A LIFE WITHOUT GOALS?

Sunday, December 27, 2009



You can’t get far in life if you don’t have any goals. They serve as both a starting point and ending point- giving you both direction and a destination to head for. They serve as a road map or, at times, a complex set of directions that get us from point A to point B in life.

Without a plan in place, we will get lost, find ourselves navigating difficult terrain, or find ourselves stuck driving around in the same old circle day after day after day. The stage will be set for boredom, frustration, anger, fear, and depression to enter our lives.


Some people are okay with wandering around aimlessly. A lucky few use this time as a period of self-discovery. But, to be successful even they eventually settle down with some type of goal in place.


Essentially having a plan, or a set of outcomes, to reach makes our lives easier. They provide you with a:

• A sense of purpose in life
• A sense of personal control in our lives
• A sense of accomplishment once the final destination has been reached.
• A boost in self esteem and confidence
• A sense of success

You are oh, so right.....we must have goals in all aspects of our lives ! One of my goals
is to get my nutrition and exercise more balanced....the nutritional part is fine, but the
exercising side needs more work ! lol

    Great blog, Sandy. And of course - perfectly timed for the end of the year.

I will tell you that personally, having goals set is what is keeping me "sane" as I deal with the grief of losing mom. After I did the 5k Cable Bridge run with the gals, I found my self "lost." So I needed to have another goal - to strive for, and try and work to achieve. I have a 5 mile one in Feb. (closer) and a 1/2 marathon is June (longer term). I even set one up for this Christmas break (I'm sure you read about it in my blog). All of these keep me on track - your blog is RIGHT ON.

Thank you for passing your wisdom on to others. You're awesome! Such a blessing to us all, my friend!

Hugs and love,
Stacey

    Great post, Sandy. I was just trying to decide on my big goals for next year, as well as a weekly goal. Both need to be do-able but not overwhelming.
