I'm about to take 3 days off work next week and don't feel much like working today as it is my last day.  Is it important for my to pump myself up and be motivated or is it OK to just slide into this time off?

Yesterday I already took an unplanned day off in that I had some work related things to do and didn't do them.  In general I'm not too concerned.  I think I mentioned before that I accept that progress is not always a straight shot from where we are to where we want to go.  I accept that the path will have ups and downs.

If we truly accept this, it is hard to know if the current situation is one of the downs or if it is a slide back in to previous patterns.  One example I can pull from my past is I can remember clearly when I was working towards achieving a very high certification level in computer networking called CCIE.  I had taken classes and was studying regularly for several months, I forget how many months.

I remember that a few months before I was scheduled to take the certification test, I lost my motivation and stopped practicing and learning.  I guess I burned out on the topic.  I ended up take several weeks off from the topic.  Part of my was concerned because I was pretty sure that without additional practice it would be difficult for me to pass the test, though there wasn't much I could do to motivate myself to resume studying.

Then, I don't remember exactly what happened, though a few weeks before the test, I decided I might as well put the effort in to have a good showing at the test.  The last few weeks before the test I put effort into reviewing all the material, this was not cramming as I had already many months of study, it was just solidifying what I had already been studying and finding out any weaknesses and filling them in.

In the end I was able to pass the test on the first try which is not normal, so I'm quite happy with the result.  The lesson I take from this is that it is OK to take some time off as long as we are still aware of our goal and know that at a point in the future we will have to resume working towards the goal.

My goals are still clear to me.  I still write out my goals from scratch 3-5 days per week.  I still reflect here 3-5 days per week.  For me, those are the most important goals for the rest of the year.  The rest it is OK if I take a few days off, I mean even goof off during working hours for a couple of days.

For far too long, consultants, trainers, gurus and leaders have been misleading us about goal setting. We keep hearing the same myth that people with written goals achieve greater success in life. I fell afoul of this story myself - after all, it came from the pages of a famous author and I've seen it repeated again and again - most recently in an article published by the Professional Golfers Association. The trouble is that this story becomes linked with the concept of setting SMART goals, for which there is some evidence, but written goals? So, I felt that it was time to set the record a little straighter and based on just a little bit of real research... let's find out if there's any truth that goal setting makes a difference.
