How to Set Goals for the Life You Actually Want explores the idea of setting goals based on the journey you want to take to get there. Rather than determining where you want to be in 50 years and then figuring out how you will get there, determine what makes you happy and create your journey. What big, hairy audacious journey have you always wanted to take? What is something you've wanted to learn? What action will you take to start your journey today?
“We adopt goals for one reason and one reason only: to change our lives. Rather than adopting a goal you hope will change your life once you reach it, do it the other way around. Choose the journey that for you would be awesome--the activities, personal growth, and friends. Then choose a goal that acts as a compass to give you that life as part of the journey.”
