On Setting Goals


Begin with the end in mind, Stephen Covey said.

Define your Definite Chief Aim and read it everyday as instructed by Napoleon Hill.

So what is your life goal?

What is mine?

I asked myself this question many times over recently.

I had one many years ago but I guess things didn’t exactly go according to plan.

So is setting life goals pretty pointless?

As what one of my friends put it, is it just a way of just setting yourself out for disappointment?

Well, no one can really guarantee you the future, but putting a stake down in the ground and marking your way forward will probably get you a lot closer to where you want to go, as compared to wandering around in circles.

And more importantly, without a goal you can’t score. 

When nothing’s for sure, anything can happen.

Have a rough plan, figure out the details along the way.

So what’s my goal in life? What’s my definite chief aim?

Well I have my pen and paper in front of me.

It’s time to write.
