Goals: Committed or Convenient

Are your life goals ones that you are committed to, or ones that are convenient to hold?
Recently I became acquainted with a master brand strategist, Lou Rubin, Managing Partner of OutGrowth Consulting.  He told me he rode his bike to the office each day.  He lives in New York City.  A few days after our meeting, he sent me a photo of Central Park on a beautiful spring day. 

Upon receiving the photo I assumed Lou only rides on days when the weather cooperated. I know those are the only days I would ride my bike in New York City. I shared my assumption with Lou.  Lou’s response was to send me the photo on this blog! 

That caused me think about the different between goals we achieve and goals we do not achieve.  I suspect we achieve more of the goals we are committed to than those goals that are just goals of convenience. 

What do you think?  What has been your experience? 

Let me know.  Thank you, Andrea
