  1. Great point about the “pass/fail” mentality. So many lessons can be learned when things go in a direction other than what we had planned. These are the experiences that lead to wisdom. We really can’t avoid pitfalls, even if we never try to do anything. Better to embrace the journey and stay humble as we keep putting one foot in front of the other.

  2. For sure. I struggled with that for a long, long time. God has had to do a lot of work in me to where I can finally celebrate my little wins. You’re right–not everything is black or white when we’re setting goals! The real question is, “Are we making progress?”

  3. Mistake #3 stands out especially to me: “We view our goals as pass or fail.” That’s a great point. Not everything is all yes or all no, black or white. There are shades of succeed within our goal, and any progress can be counted as a win. Thanks for sharing these!

  4. Oh yes… how I can relate to the battle with perfectionism! I really think the progress not perfection concept can set us free to grow without the pass/fail constraints we put on ourselves as perfectionists.

  5. Yes, Hannah, it’d totally agree! It’s so much easier to just plow forward and not intentionally consider what big lessons we learned from the last year. I’m glad you enjoyed the tips! Happy New Year to you!

  6. You are so right, Alicia! One of the hardest things about setting goals is remembering to look back first! I sometimes forget to really evaluate what worked and what didn’t with my goals, and I paid for it later! Thanks for the great tips!

  7. I’m so glad to hear this! I agree–putting this post together has given me a new exciting focus on how to set goals. I’m so glad it blessed you! Thanks for sharing.
