Much has been written about the need to set goals. Clarity, purpose, direction, focus. All things that we know the setting of goals can bring. Should you tell people about them, put them out there, make them real? Or should you keep them to yourself and quietly go about your business each day making progress toward the realisation of your goal?
I am not sure I have an answer. Much of the focus on goal setting seems to equip you for the Roman Road. One way, straight line, quickest journey from A to B. In my experience reaching a goal is not a straight line, it is the long and winding road full of twists and turns, many of which are designed to take you off course. Stay focused on the destination for sure, but accept that the route may change. You may have to adjust your course to get to where you want to go. It’s the journey that makes you, not the destination.
