Ep 6: The Hidden Cost of Unmet Goals

When you identify something that you want to change – and then don’t take action or make progress – you start to pay a sort of psychic tax.

Not only do you still have this unmet goal/desire, but you also have the added discomfort of realizing that you’re not making progress, not converting intention into action.

It’s demoralizing and tiresome to carry around a goal that we never get any closer to achieving. To have a problem that we can’t solve – or one that won’t stay solved. To make the same resolution over and over again.

Not taking action is not a way to “save energy”. It is actually EXHAUSTING to carry around a goal you never get any closer to. A better way to spend your energy is actually taking steps toward achieving your goal.

Key takeaways:

  1. Unmet goals get heavier and heavier the longer you carry them around.
  2. An unmet goal can be a barrier (or an excuse) to achieving other goals
  3. Sometimes, it’s wiser to let a goal go than to continue to pay the “interest”
