Set impossible goals
It’s not enough to set a goal. I think you have to set an impossible goal. Impossible in the sense that it goes beyond what you should be doing, but also is somewhat achievable. In order to be great, you have to set the bar beyond yourself. You have to imagine that you’ll grow and evolve in the process. You have to believe that you will be successful.
I’ll go back to SpaceX and Musk going beyond just starting a rocket company. The impossible goal is to have a transport system for the whole solar system. It’s impossible - until it is. And I think that’s the saying that you have to live by if you want to achieve something great.
This series of content is a small experiment. I pledged to create a piece of content on my site for the next 365 days. You can read the opening post here. The posts aren’t limited to thoughts or ideas, they’re really just a way for me to create original content. If you got any feedback/questions, please reach out. Thanks for looking.
