I want to start asking this question more often. I want to ask people I know. I want to ask myself.
I can’t remember where I heard it—maybe on a morning talk show—but this idea that people inherently need something to look forward to really stuck with me.
I think about this when it comes to my running. Having a goal to strive for is everything for me. Always chasing that PR gives me a real tangible thing to chase. But it doesn’t always have to be a big goal. I look forward to little things, too, like my first sip of coffee in the morning or having a doughnut from my favorite local bakery.
These little things may not seem like much, but they mean a lot when you are discouraged or just needing something to carry you through.
So, I ask you, what are you looking forward to? Let me know by tweeting me. Seriously, I want to know!
