Micro-goals is Colm O'Regan's new word. Or sort of a word.
‘They’ are talking more about it these days. If you Google “microgoals”, it pops up a lot in articles about wellness. But don’t let that put you off. It’s just a simple breaking down of big goals into small steps that are achievable. We’re talking about common-sense wellness here. Not Gwyneth Paltrow ‘shove-bauxite-up-your-hoop’ kind of thing.
It’s presumably aimed at people with long-term goals in life, five-year plans and the like. I gave all that kind of thing up a long time ago. There was too much disappointment. I write my five-year plans at the end of the five years and, like a government rating itself, I’ve pretty much achieved all of my targets.
But I do need micro-goals. Take the simple task of tidying up.
