Building in a 'Margin of Error' / Under Promise Yourself so you can Over Deliver!
While we know 100% perfection is unobtainable, we continue to set goals that involve 100% effort. When in reality, AIMING for an 80-90% 'on-track' regimen is actually far more realistic; as it leaves a 'margin for error' and is a more wholesome way to stick to your goals.
Speaking of the word 'error', while that is goal-speak for the workplace - in your own mind: start working to remove that negative self-talk from your mind. When things don't go as plan, they aren't 'bad', it isn't an 'error'. As long as your goals include that realistic margin - things that aren't planned popping up are actually PART of the plan!
Remember to aim high, fail forward, and pat yourself on the back for each small success. After you get those elements on track it's very simple. Just rinse and repeat again and again - until you're at your goal!
Here's to staying motivated, on track and keep moving forward at 80% capacity!
