It’s great to have goals but it is important what purpose a goal serves. The purpose of a goal is not just to achieve or get to an endpoint. This is because as you go through the process of moving closer to your goal you become a different person, you improve. Your skills get better. Your goal might even change.
Secondly, the “goal” is not the be-all and end-all. Your goal is a target that gives you information on how and when to adjust what you are doing. Many times the thought of achieving the goal is much more exciting and motivating than actually reaching it.
It’s the journey that counts. It’s the process that gets you there that develops your new skills and molds you into a newer better version of yourself. When you reach your goal it isn’t over. Instead, you will probably ask yourself now what?
Yes, of course, you want to reach a goal but realize how important the process was. How much you learned along the way about yourself and what you are capable of. That is the magic. Those experiences are always going to be more important than the ned result.
