Tonight I’ll be flying to Greece for a perfectly timed vacation. I’ll return to the USA on Labor Day. I mention this for two reasons:
First, I won’t have my usual blog for the time I’m away, and secondly, all of us are looking forward to this coming Labor Day weekend. We love holidays don’t we?
I can’t help but compare this to the importance of goal setting. Goals drive us, inspire us and (should) get us excited. This is why it’s in our best interest to set short and long term goals because we always need something to look forward to.

I disagree. You don’t need a “higher” goal necessarily but you do need goals in general. If you always wanted to go see Foamhenge (click here, it’s wicked cool), well that’s a goal that can bring joy, but it’s not bigger than buying your dream home.
Set both large and small goals and in various categories. Whether it’s a must see movie you want to rent on a rainy night, taking guitar lessons or getting a new car, let those goals drive you and excite you. If you always have something to look forward to the letdown you might feel after a holiday weekend might not matter as much. Because there’s more where that came from!
I challenge you to write out 100 goals scattered across the following categories:
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
