Recently, I was talking goal-setting with a dear friend who also happens to be a life coach. As I was describing how my career would look as a perfect 10, she stopped me and said, “you know your 8 is most people’s 11, right?” Her words were much appreciated perspective on my tendency to set the bar impossibly high and then be hard on myself for not being an immediate success.
The truth is, reaching a goal is kind of like accessorizing. You want to be bold and at the same time, too much ruins an outfit. The trick is balance and being OK with letting some things fade into the background so others can shine bright. Today, with a potential-filled Monday in front of you, make sure you’re focusing your shine in the right places, Foxes. Here’s to a great week ahead. xo
