I recently wrote on the topic of goals verses standards. How are you doing? It’s entirely possible the fizzle of excitement has faded. And, it’s completely normal. Achieving your goals and standards takes time, dedication, and discipline. Let’s bring back that excitement and get your goals to the forefront.

Say goodbye to your goals.
Standards are the key to accomplishment.
We can’t deny it. As the New Year arrives, we set new goals and proclaim our new year’s resolutions. Maybe you bought a new planner and pretty pen, colorful new workout clothes, or even a new recipe book because surely these things are the key to your success. (If only it were that easy.) Nevertheless, it does not take long and the excitement starts to fizzle. For a few this tends to be a yearly pattern. So what is the key? Your standards could be the missing link to achieving your goals year after year.
So let’s shift our thoughts and plans from setting goals to raising our standards.

Have you ever started an exercise routine and quit shortly after, telling yourself you’d get back into it eventually? What about a household project that you’ve procrastinated and justified because the holiday season is coming and you have shopping to do? The one thing that could be holding you back from your goals could be something you aren’t even consciously aware of. We do this on a daily basis. We make excuses!

At some point in your career, you will be faced with the challenge of overcoming resistance. It’s that moment when there are a hundred things going on and you need more than 24 hours in a day to finish them all. It becomes harder to stay focused and the urge to quit grows stronger. It can throw you off-track at any moment.
