Why You Should Stop Chasing Goals
Setting goals doesn't give you any magical power...
Goals are important. They indicate an end state that you want to get to, and they help to tell you if you’re heading in the right direction. Having goals in your life could also motivate you to work harder.
For most people on the path toward personal development, goals are central to their focus.
They shouldn’t be. We rely on goals far too much for motivation even though there’s a vast amount of evidence to show that they fall short in keeping people on the path to betterment.
Each year, millions of people set goals on January 1 and they forget about them by March.
That’s because goals are not some magic motivational pill. They are simply results that you want to get to, and results do not happen without difficult work.
What’s more important than setting goals is finding meaning in what you’re doing. Meaning is what will help you to do the difficult work each day that will slowly but steadily get you to the end state that you desire.
