What is the ultimate goal?

What is the ultimate goal?

People who consciously plan and set consistent, well-thought-out goals, are more likely to achieve them.

A simple task to map out your life goals is to write down 25 things you want to achieve in the next 5-10 years.

Any 25 things. Go wild. Be imaginative. How much further in life can you be in 5-10 years?

The first 5-10 things are quite easy

Graduate school, learn a new language, travel to XYZ country, get a job at company XYZ, lose 10 pounds…

Then you start thinking of even greater things.

Do you want to start a business?

A family?

Do you want to make $100,000 annual income, or $1,000,000?

The key here is to both go broad and reach high because most people overestimate what they can accomplish in the short-run, but underestimate what they can accomplish in the long-run.

Now you have your list of 25.

Circle the 5 most important.

What do you do with the rest of the 20 goals?

Forget about them.

The ultimate goal here is to do everything in your power to achieve those 5 circled goals.

This means that everytime you have a few extra hours, you are working towards those goals. Every event, every class, every project you embark on, has to somehow relate to those 5 circled goals. Otherwise, you are wasting your time.
