Some goals are just unattainable. Fact.
Either the bar is set too high, the details are too vague, or there is no way to keep track of progress. * Do the lazy thing and don't bother with them.*
After all, they're just DUMB anyway. Dangerously Unattainable Monstrously Big goals.
Make easy SMART goals instead. Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Timely.
Those are ones that require very little thought or effort because they are relevant to your current strength and intelligence "level", ones that you can actually achieve.
