on goal setting...

Have you noticed how people are so into goal setting these days. My goodness it is everywhere. Its quite sickening really. Most of the time it is like pulling yourself up by the bootlaces I think, quite futile. Not that I'm against progress, mind you, no not at all, but goal setting for goal settings sake is just nuts! I prefer to go on a journey. You come to a stream and need to get to the other side. Look around, there may be a few rocks to aid your way, you hop to the first and then the next. Bit by bit you get across the stream to the other side, then you hoist yourself up the bank, ah we are making progress! Up on the bank you look ahead, oh a paddock to cross and so off you go. That's goal setting to me, just moving quietly forward, past the cow pat, dodge the thistles, on and on, enjoying the journey.
