I am a major list maker and goal setter. A major component of my day is adding to and marking complete items on my never ending to-do list, and I not-so-secretly love it! 🙂 I also keep a Google doc of weekly and monthly goals, with deadlines and bullet points of what it will take to accomplish each goal–though, this document is constantly evolving–some goals have been on there for years, while some I just take off completely if they do not interest me any longer. Can anyone else relate?
Amidst all my goal setting and list mania, I have realized lately that these ideas can weigh me down, making me feel less accomplished or unfulfilled if I do not meet a goal deadline, or keep pushing that one pesky item to next week on my list. With this in mind, I found this quote from Osho to be helpful in renewing my mindset. Goals and lists are awesome and super useful, but perhaps we just don’t have to take them so seriously–how we are living today is what matters and what is beautiful. It is not always about becoming, but rather being.
I hope this quote speaks to you as well–in whatever manner is most fitting for your life right now! Please download the desktop version to give yourself a little extra dose of inspiration!
