[Podcast] Deferred, not denied – Keep making your lists, keep crafting your vision, don’t abandon your goals

Deferred is not denied!

As high achievers, we’re used to setting BIG goals – they’re reason we can label ourselves high achievers after all.  However, I’ve noticed that we also can get down on ourselves when we don’t achieve a goal on the timeline we create.

What I’m realizing more and more is  sometimes our timing isn’t the most optimal timing! Give yourself some grace; even if you haven’t made the big goal happen by the original deadline you set, by planting seeds, you’re doing some of the legwork even if you find yourself moving slower than you originally intended.

In episode 42 of the Package Your Genius podcast, I talked about a few sneaky little goals of mine that seemed to accomplish themselves while I was busy doing other things – imagine that.

I chalk it all up to writing them down, making lists, and putting the vision into the hands of my subconscious mind and seeing the results manifest. Be encouraged and don’t abandon your goals. Make room for them even if it’s only by thinking about them, you’ll be surprised at how your life can go on autopilot and help you reach them.
