Daily Goal Orientation Avoids Disappointment
We’ve all had the experience of going through a day or longer and asking ourselves what we accomplished. We know that even if we’ve been busy, we haven’t always been purposeful or acted with a goal orientation. An unknown author said, “In the absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.”
Scary thought; isn’t it? We don’t want to always have what can feel like the pressure of goals, but without a clear sense of direction, we have all felt somewhat lost and even unaccomplished.
Consider using a report card approach: grade yourself for five days in a row in the category of “clearly focused on goals,” and see where you are operating in life. You’ll then be equipped to take action based on what you find.
