Lesson 2 The Drift

 

Lesson 2 – The Drift

 

Moving away from our goals is one of the most common problems successful people face. We can become distracted from our goals by taking on too much, losing motivation, or putting off tasks. To avoid drifting and getting discouraged, we must acknowledge that we are drifting and identify the reasons for doing so. Todd offers up a few examples of how people can identify when they’re drifting, including keeping track of personal goals, setting priorities, and remaining motivated.

 

Sometimes it can be tough to stay on the right course, but it’s important to realize that it’s natural to lose focus sometimes. We’re not perfect, and life’s complicated enough without worrying about everything else that’s going on around us. When you set a goal, it’s crucial to consider that you might face challenges along the way. And when you come across one, just remember to push past them because even the most difficult ones become more manageable once you accept that they’re inevitable. For example, if you’re trying to get in shape, keep in mind that it might take 90 days instead of 30. That will probably make your goal seem more achievable than if you had only allotted yourself 30 days from the start.

 

Establish A Course

 

Suppose you don’t know where you’re going. What should you do? This is a tough time, and there are many ways to make it easier. Before he begins his teaching in this new course, Todd mentions that you need to establish your course for your life. This way, when you have a little bit of time, you can correct yourself when your path has diverged from your original goal.
