Why setting big goals can make you miserable


Do you know someone who’s training for a marathon?

I sure do. A growing number of friends and colleagues seem eager to cross “run 26.2 consecutive miles” off their bucket lists.

If you’re chasing that goal, you have my best wishes. But I also want to share an important term: post-marathon syndrome.

This is a well-documented state of sadness, worthlessness and letdown that often follows the big day. It’s a natural human reaction.
