Setting Stretch Goals (CM009)

We’ve all set New Year’s resolutions that we knew, deep down, we wouldn’t keep. It’s easy to assume the goals you set to quit sugar or go running every day were just too hard and that’s why you didn’t achieve them. But what if, actually, they weren’t challenging enough? Or they didn’t challenge you in a way that energized and motivated you to step outside of your comfort zone and achieve real changes?

Stretch goals are all about pushing yourself to achieve things that you aren’t currently capable of. They demand that you take risks, gain new skills, and change how you normally work.
