Tough (Question) Tuesday: Is this the real goal or do you want to do it because you feel that you should?


You guessed it – it’s yet ANOTHER weekly installment! And stop your crying – these won’t replace my longer posts. I think, though, it’s a great way to get you more information in a more concise way (if I do say so myself).

I’ve written 1 post thus far that was short, sweet, and to the point. It had 1 question, phrased to make you think – and maybe shake things up a bit. The post was really the most effective post for me, and encouraged me to have a major turn-things-on-their-head conversation with my husband where we faced some scary truths. Tough (Question) Tuesday is going to follow that lead.

I think tomorrow I’m going to expand upon my SMART goals post (they’re really popping up in different ways for me this week), so think about the goal(s) you’re currently working on. Got it/them? Now ask yourself this:

Is this the real goal or do you want to do it because you feel that you should?

If the answer is even a little bit of the “should”, even if it’s 5% “should”, ask yourself this:

When is it time to do something for you and not for others that expect certain things of you?
