Who sets the goal ? and for what ? Never understood the importance of setting a Goal. But still I do.
My friend used to say, you stretch to achieve some thing that’s fine but you should look at other things around you that you are stretching to achieve the goal you set. You play to your strengths, but you should learn to play to others strengths, only then the success is shared and happiness is spread. The others could be people, machine, nature, etc.
More to do in the world and things are moving fast, where and when to set the goal doesn’t get defined. Periodically the mind needs to settle and set to meet the goal. The set sometimes looks as if it’s reset but it won’t be, you think you are starting from scratch but it’s not like that, though you start again now you have the learning from the past that will make you pass from your previous failures.
Going beyond your strengths is always the right thing to do, but at what cost ? this should be measured and analyzed before one proceeds. If this requires you to break your knee, this isn’t the right thing to do, isn’t it ?
Complexity is in everything, the world is a complex puzzle only if you try to solve it, but why am I trying to solve something I don’t know or that doesn’t fetch me anything ? Be aware of your surroundings, they motivate you consistently to get indulge in this puzzle game, they take you around and make you believe you are getting successful and solving the right thing, but that’s not true, when you finish you will realize you did nothing but just lost the battle to peace. Because peace is eternal.
Goals are part of desires and when you desire some thing to achieve proportional to or with respect to time you set the goal. The desire is the cause of human error. There is nothing wrong in accepting something that was meant for you, but completely wrong in anticipating that is not meant for you, you need to figure out if you are accepting or anticipating. The works of others are beneficial to you if you make it useful to others, they put you under complications if you are using for self. So, go set the trend, move with the pace of the wind that is driving you, go towards the goal that is set for you, you will succeed no matter what stops you.
Knowing is believing, believing is not knowing as it’s already known.
