"People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals—that is, goals that do not inspire them."
This week, MG and Jen Grant review the fundamentals of goal setting, mainly, why goal setting is NOT optional.
They review 3 fundamental reasons why goal setting is essential for everyone.
First, goal setting is proof of "intelligence in action!" Stealing a cue from the world of computer programming, if "artificial intelligence is goal-directed behavior," then an intelligent person must set goals.
Secondly, setting goals adds meaning and purpose to life. Sadly, it's those who drift—who don't have worthwhile goals—who think life is boring, lacks meaning, and is worthless—even pointless. Yet, those who have worthwhile goals find value and purpose.
Third, as demonstrated by The Habit Factor®, as you head toward your goal, the process demands that you cultivate supportive habits that will help you achieve that goal. You end up developing good, positive habits!
So, if you're unsure about why goal setting is important, here are just three solid reasons, plus there's an important bonus reason that we'll cover.
Enjoy the episode!
