We have all done this. We plan something, we think it will go one way and it doesn’t.
We got are married to a potential outcome. I am saying we need to have a divorce with any and all potential outcomes.
This is why we have running shoes but don’t go running. We married the perfect potential of the shoes, when we should have married the behaviors and lifestyles of being healthy. Then we can let go of “perfection.”
Same for money. Same for relationships.
This doesn’t mean ditch goals, I think it means that hitting goals is a balance of effort and enjoying the moment by letting go of what we think should happen. I think it also shows just how limited our minds can be.
