Sometimes we feel the steps we take towards reaching our goals are not big enough. We are quite demanding and strive for more. More and better. While it’s good to be ambitious, it is also important we set up realistic and reachable goals.
But what does it mean that the goal is realistic? Well, it only means you shouldn’t be planning on becoming a data architect if you’re not computer literate. On the other hand, strive for something more than just a low hanging fruit. If your objectives are easily reachable then you will definitely lose interest in achieving them. You will simply get bored. And then again, obtaining a “piece of cake” will not make you happy and fulfilled. At least not this cake! So be objective and reach out for something that is a challenge for you.
