This post was inspired by a reminder in the book You Are A Badass At Making Money:
Decide on a bottom line – Jen Sincero
You have no idea how many times I have gone into meltdown over thinking I’ve not made or done enough only for it to actually be quite a lot more than my absolute baseline goal.
Every single month, no matter what type of goal, I have a baseline goal, a core goal and a stretch goal.
So this is actually an action I’ve done for a few years now but wanted to share with you because of how many times it has stopped me panicking.
While you want to be thinking bigger, this bottom line is there to help set a non-negotiable.
If you’ve only got a week left of the month and you’ve not hit this, you know EXACTLY how far off you are and can focus on what needs to be done to get there rather than sitting and dwelling over the figures.
