We hear a lot about goals. If you've ever read a book on self-development or listened to a tape, you already know goals are at the core of self-help work. . . grab a goal and grow.
Little attention is given, however, to how we select specific goals.
What makes a good goal? Is there such a thing as a bad one? If so, how do we tell the difference?
First, before we start picking targets and devoting our next several years to them, it might be useful to look more closely at what we're doing. Goals can be a touchy subject, but let's just dive right in, with no punches pulled.
It's been said that until we choose one thing, we have everything - in potential. In other words, you have everything in the Universe to choose from. . . until you choose. Then you're stuck with the one thing you selected, so it should be a good choice that fits you well.
The Hindu god of creation is also the god of destruction. Here's why creation and destruction go together. Take a clean, white sheet of paper. You could put anything on that paper. The first page of a brilliant novel. Any of a million beautiful pictures. Anything.
But the moment you choose one idea and write it or draw it or scribble it down, all those other possibilities recede back into non-existence. When you create one thing, you're destroying the chance of all those other potential things to exist.
That's why it's crucial to choose your goals wisely and with careful awareness, guided by the future outcome you most desire.
