It’s better to make progress than to meet a goal.
You will tell me, there are goals, that need to be done, to make other goals start.
Let’s break this down.
Goal: Buy $35 shoes to use on exercises to make progress toward living a healthy life.
- Wait for $35.
- Use that $35 to buy shoes.
- Use the bought shoes for running.
- Make progress toward living a healthy life.
Progress: While waiting to get paid $35, why not borrow shoes from a friend.
Start running and make progress toward living a healthy life.
When the money comes, buy the shoes, and meet the goal.
