They say a ship without a rudder is lost at sea. What’s the rudder we need in our personal and professional lives to steer us in the direction that aligns with our deepest wants and desires?
Connecting to your wants or desires is where it starts. For me, I’ve found making the connection inspires a stretch goal. It guides focus, triggers new behaviors, and sustains momentum. Here’s what I did...
My audio book conversion
I’ve always loved books. But the literary escape and ongoing learning they provide was colliding with my desire to de-clutter and minimize… and books take up space! 📚
I was intrigued hearing the experience of colleagues who were enjoying audio books. One of them kindly gifted me three audio book credits to try out. 🎁
It was awkward at first. I missed the feel of a book, the ability to fold a corner, or mark a page. Being visual, I enjoyed seeing a vivid turn of phrase on the page that would leave an indelible impression. I wondered I would experience through a book delivered by a narrator’s voice. 🎤
My stretch goal
To truly embrace my desired goal, I had to fully commit to audio books – so I set a goal of “consuming” one per month. (BTW, does someone have a better word for audio book “reading”?) 🤔
The first month was uncomfortable, much like any new undertaking. I reached out to my audio book fans for advice. With their insights and enthusiasm, I eventually cracked the secret to really enjoying my monthly audio-read.
YOUR stretch goal
In this month’s blog, I share insights about setting and reaching any stretch goal you set, whether in your own personal life or your business.🎯 Because I’ve found that a stretch goal can open a world of possibilities… that is both freeing and satisfying.

It might just be the solution to free you from frustration, indecision, inconsistency or fears that delay your launch forward in the right direction. What do you have to lose? And what business “want” or “desire” can be unleashed? Let’s find out.
