19. How to Avoid Being Overwhelmed by Your Goals

As a high achiever, you probably start every year with a solid list of goals. You’re focused, and you’re ready to achieve. But as time wears on, you realize you can’t keep every project moving at the same rate. By mid-year, you realize it’s too late to make progress on most of your goals. 

That’s frustrating! You might even wonder, Am I just trying to do too much?
