Drawback of Goals

Goal setting is a great way to achieve your aim, but it’s a double-edged sword.

When you set a goal, you set an expectation of how your life should be. Unless you’re very lucky, you generally don’t get to live the life that you have planned out for yourself. When we don’t get to live our dream life, the emotion of anger and guilt consumes us until the day we die.

But there’s a way to avoid all the suffering. Set a good intention, not a good goal. When you set a good goal, you work for what you want. When you set a good intention, you work toward what you want. With intention set right only you’ll be in control.
