Goal clarification is a continuous process
Chapter 7 p.3
I become so frustrated! Every time I am about to reach my goal the goal posts are shifted! I try to plot the straightest path to reach my goal but it feels like I am meandering all over the show.
It very seldom happens that we steer directly towards our goals, like an arrow on its way to its target. Remember that if human beings don’t have goals, they will not achieve all they could achieve, but…
The method in which we strive towards our goals is always a meandering path.
The fact that the environment is constantly changing calls for agility in reaching goals.
Upon reaching certain goals we have to move on to realizing new goals to avoid life losing its challenge.
Maxwell’s journey of life illustrates to us the fact that we are engaged in a continuous goal clarification process and that we can expect to find both frustration and joy in meandering towards our goals.
Continuous goal clarification is an integral part of managing your career as well setting your KRA’s.
