As we reach the level of success to attain a goal or to reach a milestone of progress, it is natural to celebrate a bit. Within reason, this is also the point at which the next set of goals and milestones ought to be set for your next productive course. The next challenges and dilemmas will come, we may as well be invested in a goal to determine your way through it.

From goals set and met and desired milestones attained, I have fewer regrets. Looking back to June of 2018, my goal was set to accelerate my own learning and that of others. The vehicle to do this was to be a blog written each weekday related to applied learning. Today is post # 1,215 and I have missed just one weekday over this time period. There has been just under 14,000 “views” of this work from well over 80 different countries during this time. I’m still aiming to accelerate forward and the goal continues to evolve past prior milestones.

On December 27th of 2019, I set a goal to work out for 30+ minutes per day and to burn 700 active calories per day, as tracked on my I-Watch. For 1,161 consecutive days, I have met this goal and evolved a great deal physically and mentally from this concerted effort. Today will be consecutive workout 1,162 and I’ll continue onward, determined to surpass new goals and milestones.

We progress to fulfill our lives with goals and milestones with what matters most to us. They help to chart our own unique course of progressive success and meaning as we learn to fulfill them. The investment made comes to determine our eventual level of contributions made and the earned value we share with others in our lifetime.

Continue on to the next milestone. Enjoy the moments of progress, there is much more to be done.
