“Give a man a bow and arrow and tell him to, “SHOOT!” and his first response would be, “At what?”  When there is no target there is no purpose for shooting.  He could shoot the arrow anywhere and wherever the arrow ended up would be where the arrow ended up.  Not much to it.

On the other hand, if you gave the archer a target and challenged him to hit the bullseye – everything changes.  You now gave him something to aim at, something to challenge his skills against, something to measure his progress with, and something that gives all of his effort – purpose.  All by adding in a simple target.

That’s what a goal does to a person’s life – It changes everything.  You were given a life and you’ve been told ever since to, “live it.‘  Well, in order to answer that question your first thought should be, “By doing what?”  And that is the key focusing question.

Everybody in this world has a different set of circumstances, different set of skills, and a different set of opportunities through which they can interact with the world and find their unique sense of fulfillment.  You’re mission in life should be to figure out what your unique, “sets” are and how you can take action to best capitalize on them that gives all of your effort purpose and meaning.  Goals are the guiding light that get you there.

“A goal properly set is halfway reached.” ~ Zig Ziglar
