But the sense of accomplishment when one reaches one's goal is just that. A sense of accomplishment. Something to be proud of. Even better when one reached the same goal yesterday and the day before. The goal morphs and it becomes about the streak, the number of days one can string together more than the goal itself.
There is always adversity. Each and every day. It doesn't matter the goal, there are forces determined to get in the way, temptations to distract. Some distractions are good and worthy things in themselves, but distractions nonetheless.
Congratulations, if you have a goal and have found the fortitude to meet it. Good for you.
(Btw, my goal is to walk every day. Today is day 100. Haven't missed a day yet and it feels good.)
