For fulfillment fanatics interested in traveling deliriously, living deliberately, and working virtually.

Leaving a Goal Alone

NVR Guys

We were on a run last month, talking about fine-tuning our work schedule. We're trying to both honor the flexibility we have in our schedule and not get ourselves into situations that make it easy to overwork. We're good at overworking – especially when we're in Seattle.

As maximization and fulfillment fanatics, we have these conversations quite often. We set a lot of high targets, and we tweak a lot of the targets we've set. We're often successful; we're sometimes not.

When we're successful, we sometimes have a problem "being" with the success. We don't give the goal or its attainment any breathing room. We briskly move on to setting another goal.

Zipping past Seattleites taking in the last of summer on that run, we acknowledged that our general work schedule and productivity are in a great place right now. Rather than push it even more, we decided to let it be – to let it be solid for a while. No tweaking, no cramming more productivity into less time. 

Sometimes success isn't about pushing forward; rather, it's about letting things be.
