Blue Water Dreaming- Pisces and Goal Setting

by Jo Tracey March 12, 2010 04:47 PM EST

I am totally rubbish at personal goal setting.

There I said it. Yet, I function within a corporate environment and somehow to achieve and exceed objectives every year. I plan projects and facilities moves to the nth degree plotting every task and subtask and dependent task against a critical path of milestones. I help other people set and achieve their personal and career goals. So how is it that I can’t do the same for myself?
With a lot of Pisces and a happy Jupiter I dream big. With a packed 1st house and New Moon energy I start strongly, but tend to move to the next project before the 1st has even begun. It never occurs to me that I can fail, so why is it that I can succeed at work with commitments I make to others and to corporate targets, but have so little respect for my own goals?
So, last week I started to put my money where my mouth is, so to speak- my own little experiment that I am hoping, if proved right, will in true Pisces style lead to something more. I am using my Sun sign to set the goal and my opposite (Virgo) to make it work. The theory is I can dream the dream and then break it down into pieces to get there.
I have set the goal and, surprisingly for me, been fairly real about it. I have planned the steps and actions and am trying not to look past what I need to do on each day. Where I come unstuck is by looking at the horizon & all the pretty & distracting fish & alternative destinations along the way. I forget about the ocean in the middle... and before I know it, I am 6 months (a year, whatever) down the track, and my horizon is still as far away.
This is all stuff that other people (particularly Earth signs) might find to be just plain common sense. Indeed, it is how I work in the office, but I have never thought about personal goals in the same way- yet corporate goals are also visions for someone, so why shouldn’t I treat my dreams in the same way that I manage a project? But doesn't that then make dreams like (gulp) work? Surely the thing about dreams is that they can come true...just like that? Unfortunately not.
Two weeks in and things are working, although my focus has wavered from time to time... Last night I did my first group exercise class in well over a year and 10kgs. As I am lifting that barbell for the squat track, I remember just how much I used to enjoy these classes and how motivated that kept me. Before I could stop it, the brain had ticked into wishful planning mode “I can do a Pump class Mon 6am, Thurs 6am, Tues pm & Sat pm... maybe a spin class when my daughter is at Boot Camp & a Step on Wed & Sat... and maybe...” Just stick to the plan, Jo...one day at a time...
