Why are Goals important?

On the best sunny day, the most powerful magnifying glass will not light paper if you keep moving the glass. But if you focus and hold it, the paper will light up. That is the power of concentration.

Its like in Alice in wonderland, when Alice asked the chesire cat “which way do I go?” and the cat replied “where would you like to go?” and alice says “I don’t know!” To which the cat said “Well, It doesn’t really matter which way you go”

How true. When we don’t know where we are going, any road will take us there.


Suppose you have all the players of a football team, enthusiastically ready to play the game, all fired up, and then someone took the goal post away. What would happen to the game? There is nothing left. How do you keep score? How do you know you have arrived?


Enthusiasm without direction is like wildfire and leads to frustration. Goals give a sense of direction. Would you sit in a train or a plane without knowing where it was going? The obvious answer is no. Then why do people go through life without having any goals?
