🚀 Embrace the Power of LOHAGs! 🚀
Maybe you’ve heard about BOHAGs (Big Ol Hairy “Audacious” Goals) and explored how they can shape our paths to greatness. But hey, let’s be real – life isn’t always about tackling massive goals that span years. Sometimes, we need those quick wins to keep our spirits high and our motivation soaring. That’s where LOHAGs – Little Ol Hairy “Audacious” Goals – come into play, and today I’m excited to share a personal story of how a LOHAG transformed my perspective.
LOHAGs: What Are They?
Think of LOHAGs as the friendly cousin of BOHAGs. While BOHAGs fuel our long-term ambitions, LOHAGs are those bite-sized audacious goals that you can achieve in a relatively short period. They inject a burst of enthusiasm into your routine, allowing you to experience success more frequently and keep the momentum alive.
A LOHAG in Action – A Touchdown Experience
Let’s roll back to September 2019. As a die-hard Cleveland Browns fan, I’d weathered countless disappointing seasons. The agony of witnessing my team struggle was becoming too much to bear. But that year, something shifted. The Browns showed glimmers of promise, and I decided it was time for a change. I didn’t realize it at the time but the 2019 Cleveland Browns season was about to give me more satisfaction than any that decade. It was just going to be in a different way.
The Touchdown Moment:
The NFL season opener was here, and my beloved Browns were taking the field. In previous years, frustration would force me to switch off the TV before halftime. But not this time. I was determined to ride the wave of positivity and turn things around.
Well, the game didn’t go as planned. Once again my TV was off by halftime, and I was left contemplating my commitment. That’s when it hit me – the birth of a LOHAG. I marched outside, announcing to my wife that I was bowing out of Sunday afternoon football for the entire 2019 season. The team’s performance had taken a toll on me, and I was ready for a change.
The Transformative Journey:
Now, you might think my wife was skeptical. Understandably so, given my history of annual declarations against football-watching. But this time, I was on a different trajectory. We made a pact to channel our energy into productive endeavors every Sunday afternoon, tackling home improvement projects that had long been on the back burner.
We crafted a list of projects, and each Sunday became an opportunity to accomplish a task and witness tangible progress. From revamping our Christmast storage area to attending family reunions to tackling DIY improvements, we were turning our weekends into victory marches. The sense of achievement was addicting, and it was all thanks to a simple LOHAG.
Final Score: A Win-Win Situation
By the end of that season, our home was transformed, and so was my perspective. Not only had we conquered projects that had lingered for ages, but I had also freed up my Sundays from the emotional roller coaster of football disappointment. LOHAGs had demonstrated their magic – by breaking down audacious goals into manageable chunks, we had experienced a series of successes that fueled our determination.
By the end of the year we had built a new guitar storage area for our sons, turned unused space into a Christmas storage closest, painted the basement wall, created a home office (just before the pandemic no less!), finished our corn hole set, assembled a basketball hoop (twice), patched a hole in the basement wall (and learned I never want to do that again) and most importantly – got a puppy! All from a simple LOHAG.
Are You Ready to LOHAG?
I’m looking forward to another football season – but if it’s a bad one, I still have my LOHAG Sunday plan. LOHAGs are tickets to more frequent wins, a pathway to overcome challenges, and a way to infuse your life with audaciousness, one step at a time. Whether it’s mastering a new skill, reorganizing your workspace, or cultivating a hobby, LOHAGs can become your secret weapon for continuous growth and accomplishment.
