Hitting a target is something we all want in our lives. No matter what we think, we all have a target we want to achieve or surpass.
A goal weight, a personal best on the bike or on the track, a better weight on the bench press. Or even a new top score on Pac Man. They are all achievable targets if we set our minds to the task.
But then, should we always be shooting for new goals and targets? Are we settling our goals too high? And are we setting ourselves up for failure?
Perhaps every so often we should go with the flow and take it easy and cut ourselves a break. We can’t always be at our very best, no matter how hard we try.
So when we see an opportunity to do what we enjoy, sports or play we don’t need to bust a gut to get another personal best.
Enjoy the moment when you can, as it may not always be there.
