Take a look at your goals, and try letting go
of one of them this week.
Goals aren’t as important as we think. Try working without one or more of them for a week. Turns out, you can do amazing things without goals. And you don’t have to manage them, cutting out on some of the bureaucracy of your life. You’re less stressed without goals, and you’re freer to choose paths you couldn’t have foreseen without them.
1. Make a list of the goals you’re working towards. Pick one of the important ones.
2. Commit to letting go of that goal this week. What does that mean? It just means you don’t ﬁxate on getting to that result — though you can still do things in the area of the goal. For example, you might still write but not focus on ﬁnishing a book by a certain date or reaching a certain number of readers on your blog. You might still go for a run without worrying about losing the weight or hitting a certain number of miles.
3. Instead of worrying about the goal, focus on the enjoyment of the activity. Get excited about doing the activity itself, rather than ending up someplace in the future.
4. Put on ‘Hey Mama’ by Black Eyed Peas and start shaking your booty and get moving. With music like his, who needs goals?

Dear friends, This is a note let you know that I have resigned from my job in the Telstra Social Media team to pursue my passion for education and training. It’s been an amazing almost 3 years with Telstra and I’ve learned a huge amount about the world of corporate communications and social media.
As many of you have witnessed, I have been building my empire and studying solidly throughout 2011-2012. After countless hours of deep thought and planning I have to make this step in a new direction now to really shine doing what I love.
I will continue building my education business, return to part time study in 2013 as well as working part time and freelancing.
I know there will be challenges and I am excited at the prospect. I look forward to spending more time with my kids and having the flexibility to seek out new opportunities which can allow me to make a difference in the lives of young people.
I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you in on my journey and let you know some of the services I am offering.
As I will be working from home and in co-working spaces around Melbourne, you will be pleasantly surprised at my hourly, day and project rates.
Please do keep me in mind and pass on my details to your networks where appropriate.
Thanks and wishing you all the best with your dreams and aspirations in 2013.
You can contact me on Facebook, via my website brendanokeefe.com or simply call me on 61 3 9018 7340
