What's the Problem with Goals?

By Professor Beane

Have you ever been so close to achieving your goals only to fall short at the last minute and feel like a failure? Of course, and if your goal setting system does not allow for adaptability or take life into account, you may feel like a failure. That is far from the truth.

Let’s get one thing out of the way first. I am a firm believer in having goals to help you achieve more in life. What I am saying is that our current way of thinking about goals and how to achieve them is outdated. S.M.A.R.T.

Goals were fine for the time. However, we know so much more now. I think we need to implement lessons we have learned since this framework was introduced.

Please allow me to first detail what S.M.A.R.T Goals are before I calmly dismantle that way of thinking for you.

S – Specific

M – Measurable

A – Attainable

R – Relative

T – Time Specific

This goal setting method has been around for a while and for the time it was wonderful. However, we have learned so much since it was introduced. Many of us have used this method in the past, and most still use this as the standard method for thinking about our goals. This seems all well and good right?

Well, not quite. This framework is more a way to think about milestones, not actual goals. This system has some flaws. Setting goals that don’t push your comfort zone means aiming for what’s already within reach. This won’t foster personal growth or take you beyond your current limits. Not to mention if you fall just short of reaching your goal, YOU’RE NOT A FAILURE.

You’re definitely better off than if you hadn’t pursued your goal at all, right? But when looked at through the eyes of this system you failed, all because you strived to reach something that was beyond your grasp.

Let’s get to one of my major complaints with this method. How does this system actually help to propel you toward achieving your goal? FULL ARTICLE

Zoey - Age 13

I have been doing martial arts at Tri-Star for almost 8 years now. I started at Tri-Star because I thought that karate was cool.

Being in karate has taught me discipline and self-defense. I have also made some really great friends over the years.

My goal is to continuing learning self-defense, how to defend others.

My school goals are to maintain my grades to get into a good college. I want to work with animals as a veterinarian or a veterinary biomedical engineer.

The most important thing I’ve learned from my instructors is, if you keep working on something even though it seems too difficult, it will eventually work out.

Ten Thousand Conversations!

How many teaching conversations must we have with our children (if we want them to develop into happy, confident, capable young adults)?

Ten Thousand. 

Why so many?

Because negativity, peer pressure, self-doubt, fear, and many, many other types of temptations, types of darkness, are speaking to your child all the time.

About the Ten Thousand Conversations:  You might have a few, look at what’s going on, and say,

‘Gee, that didn’t seem to have any effect.’

And then, you might stop having them.

Mistake.

There is a reason why it’s ten thousand — and not ten.

The Tea Spoon:  Concerning the Ten Thousand Conversations.

‘Feed’ them into your daughter or son with a teaspoon…not a shovel, not a dump truck.

Way to go Kathy!!!
 
“I was pushing 200 pounds at 64 years old. I was limited by the extra weight I was carrying!
 
I watched my daughter lose 50 pounds on this plan. I kept asking her if she thought I could do it.
 
I finally said yes and haven’t looked back! I’m learning so much! I’ve lost 45 pounds and gained more energy! So glad I chose to join this community!”

Good To Know...

Go to Sleep 💤
 
Numerous studies have shown a significant correlation between sleep deprivation and weight gain.
 
Lack of sleep not only affects our hormonal balance but also leads to poor food choices and decreased metabolism.
 
When we are sleep deprived, our body produces more ghrelin – the hormone that stimulates hunger, and less leptin – the hormone that signals fullness.
 
This imbalance makes us crave high-calorie and unhealthy foods, leading to weight gain.
 
Additionally, inadequate sleep negatively affects our metabolism, causing it to slow down and burn fewer calories.
 
So, prioritizing enough sleep is not only crucial for our overall well-being but also plays a significant role in maintaining a healthy weight.
 
So, make sure to get those 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep every night!
