sets of small goals involved in working up to your final and ultimate goal.
Ben Johnson, Grit
To blame others for keeping us from happiness, fulfillment
and contentment is to waste creative thinking time that we could be using
to solve the real obstacles to our success. While I defend the
concept that people are never the problem, I also support the fact
that people do have problems,
and if we can help them with their problems, we also help
remove the obstacles in the way of our own goals.
Dr. Robert Watts Jr., People Are Never the Problem
The interesting thing about goals is that they often evolve and mutate
even as we are working towards them. The more progress we make,
the more we
understand about them and sometimes, we change the way we see them.
Sometimes we get a little side tracked. What is important to understand
is that this is not neccarily a problem
Meaningful goals are centered around relationships, personal growth, and
are autonomously chosen, meaning we chose the goal because we wanted it,
and not because someone thought we should, to please our parents,
or to live up to other popular ideas of 'success',
such as becoming famous and/ or wealthy.
