Do we let goals go OR defer them?

At the end of August my handicap went out to 8 for the first time since 1995.  Now it is exactly 7.8.

Then it was over eight because I resumed competition after a six year lay off. Now I have just changed my home course.

Then I had good reason to be 2 or 3 shots over my previous playing mark. Now there are other factors, but none of them add up to the difference¬† (or at least I don’t think so).

Then I wanted to get my handicap below 8. Now I have a goal to reduce my handicap from 5 to 2.

Do I give up that idea entirely, or just shelve it for now?
