Is It Important To Have A Goal Or Aim In Life?
However when it comes to making important decisions in life, which everyone has to, it's easier for people with an aim to make decisions than those without one; simply because no matter what option they choose they'll land in an unknown destination.
Do you think it's important to have a goal in life? Posted in: #Coffee Room
Yes, it is important to have goal in life. Having a goal is having a direction in life. Goal in life is the driving force of each person especially those in poverty.The_Big_KDo you think it's important to have a goal in life?
Do you think it's important to have a goal in life?Yes, it is important because your goals define what you are going to be in the future.
"A man without goal in life is like an ocean without water "
If you aspire to achieve something in your life then goal setting strategy is very essential.To be successful in all your endeavours one should set goals.You need a direction to achieve something.Goals acts as a map to lead you to right path and to measure the progress after putting much efforts.
It is rightly said by Dodson
"Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.”
if you want adventure then don't aim for destination...praveena211"Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.”
I can't think of just one goal in my life. I've many goals-some short termed and some long termed, some with higher priority and some with less.
But one thing for sure is that every goal on my goal list does not contradict any other goal rather it contributes.😀
What if the journey is more important than the arrival?The_Big_Kno matter what option they choose they'll land in an unknown destination.
I was a lone male child with few boys of my age in the neighbourhood. Ended up reading a lot. I decided quite early that I must avoid ambition. I also wanted to do engineering for fun. Edison was (still is) my hero.
To that extent it was a conscious decision. A goal? I have achieved that.
I have no complaints and would do no different if I had another chance.
Once I realised that this was her schedule day-in, day-out and then looked around, I found that thousands if not millions do the same each day.. at least the ones who have their basic needs of food, clothing and shelter taken care of. They are not looking at a destination where they want to be. They would may be aspire that their sons or daughters or spouses achieve something, but that again isn't a *necessary* condition. Not something that needs to happen by hook or crook.
I sometimes wonder if I am oversimplifying what these people do, but I see no other motive or bigger scheme in all things daily. And that brings me to this question - "Is it really important to have a goal or aim in life?" These people are doing without it, without a frown. Most days are mediocre, but merry.
However, when we take a step back and think it through, don't you think that this is the reason why mankind takes thousands of years to progress? If not progress, just to get from Point A to Point B. Isn't living a life without a good aim cheating the nature for all the things it has provided us with - intellect, natural resources and energy?
If anyone has had the patience to read my post through, please do put your thoughts in replies.
What is thousands of years to eons? How much of the progress is really progress?Ankita Katdaredon't you think that this is the reason why mankind takes thousands of years to progress?
If the ultimate goal is self realization, none of this is needed. The journey is inward.
Well said. That makes me wonder though if most of us really ever take the inbound journey as our ultimate goal. My post revolves around the masses out there. The people who never pose that question to themselves - Does my life need a goal?A.V.RamaniIf the ultimate goal is self realisation, none of this is needed. The journey is inward.
Who is this 'I' that is asking? This ego Ramani, Ankita or x, y or z are real only when alive. There is no knowledge about what happens after death. If so, why not do to the best of one's ability what is appropriate to one's current state? If an engineer be a passionate engineer. Give it your best. If a home maker, make it a home that is a role model.Ankita KatdareDoes my life need a goal?
These can be over the life, yearly daily or even hourly.
When you achieve a bit, it encourages you do little more.
whereas in second condition: living life without setting goals. here nature defines a path for us....we may travel , according to design of nature.
But we may came to a finite conclusion that, whatever travelling life with or without setting goals, our ultimate aim is food and shelter.
Every one in the world runs behind the money.....
A person who sets the Goal cannot be a 100% successful person, and a person without setting goal is not being a loser...
Whatever effort he plants, that much profit he reeps.
Goal is the buzzword that I have had when I reached 10th Standard. I didn't have any idea before as all my wishes were being fulfilled. But the actual wishes I got to know after 10th and that's how I started making Goal Sheet.
Today, the list has increased and it has been kept on increasing on daily basis. I feel I need to achieve something so I perform my task with most dedication and interest and finally achieve it with my efforts.
Thanks to CE's that they created such a platform to answer such questions and share your thoughts with other people.
Yes, having aim or goal in life is most important for everyone. Many people ask us about our aim or goal in life, but many people they never think of their aim in life so if people ask them they will be in confusion to tell what they can answer to them. If we tell we don't have any aim in life than people say our life will be waste so everyone should have aim in life.
Every people will have their own aims in life if they can't reach their aim at least they can try to reach out their aim. If you don't have any goal in life then do whatever you like then finally you will get an idea of your main aim/goal in life.
I believe having goals is important chiefly to offer a sense of direction in one's life. Basically, I would say it is like a Google map whereby the user seeks to reach a location through various means such that at the end of the journey one reaches the specified location.
Goals in life are like Google map directions, if you stick to them your life is more defined while when you fail your future is practically accidentally and unguaranteed.
I believe in having Goal in life is very important. There is a quote that "If we have no goal,we will be enguaged in achieving the goals of others",and i agree with this, because i have observed such lives(lives with no goals). Though we think that the path in achieving our goals is straight it is not so, we enguage with many curves,twists and turns,we meet with my hurdles,and make mistakes and learn the things which we call as experience.Ones we get experience, we get respect from the society . So,
NO PAIN, NO GAIN.
You can get different answers from different people for this question.
I personally think that its not mandatory to have a goal or dream in life before stepping into anything.
You can jump into the thing and after some time you can start developing or setting your goals or dreams or targets etc.
Its completely upto you that how, what and when you will do it and its not mandatory as well according to me.
Objective or goal setting is important for every person because it is directionless without the target guy. Purpose in life gives life its meaning.
Person is incomplete in existence with no intention. It is very important to set a goal, and to make efforts to achieve that goal.
