When Goal Setting Goes Wrong…

If anyone tells you that goal-setting is useless, just punch them right in the mouth…


Then, pick them up, close your eyes and wait for their return blow.

Don’t ever  think that nothing can sideline the goals that you set. There is always something.

Over the past ten days, my “something” has been amazing back pain. This may be all that I can write today–because the pain is unbelievable–but, I’m bound and determined to write something.

And that’s what writing is…WRITING SOMETHING.

This upcoming week will be spent working with a chiropractor. His sole job is to get me into a pain-free-upright-position, so that I can finish my work.

Right now, I’m going to sign-off, and lie in a hot epsom salt bath, before slathering my back in Icy Hot, taking some of my “herbal” pain reliever, and lying horizontally for the next twelve hours.

Still, through all of this, I hold my goals close to my heart. I will achieve them. I’ll just have to push everything back a couple of weeks.

I’ll be back…It’s just not today.

One thought on “When Goal Setting Goes Wrong…

  1. One step at a time. Even a baby step counts. I just read something recently that helps me put things in perspective.
    Yard by yard is hard, but
    Inch by inch is a cinch.
