SWITCHING FOCUS – Achieving Goals

Running the last kilometre or so of a run last week, not feeling my best due to a few days of bad eating and poor sleep routines.

I was on a long straight heading back toward my starting point on the long ‘street light corridor’. Feeling as I was, the end of the straight seemed like it would never be manageable or achievable, however it did give me something to aim for, an incentive of sorts.

This made me think about goals and achievements in general. If you fix your gaze too much on the end goal when you’re at the start of a journey, then there’s a chance that the goal may seem unattainable and overwhelming.

However, as long as you make cursory glances at the end goal but switch your focus back to the here and now regularly then the end goal seems more manageable. There’s even a chance that the journey will itself will engross you so much, that before you know it the end goal will be upon you in no time – you might even enjoy it!
