When the rubber hits the road

We’re a few days into the new year. It’s time for the real work to begin and to get serious about what we want to accomplish. It’s time to ask ourselves: How we’re going to make the goals become reality? What steps are we willing to make them happen? What’s our plan?

I had a basketball coach once who came to practice every day and repeated one simple phrase: “With hard work, discipline, and a plan, we can make anything happen.” Sure enough, he turned a crazy bunch of kids, who had never won anything before, into a winning team.

The rubber is most certainly hitting he road. What are you doing about the goals you’re working to achieve in 2023?

  1. Love these, Brian! Hard to believe we’re already a week into the new year. And next thing we know, it’ll be halfway over. The time to work toward our goals is now. Thank you for the great reminder and quotes!

  2. That Dr. Seuss is such a classic read whenever anyone moves ahead in life! I’m not a firm believer in actively setting goals Brian. In the past there’s always been something to achieve or accomplish or change or rectify and now that I’m retired I’m embracing more of the concept that if something is of interest I will put myself out there and be open to it and engage with it, but as I said in my last post, I also keep the attitude C’est la vie! So I suppose my goals going forward, not just for 2023 are to experience what I can and move on from what I can’t.
    Where do you want this year to lead for you?

    1. Oh, come on Deb, you think I’m on the ball? Forget it. I just ask the questions! Ha, ha. No, that’s a really good question. I need to work on my health a bit and get back to a regular exercise program! I want to continue to post frequently on my blog and work and finish a novel. I want to be there for my wife and kids however they need me. I want to figure out my work situation … a little too much stress to my liking. And finally I want to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. That’s not too much to ask for and plan for, don’t you think? Ha, ha!

      1. I like to ask questions Brian- curious by nature perhaps! All very reasonable and doable goals I think. Best of luck especially with the novel 🙂
