Dreams are wonderful, but they are not enough. It’s not sufficient to have a brilliant work of art of the desired result. To straight a magnificent structure one must also have a step-by-step plan of how to lay the foundation, support the structure, and so on. And for that we need goals.
Like a well-defined dream, well-defined goals work like magnets. They pull you in their direction. The better “you define” them, the better “you describe” them, the harder “you work” on achieving them, the stronger “they pull”. And believe me when I say that when the “pot-holes” of life threaten to stall you on the road to your success, you’ll need a strong magnet to pull you forward.
Don’t know how to set your goal, Speak with a Coach
To understand how crucial goals are, observe the vast majority who do not have any goals. Instead of designing their lives, these misguided people simply make a living. They fight every day of their lives in the war zone of economic survival, choosing existence over substance.
No wonder Henry David Thoreau said, “Most people live lives of quiet desperation.”
