The Goldilocks principle is named by analogy to the children’s story given by ‘The Three Bears’, in which a little girl named Goldilocks tastes three different bowls of porridge and finds that she prefers porridge that is neither too hot nor too cold but has just the right temperature. The concept of ‘just the right amount’ is easily understood and applied to a wide range of disciplines.

This principle applies to setting goals too: If the goal seems too hard to achieve, you may be too intimidated to begin. If too easy you may well get bored with it and give up.

With the internet being awash with ideas, opinions, suggestions and distractions, www.MotivateToAchieve.co.uk has ‘just enough’ information, to help settle on that – ‘just the right amount’ – of balance
