“If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it.” By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“There’s no shame in not meeting all of our goals, as long as our goals make us stretch. If we want to run a marathon in under 3 hours, we’ll train differently than if we want to run it in 4 hours. Maybe we won’t finish in 3 hours, but we’ll likely do better than if we were striving for 4.
This doesn’t mean we should set goals that are impossible. If we do, there’s a good possibility that we will become frustrated and quit.
I will set realistic goals that challenge me and try hard to meet them. Maybe, just maybe, I will achieve these goals. If I don’t, I will still have done well.” Linda Picone
