The September goal. How big ‘should’ it be? Discussion in my head


I’ve brainstorming and came up with many goals I could do in these 30 days. Most of them are goals with other people involved. Like getting 3 articles published about my shop during the upcoming interior design fair in September, getting 500 new followers on fb and Insta, have a turnover goal and so on.

Finally I decided for something I want to achieve for a long time but never really achieved. Not eating after dinner, not eating after about 19:00 that means. Since I’m not overweight and I’m just eating fruits after dinner I often considered it ‘not important enough’, but always, in the back of my mind I had a thought, that I agree with (!) saying; “After dinner you’re not hungry so you don’t have to eat, and you feel better in the morning when not eating at all after dinner”. I answer that voice in my brain with this challenge.

What I notice is that I like to compare this challenge with other challenges, come up with thoughts like: “this is not good enough, difficult enough, not like writing a book, a publishing an article, or losing x kilo’s'” and so on. “It should me much harder!!’

But since it’s September 1st today and I have to decide; 30 days nothing to eat after dinner. That’s it.

Unint
C. Goal 30 days no eating after dinner
T. This goal is not difficult enough
F. weak, coward-ish
A. Keep considering other goals
R. Not having a goal; Eating tonight after dinner

Int
C. Same
T. Any goal will teach me the skill of perseverance and commitment.
F. Empowered
A. Write down the potential ‘difficult’ days (abroad for business/fair) and write down what I want to think, feel and do in these situations.
R. After 30 days I’ve a new habit; not eating after dinner.

I still consider it a (too) small goal although until now I’ve never been able to realise it!
Isn’t this weird?

Do you have feedback?
