Completely perfect in timing, Tara Swiger’s latest podcast is all about “Why your goal failed” and she even put together a worksheet to help us make better goals. I’m really happy with my goals – the reasons I haven’t fully met mine are good reasons like “it’s hard to meet a running goal when you’ve got the spring cold everyone is sneezing out” and “well, that pattern could be published but you really should rip it out and turn it from OK to fantastic”. But Tara is one of the most clear-sighted people I know (and by know I mean obsessively read and listen to her every word from several thousand kilometres away) and I always find something to learn from her.


Go have a listen if you’re interested in setting good goals and why we sometimes don’t achieve them.
