When most people think about giving themselves goals, they give themselves the easiest goals imaginable. The goals may be, “writing 1 blog post every week that is only 100 words,” or something similar. While it is good that progress is being made, it is easily possible to make more progress. In order to make more progress, you need to set the bar higher.
When people think of setting the bar higher, they quickly think of reasons why the bar is already set as high as possible. There is no limit to how high any bar can be set. If a bar is set at 14.6 feet, know that it can also go to 15 feet. The bar can keep on going higher and higher.
As you set the bar higher and higher for yourself, you will be giving yourself challenging goals. However, when those goals get accomplished, you will see the results. You will be able to do something far better than ever before. You will be able to break records, be very productive, and ultimately be better off.
Setting the bar high requires work on your part. After that work gets done, you will have the prize: a new record, incredible productivity, a big increase in traffic, a lot of sales for your new product, or something else.
