From Point A to Point B – Goal Setting
From Point A to Point B
My cars been acting up, so I had to take it to the mechanic to get it fixed.
On my way home I had a major realization based on a simple premise.
I decided to just start walking home, which is about a 25 minute walk from point a to point b.
I could have called a friend and waited on a ride, but if so then the variable of time was no longer in my control. My ride could have got there in 10 minutes and I could have made it home in 15 minutes, my ride could have pulled up in an hour and I would have got home in an hour and fifteen minutes, or even worse my ride could have never showed up–in which I would have waited for nothing!
The variable of control would have no longer been in my hands to accomplish my goal.
Now I know I could have jogged home or ran home which would have taken less than 25 minutes, but I did not have the energy to do so today.
The point is if you just take off on a goal that you have set, you will more than likely get there at a quicker pace than if you wait around for something — a friend, a coworker, a significant other, someone to double check your work etc.
Go ahead and get on your way from point A to point B and learn from the mistakes/failures on the way.
