After 15 years without a cuppa Joe, I started drinking it again this year. Why on earth would I give it up for so long and what does this have to do with goals?
Well, I’ve been on quite the journey with an autoimmune condition that emerged in my early 20’s and I’ve tried just about everything – from conventional to holistic treatments – to help my body and health be at its optimum.
So I decided to stop drinking coffee for my health.
At first, as a Starbucks aficionado, it felt hard. But, after a while of staying consistent, my ‘no-cuppa-joe- became my norm, and eventually, it was easy to maintain and got the point where I didn’t even think about *not* having it anymore.
But. I’ve still always loved the smell and ritual of a cuppa. So, since my health has been in a good place for the past decade now, I decided: let’s do it – let’s bring it back.
And damn, is it delicious! It’s now one of my favorite parts of the day (and doesn’t negatively impact on my health).
Sometimes when we have goals, at first the journey to getting there can seem arduous and filled with tasks you don’t want to do.
Sometimes the journey to achieving your goals can seem arduous and filled with tasks you don’t want to do (and find every excuse to avoid).
But then, somewhere along the way of staying consistent with your goal achievement process, things become second nature, and eventually, the effort those tasks once required no longer takes much, or any, effort to maintain at all.
And before you know it, you’re achieving your goals everyday 🥳
So, if you’ve got:
– a looming to-do list,
– a big scary goal you wanna hit,
– or you’re just overwhelmed with all the stuff you need to do,
then focus on finding the best systems and process that fit with your temperament,
and get yourself some support (accountability) so you can stay consistent.
I have full faith that you too get to a place where the effort is so minimal, you won’t even realise you’re doing it.
Cheers ☕️☕️ to that!
