chasing after things that in the end never really mattered. We never really sit and think, what do we want? What are our goals? What gift are we leaving this world?
The cool breeze and fall leaves (Ha! I’m a rapper now) this morning reminded me that it is now October. Mid-October actually! We are officially in the last quarter of the year. Which means it is time for us to go harder then ever before. It means we are to finish this year strong. As I was thinking about goals today I started to dream new dreams and write new goals….basically I got distracted! But a small voice directed me back to my current goals. The voice directed me back to what I wrote out for this year. The goals I have already set in place and more importantly the goals I have NOT completed yet. Today was a needed break from work, kids, and other humans so that I could re-focus on my current dreams and goals. There is noting wrong with dreaming new dreams and goals. But we can get caught up in always dreaming and never doing! (tweet that!).
There are a couple of big goals I need to accomplish this year and I still have time. I will take another day to make my dreams and goals list for next year. But for right now I am focused on what I set out to do. Today’s quote reminds me to have my vision before me and know what I am going after.
What about you….What are some goals that you can accomplish this year? You still have time. It’s the 4th quarter, it’s time to go hard!
