Between saying and doing there is a great distance. ~ Unknown
Have you ever heard the phrase “Big hat, no cattle?” It refers to someone who talks big but has no substance to them or never follows through on their promises.
With the advent of the new year, many people have made big resolutions. As I was contemplating my “leftover goals” from last year, I realized that they were the same leftover goals from the year before that and the year before that, etc. Upon further reflection, I realized that I hadn’t taken any serious action toward completing those goals. I was all talk and no action.
This year, I’ve changed my focus to creating healthy habits and routines instead of creating resolutions. If I focus on the actions, then I will ultimately achieve the goals I set for myself every year at this time.
Do you have “leftover goals” that need to be reframed?
