The scaling questions such as "How meaningful is this goal to you on a scale of 1-10" is intended to create awareness.
When your response is 8-10, you'll tend to feel more confidence, and a higher chance of action. When the response is lower like 3-5, sometimes people move quickly to plan B, i.e. "Ok. then I'll do this instead". However, sometimes you might become temporarily deflated. This is unfortunately unavoidable in goal journeys.
There are a number of things you can do in this situation. You can ask yourself:
The idea of deciding "when" can often be an obstacle. Take some of that pressure of yourself and remember goals are usually not meant to be reached, but instead, they are meant to cause movement and progress.
Choosing "when" awakens many things that help your goal progress. The purpose of choosing a date is really to cause yourself to see things differently, and do things differently.
Try to have a very relaxed approach to whether it actually happens on that day and time. Think to yourself, have I made more progress than I would've done without this goal? and start counting all the great things you've been able to do!
