Stranded on an island, with no direction and nowhere to go, is exactly how your life feels without clear and concise goals. It can feel like running up and down a soccer field and never scoring.
Setting a goal can seem like a cliché, but really, it’s a very important step toward a successful and meaningful life. We do not realize it, but we make goals every day. We plan our whole day around a goal, and at the end, we think of the goals we weren’t able to reach. Goals are an external representation of your inner desires, a constant reminder of what you want to achieve, and it provides you a road map of where you stand and where you want to go. Life is complex, but with well-defined goals, we can push ourselves closer to our purpose. When we find the right answer, life get’s much simpler.
While it is not necessary to have “great” goals, it is important to know your desires, because that’s the first step. Additionally, it’s not important to rush into your goals; you can slowly and gradually take steps toward them. In fact, it’s easier to divide your goals into smaller, actionable tasks, which are achievable and will ultimately help you reach them. Goals tend to stick in your mind, and when not completed they give you something like “Shoot! I was supposed to do this today.” You need to have a plan of action, as a plan is needed to build a house, a plan is needed in life.
Regularly achieving goals no matter how big or small, can add value and meaning to your life and even a sense of control.
Life is too short for regrets, too short to complain and to use the word “I wish.” So go and think about what the bigger purpose of your life is, and what heights you want to reach. When you will reach it, it’s a euphroic moment that will be sure to push you to set and achieve even more goals.
Experience that moment more often.
