Rather than think about a big new goal for this year, simply think about what you can do for a week straight.
- Think about how you can follow through on something this week as you soak up what’s present. Jon Acuff has a book called FINISH that explains, “the best way to finish a goal is to start.” Jon says the research shows that most people quit after the second day. That’s tomorrow.
- You just need to get through the next three days consistently if you want to build momentum!
- What can you do to ensure you have the energy to finish tomorrow? Put a reminder in your phone. Write out some Bible verses around your house. Put a date on the calendar.
- Ask for a friend to check in on you and hold you accountable. Invite someone to join as you work toward your goal.
- We all want to quit sometimes. Goals are uncomfortable. They force us to do things that aren’t in our normal passion zone.
- You’re not alone!
In Paul’s Second letter to the Corinthians, he said: “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5 (NIV)
