The Oh Shit Goal

December 01, 20222 min read

The OH SHIT goal...

I have been thinking alot about goals, aka planned accomplishments and I realized that there are many layers and levels to goal setting.

There's the basic goal. It's easy to accomplish, you can do this with your eyes closed.

There's the comfort zone goal... it's also easy to accomplish, but this is pretty much where we live because we are comfortable here.

Then there's the OH SHIT goal... this is the goal that would be life changing. You would find yourself saying "OH SHIT, this is AMAZING, I did it!"

Here's what I notice though... We live somewhere between the basic goal and our comfort zone goal. We hustle and grind to stay in our comfort zone and we may even find ourselves slipping a little because we get complacent. So we go back to hustling to maintain the comfort zone. Our comfort zone is so comfortable that we are afraid to get out of it. Big, bold and scary things can happen outside of our comfort zone and so we say we want that Oh Shit goal, but the reality is... we are comfortable right where we are.

So here's where I want to shake things up a bit. Are you ready?

What if we take the 'basic' goal off the table? Bye bye basic!

Our comfort zone goal now becomes the basic goal.

The Oh shit goal becomes our new COMFORT ZONE goal.

And we add a new level, what I like to call the WHAT THE EFF goal.

What would that look like for you? How would that change your approach to goal setting/ planned accomplishments?

If you want to get a different result, you have to be willing to try something different. Rather than sit in your complacent, stale and stagnant comfort zone, I really want to encourage you to dream BIGGER.

You are capable. You are smart. You know what needs to be done. But the FEAR of failure or even success is keeping you from moving forward towards your goals and dreams.

Every day, we have the opportunity to make decisions based on where we want to be, instead of where we currently are.

Every day, we have to DECIDE to move forward, to take the next step.

Every day, someone's dream is coming true, and yours can too.

Now here's the big question... what are you gonna do about it?

Day One, or One Day... You decide.
