313. Gary Keller on Goals, Habits, and Thinking Big

Aug 23, 2021 | 0 comments

At last year’s Goal Setting Retreat, Gary Keller said this: “If you have big goals and you haven’t achieved them yet, there are only two reasons that you’re where you are instead of where you want to be: it’s either the actions you took or the relationships you have.” And he’s right.

Think about the habits, the choices, and the relationships that got you to where you are today. Now think about what you may be missing in order to achieve growth and pursue bigger goals.
