Setting Goals

Setting goals is an important part of success.

But goals need to be reasonable.

Just setting a goal just for the sake of having a goal is not helpful.

Setting unrealistic goals are a recipe for failure.

If you want to fail set goals that not attainable.

Just like the cartoon below!

So true - "Just setting a goal just for the sake of having a goal is not helpful."

I used to set monetary goals (for the sake of it and because so many encouraged me to do so), yet found I was never motivated to achieve them.

Fun post!

I do like the cartoon. The truth is that when you set goals you cannot come close to achieving it only shows either a lack of experience or that you are not taking the task seriously.
