“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We must set attainable goals and work hard to achieve those goals. However, we often focus on achieving our goals that we do not get the chance to enjoy the process or the journey toward our goals achievement. Indeed, we must set goals with the hope of achieving them but there is more to life than merely meeting our goals.
Consequently, we need to become better people as we work to accomplish and exceed the goals that we have set for ourselves. We must take the time to learn and grow along the path of our goals' realization. More importantly, we must be cognizant of our growth as we work toward our goals.
Furthermore, we should set S.M.A.R.T goals. For our goals' achievement to be effective, our goals should be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. With S.M.A.R.T goals, there is a greater chance that they will be fulfilled.
Obviously, there will be challenges and obstacles on our goals' journey. Moreover, the experiences we have along the journey towards our goals are indicators of whether or not the goals are in alignment with our highest good or not. However, if we are living our highest purpose, then the overall journey towards our goals should be as pleasant for us as having our goals reached will be.
Finally, we should learn, grow change and expand on the journey of achieving our goals. We should feel that our lives are happening now, not just when our goals are actualized.
