Goal setting is an art. Too low and I’ll never reach my potential. Too high and failure will bring frustration. How do I set mine right?
Thank God for grocery store tabloid racks. Doing research, I learned David Beckham is People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive. The soccer star was just 10 when the magazine named Mel Gibson its first ever Sexiest Man 30 years ago.
If People had objective criteria, I’d have won every year. But no. Staff starts by asking whose cover picture will sell the most magazines. Who has a film coming out that will buy an ad spread? Who will grant us exclusive interviews?
Go ahead, Mel, George Clooney, Brad Pitt ... sell your souls for sham affirmation like that. Not me!
