We all want more in life. A successful career, a big happy family, a generous income, body goals, owning a billion dollar company, writing the best books and so much more.
In most of our pursuits, it’s very common for everyone to set goals to achieve them. We foresee, predict, narrow down, climb rocks — using the same steps and methods, but what if we are going the wrong way?
In my opinion, I think:
Setting a Process beats Setting a Goal
Why? Having a process offers you a better way to do things.
Goals Limit Your Happiness.
A lot of times we think to ourselves:
“Once I reach my goal, then will I be happy”
“Once I reach my goal, then will I have the feeling of success”
You are teaching yourself to always put happiness and success off until the next milestone is achieved. There will always be milestones, and if you have to continue that way, then you will never be happy.
I feel its better to commit to a process, not a goal.
A lot of us place unnecessary pressure on ourselves to succeed, make headway, get promoted or lose weight when we can instead keep things simple and reduce stress by focusing on a Process.
I’m not saying goals are useless. Not at all. Goals provide direction. Goals motivate you. Goals drive your ambition.
In fact, goals help you plan your progress, but a process actually helps you make progress.
We should keep on moving. We should do something every day and get better at it, in several ways possible — Through a process.
What do you think? Are you for Goals? or Setting A Process?
