Whether the end goal is to complete a marathon or lose 10 pounds, there are smaller goals to complete along the journey. Every time we complete that next “mini-goal” in service of the larger picture, we learn to believe even more in ourselves and in our abilities. Goals also serve to keep us accountable and responsible for our own decisions; YOU set the goal and YOU take the action.
