The Problem with Goal Oriented Living

But is this knee jerk “follow up” goal really as automatic in sense of best practice as it seems?

The problem with goals is they sometimes lead to pressure which destroys things, things that can be more important than the follow up goal. Things like team camaraderie or confidence.

Aspirations define, goals achieved tend to be forgotten.

Goals, Aspirations.

We are not defined by goals we achieve, we are defined by who we are and become in pursuit of aspirations.

Aspirations define and swamp out achievement of goals in so far as ethos of our humanity are concerned.

Will you aspire to essence or be content with mere shooting for goals?
