In swimming, in school, in our careers, and in our lives, we are constantly advised to set goals for ourselves and to lay out the steps to reach those goals. At the same time, we’re also advised to see the journey – our daily “practice” as being more important than reaching the goal.
What we don’t always consider is what happens when we REACH a goal. What does it mean to accomplish what you set out to do? Are you finished? Are you complete? How do you figure out where to go and what comes next? How do you shift gears…and goals…to get to a new level?
