Why You Need a Big Hairy Audacious Goal

The minute you create a “Big Hairy Audacious Goal” the path doesn’t open up magically, the stars don’t align, and everything doesn’t fall into place.
I have found it is quite the opposite…

The minute you create and declare your BHAG, you are confronted with all the ways you are NOT already following that goal.

In fact all those tough areas have a flashlight shined on them and they rise to the top.
You first notice all the things that must change and that can be frustrating, overwhelming, and can downright piss you off (I know it has for me in the past).
Yet, when your focus is on doing the things in your life that bring you inspiration and joy, the other things don’t seem to matter quite as much.
The frustrations, headaches, and obstacles that overwhelm you take a backseat because it’s in front of the backdrop of you doing what you love…

YOU, doing what inspires YOU.
