What’s Wrong With Big Dreams?

The Tide Is Predictable. Are You?
The Tide Is Predictable. Are You?


Big dreams make the world go round.

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.


You know, or maybe you don’t, I write five daily blogs and not every single post is gonna rock your world.

Shipping these blog posts out the door every morning takes guts.

Are you shipping anything? You want to, but you don’t. Someday, right?

Ok, sure. Whatever.

Being in good physical health is popular, and highly valued, but what about the health we talk about at the Next Blog?

  1. Reaching for the impossible is a two edged sword. Sure your striving and building as you inch closer to the goal. But when you reach it; what then? The hard work paid off. A sigh of relief, then exhaustion, and confusion settles over your land. Maybe depression, as you don’t know what to do next. Think about how it felt at the end of a tough semester’s finals. Or think about that poor greyhound racer who catches the stuffed rabbit. Finally caught it — now what?

    The bigger the goal accomplished; the bigger then next goal must be in order to move forward. Or not.

    Of course, we should all reach for lofty goals. For they do move the world. Just be ready for when you reach them. Plan for what’s next.

  2. Patty, you’re absolutely correct – reach the big goal, then what?

    There is one goal that is paramount, and it would seem that we will pursue it until our very last breath – to hear, “Well done, my good and faithful servant”.

    All the other “impossible” goals are “carrots” to keep us moving forward.

    The road to excellence, and to Heaven, has no finish line.

  3. Wow, you’re welcome. There was no intent to correct your focus, because you raised an excellent question. One that made me think intently. Your question was a very generous gift. Thank you.

    It’s a belief, at this point in life that we should have an answer to every question, even if the answer is, I have no idea.

    If we all work together, we can become a nice community of gentle reminders for each other. One of the beautiful social media benefits.

  4. That’s the beauty of your blogs: gentle questions and reminders. I love how something I had read early in the morning will come into play later in the day. Thank you, again.

  5. Thanks. Mostly gentle, and always with good intent. Sometimes (like everyday I think) we all need someone in our face with the truth.

    No pain, no gain.

    Jesus knew about this.

    And the helpfulness is a two-way street. Thank you for yours. Gotta go.
