Side effect of having a goal

Goals are helpful. We get things done when we have them.

And the side effect? By having a “to-do”, we automatically have a million “not do”s.

Goals provide focus. Instead of starting a new project every time I walk into my craft room, my goals last year helped me finish the ones I’d started. This year – no goal and the room is an explosion of fabric pieces in some stage of an uncompleted craft project.

Focus is tough. Without a goal, it’s impossible.
