Business goals are destinations — Once there we move on to the next.
Life Goals are a Continuum — SO LARGE – that they are never fully completed.
The difference is in the end result.
The joy is in the pursuit, not in the acquisition.
The business goal once realised is no longer motivating.
Retirement is a goal realised, it is not motivating once it’s reached – WHAT’S NEXT?
Getting to retirement — Recognising life had been put on hold, when I retire I will ….
Go fishing, play golf, travel, learn a language, join a club, volunteer
All great in the honeymoon period
But they lack the Why – the Purpose – The Meaning that so many of us search for
Instead think -This is my LIFE GOAL — I will decide on it and I will start living it NOW
I will not wait — It’s my life — I make the rules
I want a life of Success, Significance – A life that sends ripples into the next generation
WITH A GOAL – THE WHY – THE PURPOSE – THE MEANING SOOO STRONG that:
Momentum doesn’t time out, the Growth is Significant and the Goal continually pursued.
The importance then is deciding on the LIFE GOAL – It is your PURPOSE
Unrecognised by the limitation of time the Purpose continues
Should it take YOUR PURPOSE a lifetime to reach the top – It is of no consequence as YOU
Continually enjoy the journey, the pursuit of moving towards the goal
At the end of your life, it is not how quickly you got there but how many you helped along the way
In the understanding that:
Wrapped up in your PURPOSE is the answer to somebody else’s problem
