The purpose toward which an endeavor is directed; an objective. Such is the definition. But what really is a goal…and why do we need them?
Why do we set such things in our life? Is this just motivation to fail? I don’t think so.
I read someplace that a goal must be specific. If the goal is not specific enough it will lack clarity and meaning and also a goal must be measurable and have a well-defined outcome.
I think we need to establish goals in our life…big or small. If we don’t know where we are going how will we ever get there?
Sometimes the goals we set are minor…some goals are just mile high dreams that we may never achieve. But I say keep reaching for the stars…what is it they say “Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp — or what’s a heaven for?”
I believe I will continue to set goals in my life…I have a few I am working on, big and small, and I hope someday to share with you all my accomplishments.
