Why are Goals Important? - Must read

On the best sunny day, the most powerful magnifying glass will not light paper if you keep moving the glass. But if you focus and hold it, the paper will light up. That is the power of concentration.

A man was traveling and stopped at an intersection. He asked an elderly man, "Where does this road take me?" The elderly person asked, "Where do you want to go?" The man replied, "I don't know." The elderly person said, "Then take any road. What difference does it make?"

How true. When we don't know where we are going, any road will take us there.

Suppose you have all the football eleven players, enthusiastically ready to play the game, all charged up, and then someone took the goal post away. What would happen to the game? There is nothing left. How do you keep score? How do you know you have arrived?

Enthusiasm without direction is like wildfire and leads to frustration. Goals give a sense of direction. Would you sit in a train or a plane without knowing where it was going? The obvious answer is no. Then why do people go through life without having any goals?

true...

But i think aim only the goals which are achievable else they will also led to frustration

Read "The Secret". It doesn't matter if goals are big or small, if you follow the Secret, it's just as easy for the universe to bring anything to you.

nice post....


but it does nt make any difference k.... "life with having goals and u r unable to fulfilling them for whatever reson at right time or age also leads to frustration..."

what do u say?

Tarun said...

hmmmm

you are right....


Actually People confuse goals with dreams and wishes. Dreams and wishes are nothing more than desires. Desires are weak. Desires become strong when they are supported by


direction
dedication
determination
discipline
deadlines

That is what differentiates a desire from a goal. Goals are dreams with a deadline and an action plan. Goals can be worthy or unworthy. It is passion, not wishing, that turns dreams into reality.

If you have something which you can not fulfill then that is not goal. That is just a desire and we can turn a dream into reality by:

1. Have a definite, clear written goal.
2. Have a plan to accomplish it.
3. Read the first two twice a day

Hope you'll like it. its my perspective. Always waiting for your comments.

In life we have but once a choice,
To grieve in pain,weep or rejoice,
The road we take,and goals we make,
May lead us up or into the lake

u have adressed precisely rather than putting lengthy quotes to impress other.One more thing only those people make the goal in life who really wants to do something..rest are tangled between fantasies and goal.People who are serious in their life..they can easily elaborate about goal..

A person without a goal is a person who has no direction in life but a person who set goals and achieved them that makes a person successfull in anything he does.

As the saying goes plan ur work and work ur plan.
