Another thing often mentioned is that, when you don't have a set goal, when any problem appears you become reactive, i.e., you enter 'fireman mode', hopefully solve the problem, and then come back to your previous state: there is no growth, you have just gone back to state zero.

My favorite definition of a good goal is What's the most important thing you should be doing right now, and why aren't you doing it? You need only one. Everything else - eating, shopping, chopping onions, sitting on the toilet serves as important maintenance functions on the way to accomplishing this one goal. Just stick to one very important goal at ...

So the mind-tools online dictionary tells us this: Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future, and for motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality. The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. A goal in my humble opinion (correct me if I am wrong anywhere), should ...
