The difference between goals and systems

Goals are good to have, but they're easy to lose track off. This article from James Clear explains how you can work towards your goal by focusing on a system.

When you focus on the practice instead of the performance, you can enjoy the present moment and improve at the same time.

One goal of mine is to walk the Triple Crown of Hiking. By doing short distance walks on a weekly basis, I have a system in place that trains my walking muscles. It also has some nice, extra benefits:

  • I'm discovering a lot of lovely places nearby (check my Instagram account for more pictures)
  • I'm spending quality time with my fiancee
  • It's a great way to clear your head
