103. Standards and Goals

Goals are something worth striving for. 

To wake up early, make x amount a month, read this many pages

Standards are a level of quantity we have with ourselves

I’m never late, I always try my best, I control what I can control, I don’t talk behind people’s backs.   

And standards are formed by keeping the promises we make to ourselves

So if we take a second to think about it…

we can set all the goals we want 

But when 6:00 rolls around and we hit the snooze button 10 times… 

We’re clearly not achieving our goal. 

So instead – by focusing on our standards, we can become more prepared to achieve our goals. 

“I always wake up at 6”

We may have a goal problem 

Or we may have a standard problem

Either way, I’ll take all of the help I can get.
