In addition to what I tweeted last week, I have a few other thoughts in the wake of the news stories.
The quote "you are pure potential" inspires me to connect to the part of me that feels infinite.
While this is beautiful in theory, the idea of potential is also part of a paradox. The flip side of those warm, anticipatory feelings are feelings of dread and anxiety. How could this be? Well, that's the subject of today's video.
That voice bummed me out. It didn't change my actions—I still showed up for my morning and afternoon meditations—but it led to feelings of frustration. Not just with my past self for not having started sooner, but also with my present self for not being further along—even though that was an impossible ask. I was where I was.
By being a little more specific about the kinds of goals we are setting, we can start to act more intentionally. In particular, there are three kinds of goals worth paying attention to throughout your test prep process.
Today's video is about clarifying the three different kinds of goals that you set. Having clearly identified the three kinds of goals, you can start to see how they interact with each other and begin to use all three more effectively. Perhaps, you'll see how one kind of goal in particular has tripped you up in the past or how you need to start rebalancing the three different types of goals.
