If You Completely Ignored Your Goals and Focused on This One Thing Would You Get Better Results?
For most of my life I have considered “goals" as "wishful thinking”.
If I’m honest I never really set them (in the past). Then a few years ago when the running bug bit me, I started setting goals - run my first half marathon, run my first full marathon, run my first ultra marathon, run my first Comrades. All huge goals at the time - and ones which kept me focussed and (somewhat) obsessed.
But the “fear” of missing the goals made me implement systems to train by: regular training times, routines, distance and time targets, shooting for PBs, deciding to enter every race I can, tracking every mile on my running app, regularly analysing this data and of course spending time discerning the difference between running folklore and my own personal experience.
So when I read James Clear’s fantastic post on the subject of goals vs systems, it really struck a chord with me. I really can wholeheartedly recommend reading this post (and many others of his): If You Completely Ignored Your Goals and Focused on This One Thing Would You Get Better Results? - James Clear
