Pursuing goals

It seems like

Everybody’s out there

Trying to catch that big buck

And I’m just running around

Trying to catch a little rabbit

That sucker dodges here and there

Then sits still

And I’m almost on it

When….pa-Ching…it’s gone again

Moving just out of reach

Sometimes I wonder

Is it the thrill of the chase

Or is it the idea of the catch

That brings us the most satisfaction

In pursuit of a goal

The look on the face

Of those who have

Bagged a big buck

Makes it seem like the catch

Was pretty satisfying

Someone who

Has reached the pinnacle

Of goal achievement

A master big buck hunter

Offered this advice

Don’t get discouraged

Go out there

Chase a rabbit

Go hard after it

Put it in your bag

Chasing rabbits will lead you

Where you want to go

Small successes fuel momentum

They keep you moving forward


You will see

That big buck standing right there


Within your reach
