Do you need a timeline for your goal or not…

When it comes to goals, sometimes we do need timeframes, but not always…  Sometimes it is better to just focus on constant improvement, constant progress. Some people say the pressure of timelines helps them get into action and achieve, but this is not the case for everyone. It depends on what you are doing.

When what you are doing is creative or not linear in nature, the artificial pressure of a constructed timeline can sabotage our creativity and actually erode our confidence in what we are doing.

I encourage you to think about whether you need timelines or not for what you are doing and don’t just assume you need them. Perhaps you just need guidelines, focus and sustained action…without always having to know how long the journey will take.
