I’m sitting on the fifth floor of our hotel overlooking Lake Champlain in Vermont passing time before my daughter Kim’s big moment. A mile stone she has worked so hard for over the past four years. A capstone to blood, sweat and tears to graduate top of her class. An accomplishment that nobody can ever take away from her again. Kim graduated from University of Vermont with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education and Interventionl, as a father, I could not be happier!
Setting goals, aspirations and milestones for oneself is paramount to your success. Becoming a CEO is not necessarily the ultimate accomplishments either, it is reaching your God-given potential that you should relentlessly pursue.
Life catches up with us at times. Some of us have kids early on in life or get stuck in a menial job that provides comfort and security but not inspiration or defined satisfaction.
No matter where you are in your journey in life, it is never too late to set “SMART” goals for oneself albeit finishing your GED, BS, Masters or PhD degrees. For others, it is less about formal education and more about growing professionally, finding inspiration or giving back to society.
Search deep inside of yourself to find the “ONE THING” that keeps your motor humming and your spirit blazing. Set realistic goals and milestones for yourself. Once you reach a benchmark, take a step back and celebrate the moment.
What are you goals and milestone moments?
