Be judicious in what you choose to take on; if it doesn’t fit in the outline of your goals, you probably shouldn’t do it. You’ll end up with a lot of things you just aren’t doing, but now, you can feel good about not doing them.
from “Outline Your Life”
This is unequivocally true because success is by definition to achieve some goal. A goal is something that is set or accepted by you. Therefore, you decide what it means to succeed.
If you have set impossibly high goals, fail to achieve them, and are a miserable as a result, consider adjusting your goal, at least for now. If the goal was set externally by someone else, and your failure to achieve it keeps you up at night, you’re not off the hook — you accepted and internalized that goal. You can just as easily renegotiate that goal — if you are willing to work at that.
