Every day of our lives, we need some goal to aim for, a purpose to hold on to. But what goals are worth all the effort and what are not? How do we decide and prioritize?
To keep all our actions coordinated, we are constantly in need of some long and short-term goals. But how do we set these goals? Is there a system we should use?
The ultimate goal for each of us is being happy. But there is no couple of people that have the same way of achieving the ultimate happiness.
And this is why you should divide the ultimate goal into smaller and smaller parts until you get yourself a bunch of realistic, short-term goals.
When you know your short-term goals, yourself about each of those: will this goal help me get to the final destination? How will it affect the big scheme of things? And only if the answer fulfills you, proceed with that goal.
