Do you know anyone who has their goals a little confused?
When we focus more on what we want than on what we need, it is possible to miss what we need. Yes, it is useful to set goals. And yes, those goals can bring us what we want. Taking care of what is essential first makes a difference.
It's the difference between a nutritious meal and a snack. It's the difference between a career and a job. It's the difference between a fling and a relationship. What we need are values-supporting, noble, peaceful ways of bringing about growth and happiness.
It takes longer. It isn't always as fun. It must come first.
Are you setting goals that help you and other meet essential needs and not just wants?
