Why you should only give time frames to quantifiable goals that can be measured, but not to goals with lots of unknowns such as figuring out your business model for a company you built from scratch, meeting the woman of your dreams, getting your dream woman to fall in love with you or wanting to be in an exclusive relationship with you, etc.
Why becoming attached to time or timeframes, realistic or not, will create tremendous and unnecessary suffering in your life when things don’t fall into place or go according to plan.
“Every day is an opportunity to make your life the way you want it to be. Anything is possible when you work toward it, one day at a time. Skip a day, and you lose momentum. Try to do it all at once, and you burn out. Steadily, consistently work, making every day count, and you will reach your goals. Today is a chance to grow – to do a little bit more than you did yesterday, a little bit better, a little bit more effectively. Anyone can do a little more, learn a little more, and grow a little more each day. Soon, with consistent effort, those “little bits” add up to major accomplishments. Is there something you want to change? Today is the day to start changing it. Is there a new customer you want to land? Today is the day to start making it happen. Do you need to lose weight? Today is the day to start doing it. Not next Monday or next month – today. You deserve to reach your goals as soon as possible. Control today and you control your life.” ~ Ralph Marston
