I share a lot of goal-setting tips through this blog, such as:
But even if we apply the best goal setting tips we know, there is no guarantee that we will reach our goals. So, is there anything good that comes from not reaching our goals?
Here it is in one word: EXPERIENCE
Experience is what we gain when we don’t reach our goals, and experience is one of the greatest gifts we can receive. Going through the process of gaining experience isn’t something we usually strive for (nor should we), but the experience we gain from not reaching a goal is often as valuable as, if not more valuable than, reaching the goal itself.
Therefore, if you didn’t reach all your goals during the first quarter of the year, all is not lost. Take a moment and evaluate what experience you gained and be sure to apply what you learned to your life. My bet is that you’ll realize the first quarter of the year was more valuable than you thought!
